Logos, KKR, Mubadala JV buys industrial development sites in Australia

A joint venture between Logos, KKR and Mubadala Investment Company has acquired a large-scale industrial land parcel in Huntingwood, Sydney and a strategic infill site in Reservoir, Melbourne with a combined development end value of A$640 million.

The two properties are located within key established industrial precincts in Sydney and Melbourne, with plans for the sites to be developed into prime multi-unit logistics estates, expected to benefit from their proximity to local key infrastructure, government investment, and growing customer demand.

The 21.5ha greenfield site at Augusta Street, Huntingwood is strategically located in Sydney’s central west, offering excellent access to existing amenity and major road infrastructure, including the adjacent M4 Motorway and Great Western Highway.

The 7.8ha site at Radford Road, Reservoir resides in a central ‘last mile’ location in Melbourne’s inner north being 13kms north of the Melbourne CBD and with access to the Western Ring Road, Hume Freeway and Tullamarine Freeway.

Logos’ Head of Australia and New Zealand, Darren Searle, said: “The Huntingwood site is one of the largest remaining industrial zoned land holdings in central-west Sydney capable of delivering a large-scale prime-grade logistic estate. With strong connectivity to key transport infrastructure, The Estate will be able to support the increasing demand from e-commerce, transport and logistics customers looking to service Western Sydney’s growing residential population”.

Logos’ General Manager Development Victoria, Myron Poobalasingam, added: “At the Reservoir site we will be delivering a prime-grade Estate which will benefit from its infill location, flight to quality from local occupiers and speed to income through a timely and efficient development programme”.

The acquisitions follow the venture’s initial seed asset in April 2021, being an 18.2ha prime development site in Wacol, Brisbane, currently under construction with a significant tenant pre-commitment.

Logos said the transactions reflect the venture’s investment strategy to acquire and develop modern, high-quality logistics facilities across Australia’s core markets, and increases the portfolio end value to A$900 million.
