Hub gets go-ahead

MIR­VAC PLANS IN­DUS­TRY SITE

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

A HUGE in­dus­trial hub at the junc­ture of the M4 and M7 mo­tor­ways at East­ern Creek has been given the green light.

More than 120,000sq m of ware­hous­ing and of­fice space will be built on the 22ha old govern­ment quar­an­tine site af­ter the Depart­ment of Plan­ning and En­vi­ron­ment gave the Mir­vac Group plan­ning ap­proval. Ac­cord­ing to Mir­vac, work at the Cal­i­bre site could gen­er­ate about 300 con­struc­tion jobs for western Syd­ney and up to 700 full­time em­ploy­ees once op­er­a­tional.

Stu­art Pen­klis from Mir­vac said the site of­fered a unique chance for largescale users to con­sol­i­date op­er­a­tions and in­crease ef­fi­cien­cies.

“Cal­i­bre will set a new bench­mark for in­dus­trial prop­erty, of­fer­ing flex­i­ble of­fice and ware­house fa­cil­i­ties,” he said.

“In the era of on­line retail and same-day de­liv­ery, a ma­jor con­sid­er­a­tion for lo­gis­tic com­pa­nies is ac­cess.

“Cal­i­bre’s prox­im­ity to ma­jor mo­tor­ways with its own ded­i­cated sig­nalling in­ter­sec­tion, will max­imise speed of de­liv­ery, which will ul­ti­mately de­liver im­prov­ing ef­fi­ciency.”

De­mo­li­tion works be­gin this month and full con­struc­tion works will fol­low in March.
