Andrew Caldwell, General Manager, Asset Management at Frasers Property Industrial says Victoria’s seeing incredibly tight vacancy rates across the industrial and logistics sector and this is driving strong demand for quality warehouse and distribution facilities in strategic locations.
“Our recent deals with BESIX Watpac, Samsung, AutoPacific Group, John Cotton, Bambis and Russell Athletics within a short time period are reflective of this level of demand, the quality of the assets we have under management,” he says. “It’s particularly encouraging to be able to continue long-term relationships with customers like AutoPacific Group as well as to begin new partnerships.”
The above leasing deals are managed by Frasers Property Industrial for Singapore-listed Frasers Logistics & Commercial Trust (FLCT).
