Hub gets go-ahead
MIRVAC PLANS INDUSTRY SITE
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.
