Nissan Motors has been secured as the anchor tenant for Frasers Property Australia (Frasers Property) and ESR Australia (ESR1) newly purchased Mulgrave site

The 4.67 acre 254 Wellington Road site has received planning approval for 60,000 sqm of commercial space, a 752 sqm café/retail area and 2,497 car spaces.

A community hub is also envisaged incorporating a gymnasium, restaurant and activated outdoor open space.

The business park is expected to have an end value of A$400 million when completed.

Anthony Maugeri, General Manager, Southern Region Commercial & Industrial, for Frasers Property Australia stated, “Frasers Property, in joint venture with ESR, previously developed 211 Wellington Road with a strong track record in attracting major corporates to the area. 

"We plan to develop a state-of-the-art business park and are eager to deliver industry-leading amenity on the site to assist in attracting large commercial occupiers,”he said.

Phil Pearce, Chief Executive Officer at ESR Australia said, “This is an exciting project for ESR and Frasers Property as we commence a large-scale business park development in Melbourne’s south-east. We are seeing Mulgrave emerge as a growing suburban commercial office market"

Nissan Australia’s Managing Director Stephen Lester said, “Our current office was officially opened in June 1977, so over the 40 plus years that we have based ourselves here it has served us well, but we have grown as a business since then."

Nissan Australia’s 11,000 sqm facility will be spread across five levels (including ground level) of the 8 level building and will comprise over 9,000 sqm office, 1,850 sqm workshop and 550 car bays.

The new building, situated on the corner of Wellington Road (60 metre frontage) and Peters Avenue will achieve a 5 Star Green Star Design & As Built v1 certified rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

The joint venture is a 50:50 split between Frasers Property and ESR. Frasers Property secured the 245 Wellington Road site, while ESR will undertake the development. Nissan Australia’s building is anticipated to be completed by May 2020 while the entire development is forecast for completion by late 2025.

Practical completion of the facility is due in May 2020.
