Welcome to the latest edition of SPACE Industrial for 2019, which showcases our premium listings across the country, features editorials and insights from our latest market reports.

It has been an exciting year to date for the Knight Frank Industrial business, with a number of key transactions finalised across all markets. On behalf of Frasers Property, our Sydney and Brisbane team negotiated a 20,662 sqm pre-lease at Burley Road, Horsley Park.

The Brisbane team sold a 6.4 hectare site at 168 Anton Road, Hemmant for $37.75 million to Sentinel Property Group, while our Sydney team negotiated the sale of a 10,474 sqm site at Clunies Ross Street, Greystanes for $24.5 million to Aliro Group.

In Melbourne, on behalf of ESR Australia, we leased a 10,450 sqm distribution centre at 25 Strezlecki Avenue, Sunshine West to Agco Australia, while in Perth our team leased a 9,313 sqm facility at 15 Ashby Close, Forrestfield to Warners Transport.

Greg Russell, Partner, Industrial Logistics, QLD, notched up 25 years of service with Knight Frank. Greg’s ability to build long standing relationships is a testament to his character and to the knowledge he offers both our clients and colleagues.

In this edition, we turn the spotlight on speculative development and identify what key factors are driving the market forward.

In our Q&A section, Western Australian’s Geoff Thomson shares his insights on the Perth market and how to add value to clients, in this ever-changing landscape.

Our operatives share their insights on emerging industrial locations across the Eastern Seaboard and Andrea Brown, Partner, National Head of Project Management & Building Consultancy at Knight Frank Australia and Michael Hatzinikolis of Steve Watson & Partners share their industry expert advice on sprinkler systems.

We’ve made this edition’s ‘Industriaword’ harder to crack – can you solve it? Find the hidden word for your chance to win an industrial toolkit.

I invite you to contact any of our national operatives who will happily respond to your enquiry or connect you with your local expert. When you interact with Knight Frank, you are connecting with more than one person, or one group – you are connecting with the entire global Knight Frank team.

As always, we trust you will enjoy our latest edition of SPACE Industrial.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Salerno
Partner, National Head of Industrial
