Plumbago Business Estate offers prime industrial leases
Industrial space at the Plumbago Business Estate, a new development situated close to the OR Tambo International Airport is now available for lease.
Located in the Pomona business node on the R21 highway corridor, the development has excellent access to main freeways.
The 30 hectare property was bought for development by JT Ross, a company with over a century’s experience in the construction, development and property services’ market. Broll was responsible for the sale and is now also marketing the development.
“Industrial property is very much a location critical asset type and all the stakeholders involved – from tenants to owners to businesses need the location factors to work for them,” says Clive Williamson, Director, Industrial Broking at Broll. “With all the fundamentals and location factors in place, Plumbago Business Estate is already attracting widespread interest.”
There is a growing international trend that suggests that industrial areas located around airports grow faster than other industrial nodes. Also in an increasingly globalised world that is conducting more business online, just in time manufacturing offers significant competitive advantages in many industries. An important factor in how quickly a company can get its goods out the door and on the road to its customers has to do with warehouse or distribution center location in respect to major airports.
Williamson adds, “With the widening of the R21 highway and the provision of the new Atlas Road interchange, Pomona has developed rapidly as an industrial node of note and any investment or long term lease is definitely a good strategic move for the future.
The location is undoubtedly key here and is perfect for any business where proximity to airports and highways is important to successful operations.”
The increasing shortage of top quality industrial space that has good transportation links and reliable infrastructure makes Plumbago Business Estate one of the most sought after and strategically important developments in the Pomona node.
A number of large users have already secured space at Plumbago Business Estate. Williamson explains that part of the attraction is that premises can be built to tenant requirements. “The customisable space and variety of features makes Plumbago Business Estate a highly versatile property adaptable for a wide-range of tenants,” he adds.
