Frasers Property Australia’s (Frasers Property) Horsley Drive Business Park has received the highly coveted LJ Hooker Commercial Award for Best Industrial Park at the Property Council of Australia and Rider Levett Bucknall’s Innovation & Excellence Awards 2019.
Horsley Drive Business Park is a 20.4 hectare site owned by Western Sydney Parklands Trust (WSPT) and is located on the corner of Cowpasture Road and Horsley Drive in Western Sydney. Frasers Property entered into a development agreement with WSPT to deliver a high-quality industrial estate with a mix of facility types.
Reini Otter, Executive General Manager Commercial & Industrial for Frasers Property Australia, comments, “As market leaders in industrial development, Frasers Property is committed to maintaining a leadership position in this space. Horsley Drive Business Park in Western Sydney provided the perfect platform to showcase our credentials in the industrial area. This estate has redefined the benchmark for excellence in industrial parks across Australia.
“The park also boasts significant environmental credentials and has achieved a 6 Star Green Star rating from The Green Building Council of Australia – the first of its kind in Australia.”
He added, “The estate was primarily master-planned to deliver supply chain efficiencies, however architectural presentation was also prioritised. A modern, sophisticated architectural expression was applied to enhance the estate visually using high-quality materials and finishes.
“An innovative business structure has resulted in outstanding results for all key stakeholders as well as continued ongoing benefits for the community including the creation of 700 jobs, in addition to an income stream for future regeneration initiatives within Western Sydney Parklands for many years to come.”
Horsley Drive Business Park is fully occupied and consists of five buildings comprising eight companies including hi-tech manufacturing, chilled food distribution, homewares manufacturing and distribution and advanced logistics.
