Electrolux Group named next Port of Brisbane tenant

Port of Brisbane

Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) has signed Electrolux Group as the first tenant for Stage 2 of its Port West industrial estate in Lytton.

Electrolux Group, a global appliance company, has taken a ten year lease over a 42,200-square-metre site which will be anchored by a purpose-built distribution centre and showroom.

The site will include a 21,255-square-metre warehouse, a ground-floor office and high-end showroom, a first-floor office, dock office and hardstand/truck apron and car parking.

PBPL is claiming the new facility will allow for a simple transition for staff, in an ideal location for the shipping of white goods, minimising first and last mile transport costs.

As well as achieving improved truck access and significant logistics and cost benefits, the user-friendly centre will also prioritise innovative technologies and enhanced operating procedures to ensure the ongoing safety and wellbeing of employees, contractors and visitors.

Electrolux Group will join PBPL’s other tenants across the wider estate, including Bunnings, Fisher & Paykel and Steelforce.

PBPL CEO, Neil Stephens, said he was pleased to welcome such a significant anchor tenant to Port West Stage 2.

“Port of Brisbane provides an unrivalled opportunity for trade-related businesses such as the Electrolux Group, including the availability of large format greenfield sites located so close to the Port’s terminals and wharves,” he said.

According to Stephens, this will be the first time PBPL will seek to deliver a 6-Star Green-Star rated facility for its customers.

The opportunity to do so, he said, aligns strongly with PBPL’s own sustainability ambitions.

“We’re extremely pleased to be working collaboratively with the Electrolux Group to ensure we deliver this for them in line with their own global sustainability objectives,” he said.

“Our teams have worked together to design and now commence delivery on a long-term, sustainable home for the Electrolux Group that will support its operations now and its growth into the future.”

In designing the facility to meet the 6-Star requirements, PBPL is incorporating a rooftop solar installation as well as a Glulam and CLT timber structure to the office and showroom.

It will also utilise low carbon concrete solutions where practical.

The new facility will be delivered by principal contractor McNab, with project management by Johnstaff and JLL, design by architects Sparc Architects and structural solution by Northrop Consulting Engineers.

Construction is expected to start by the end of the year, with completion anticipated by October 2024.
