New tenants are signing up in Sydney’s Moorebank industrial precinct.

More than 135,000 square metres of space in the precinct has been taken up over the past 12 months, CBRE said.

The group said its industrial and logistics team had represented Goodman, an industrial property developer, in leasing approximately 90,000 square metres in the area.

Briggs & Stratton, an American manufacturing group, signed a five-year lease on a brand-new facility spanning 14,500 square metres at the Oakdale South Industrial Estate.  

Aidacare and Permaform have both relocated from other spaces to the former Briggs & Stratton facility on initial five-year terms, with a NLA of 11,443 square metres.  

Rentals in the Moorebank industrial precinct range from approximately $115 - $130 per square metre per annum, CBRE advised.

The recent uplift in tenant activity in Moorebank was being driven by large scale vacancy becoming available in 2018, CBRE’s Tom Rourke said.

“With the IMEX intermodal set to be operational by the second quarter of this year – creating a direct connection and between Port Botany and MLP via a dedicated freight line – many logistics companies are seeing MLP as a gamechanger in the market,” Rourke said.  

“MLP provides a considerable cost advantage over some other industrial precincts such as Botany and Matraville.

“Furthermore, there is also potential for Moorebank to evolve into a last mile location given the reduced truck congestion on the M5 and completion of WestConnex, which will reduce metro delivery times to bring MLP more in line with more established last mile locations such as Homebush and Chullora.”
