LOGOS officially celebrates the construction of the Hilton Meat Processing and Distribution Facility at Heathwood Logistics Estate in Brisbane this morning with Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and Hilton CEO, Robert Watson OBE.

The ceremony marks the official commencement of development works on the circa 45,000 sqm purpose- built meat processing and distribution facility for Hilton Foods Australia Pty Limited (Hilton), being a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hilton Food Group plc, the international specialist retail meat packing company. Foundation works commenced late last  year, with structural steelworks underway. The facility is the second stage of LOGOS’ 25 hectare Heathwood Logistics Estate, with the Ashai Beverages facility completed in November 2017.

Hilton committed to  an initial 15  year lease term on the facility in  September last year and will invest up  to $115 million for plant and equipment for the warehouse. Hansen Yuncken and TM Insight have been appointed builder and project manager respectively for the development, with works scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2019.

Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said attracting major commercial businesses to Brisbane was part of a strategic focus to grow Brisbane’s economy.

This project demonstrates Brisbane’s ability to attract significant commercial investment and will create 500 new jobs with the potential to generate $850 million for our city’s economy.

The Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan identified food and agribusiness as a key growth sector  for the city, so we welcome this investment from both Hilton Foods and LOGOS in Brisbane, Cr Quirk said.

LOGOS’ Joint Managing Director, John Marsh, said: “Today’s event is an important milestone for the project and the local area. It’s been fantastic to have had the ongoing support from Brisbane City Council on this project and the broader Heathwood Logistics Estate. We’re excited to be continuing to work with them, Hilton and all our partners on delivering this world leading facility in Brisbane”.

Hilton Chief Executive Officer, Robert Watson OBE, added: “This new facility is a strategic investment for our business. It provides excellent exposure and access to the Logan Motorway and  broader arterial roads into the Port of Brisbane and Brisbane Airport which is key in delivering our quality meat products to Woolworths stores. With construction scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2019, we are looking to have our first delivery in January 2020”.

Combined with Asahi Beverages facility and future development of the residual Heathwood site, the estate will be a super, prime logistics estate worth over of A$400 million. The estate is one of several prime development sites owned by the LOGOS Australia Logistics Venture (LALV), a partnership established in late 2014 between LOGOS and its capital partners with a strategy to acquire and develop prime logistics estates across Australia.
The LOGOS Queensland team manages a portfolio of land and  developments opportunities across  the state, with sites in Berrinba, Heathwood, Larapinta, Port of  Brisbane and  Southport.  These represent more than 62 hectares of site area and will deliver over $600 million of development value across LOGOS’ various ventures. LOGOS’ Australian development pipeline now stands at $1.9 billion across New South, Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland.
