One of Sydney’s most geographically central and strategically connected logistics areas is set to be developed into a new industrial estate.
NSW Ports and industrial property company Goodman Group will develop NSW Ports’ industrial estate at Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre (Enfield ILC).
Enfield ILC is set on 60 hectares of industrial zoned land located at Mainline Road, Strathfield South. The site includes the active Enfield Intermodal Terminal, currently operated by Aurizon, empty container storage areas, and 30 hectares of serviced industrial land, ready for development.
Strategically located only 15km west of the Sydney CBD, the site benefits from direct access to the M4 and M5 motorways and dedicated freight rail infrastructure.
NSW Ports CEO Marika Calfas said: “Our 30 year Master Plan for the Enfield site is focussed on increasing the number of containers moved by rail to and from Port Botany. In order to make this a reality, we need to ensure the site includes high quality warehouse and logistics operations for our customers.”
Goodman’s general manager for Australia Jason Little said: “The key differentiator of this site to other warehouse and logistics facilities in Sydney is its proximity to the onsite intermodal facility and the dedicated freight rail line, providing direct access to and from Port Botany, and rail connections to regional NSW and interstate locations.
“In addition to rail access, being located so close to the Sydney CBD means that Enfield ILC is ideal for facilitating ‘Last mile delivery’, ensuring customers are close to their end consumers,” he concluded.
With 24/7 access and General Industrial (IN1) zoning, the site is suitable for a range of customers in the logistics, freight forwarding, pack-unpack, import-export, transport, and warehousing sectors.
The facilities will be built to Goodman’s standards and will integrate ecologically sustainable designed principles. Goodman is marketing the site for pre-lease development ranging from 2,000 square metres, capable of delivery in 2018.
