Ivanhoé Cambridge and LOGOS Break Ground at Broadmeadows Logistics Estate, Melbourne

Tuesday 11th May 2021

LOGOS officially commenced construction of its $230 million Broadmeadows Logistics Estate in Melbourne today with Hume City Mayor, Joseph Haweil breaking ground on the Estate. The 25-hectare Estate recently received approval for the development of 120,000sqm high quality warehouse space on the site.

LOGOS has been working with Hume City Council over the past eight months on the planning for this Estate and has also secured its first pre-commitment for a purpose-built 12,600sqm facility.

LOGOS’s Head of Australia and New Zealand, Darren Searle said the Broadmeadows Logistics Estate is a strategic investment for LOGOS and its capital partner, Ivanhoé Cambridge, given its location within one of Melbourne’s key infill northern industrial suburbs.

“We have been receiving strong interest from new and existing customers for prime grade logistics assets in the north of Melbourne over the past few years and the Broadmeadows site provides us with a well-located property to cater to this demand and also service the airport precinct overflow.

“We are excited to be starting work on the Estate, which is our seventh development in Melbourne. Our focus will be on supporting the core logistics sectors of e-commerce, distribution, food and cold storage,” Mr Searle added.

“We are delighted to move towards a low carbon economy alongside with our partners, and this project perfectly fits in Ivanhoé Cambridge’s commitment to achieve net zero carbon by 2040,” said George Agethen, senior Vice-president, Asia-Pacific at Ivanhoé Cambridge.

Broadmeadows Logistics Estate is targeting a 5 Star Green Star Communities rating and a 5 Star Green Star Design and As Built rating in line with Ivanhoé Cambridge and LOGOS’ sustainability commitment. Sustainability initiatives to be incorporated include recycling 98% of materials from the demolition of the existing buildings, incorporating colorbond roofing materials to reduce heat island effect and including a minimum of 98kW solar panels on all facilities within the Estate.

The Estate offers excellent access to Melbourne’s key transport network including the Western Ring Road, Tullamarine Freeway and the Hume Highway interchange, as well as the Victorian Government’s planned North East Link, which is key for customers. Warehouses within the Estate, ranging from 15,000sqm to 50,000sqm, are now available for lease.

LOGOS’ Asia Pacific portfolio comprises 100 logistics estates across nine countries with AUM of approximately $14.9 billion. LOGOS counts some of the world’s largest fund managers as its shareholders, including ARA Asset Management and Ivanhoé Cambridge
