Lighting group to switch Melbourne warehouse

Matthew Woodward and Nettletribe penned ULC’s Braeside project.

Urban Logistics Co has secured WE-EF Lighting to a Braeside property it bought in 2021 permit-ready for an expansion.

LAWD this month poached Henry Sayers from specialist Cameron Industrial.

A sod-turning event to celebrate just that took place this week.

The 4600 tenancy is scheduled for delivery late this year. Matthew Woodward and Nettletontribe are the architects.

Its grounds will also be landscaped.

WE-EF will upsize from another rented Braeside property just ahead of expiry.

“The location, design and focus on sustainability at the Braeside facility aligns directly with our prioritisation of responsible resource management in all areas – from the life cycle assessment of the individual products to the sustainability of all our processes,” WF-EF head of Region, Australia/New Zealand, said.

The deal comes a fortnight since Peter Sagar from LAWD, having launched an industrial division and poaching Henry Sayers from specialist Cameron Industrial, with colleagues Paul Callanan and Darcy Tobin, listed the 70.4 hectare outgoing Cranbourne Golf Course, south of Braeside, with c$125m-plus price hopes.

Another south east Melbourne pre-commitment

The WE=EF deal comes a month since we reported Design Group Australia, or ID Design Group, which is licensed to sell, amongst other brands, Barbie, Disney, Marvel, Hot Wheels, Star Wars and Toy Story party products here, leased a major Dandenong South warehouse, now set for a significant upgrade (story continues below).

Frasers Property Industrial is the landlord – it launched a leasing campaign for the unrenovated 98-126 South Park Drive, last July.

On 4.96 hectares, it contains 28,062 square metres (with an 11 metre warehouse clearance).

There are also 163 car parks and an onsite gate house.

DGA, represented by TMX, is based at nearby Clayton South.

The South Park Drive property will be ready about this time next year.

Dandenong South is 31 kilometres south east of Melbourne’s CBD.
