It sits on an 8250 sqm Industrial 1 zoned parcel within Vaughan’s Wyndham Estate.

There’s four years remaining of the current lease.

“This is not the first time and it certainly won’t be the last time that we see purchaser’s taking advantage of a technology which has proven to be extraordinarily good at showcasing industrial properties,” Mr Jones said.

“In this case the property had several very notable attributes which made a compelling investment case.

“It is a quality, purpose-built facility by highly regarded national builder Vaughan Constructions, with a secure lease to a national tenant, and in one of the most sought after industrial locations in Australia”.
