Colliers agents Marcus Allchin and Mark Yazbeck, in conjunction with Hunter Real Estate Parkes’ Matthew Hunter, have been exclusively appointed to bring approximately 19,279sqm of Specialised Retail and Light Industrial space for lease or sale to market on behalf of Stevens Group.
Situated in regional New South Wales and part of the 4,800 hectares Parkes Special Activation Precinct (the first Special Activation Precinct for regional New South Wales), Parkes Gateway will act as the future entrance to Australia’s largest inland port connecting export goods directly to the national and global market.
Colliers’ Marcus Allchin said, “The future inland port will make it possible to transfer export-ready goods to every major city and freight centre across the country and provide opportunities for new industries in agriculture, freight and logistics, manufacturing, energy and resource recovery and transport to be sent across the nation due to Parkes Special Activation Precinct regional location.”
“The precinct uniquely benefits from being the only junction of Australia’s two rail spines, the Inland Rail and the Trans-Australian Railway, Parkes Gateway is set to become regional Australia’s largest inland epicentre of transport and logistics,” said Mr Allchin.
Parkes Gateway is one of six sub-precincts within the Parkes Special Activation Precinct, with a goal to be the first Australian UNIDO Edo-Industrial Park and the first centre west of Sydney to provide access to every major mainland port, being able to reach 80% of Australians within 12 hours.
Colliers’ Mark Yazbeck said, “Parkes Gateway will initially be delivered in three stages, with Stage 1 comprising a state-of-the-art Highway Service Centre operated by BP Australia. The centre will provide facilities for the increasing number of passing heavy vehicles, along with the growing number of regional domestic road use.
Stages 2 and 3 are to follow with an estimated 19,279m2 of building area suited for light industrial and special retail operations. Stages 1-3 are forecast for completion in 2025,” Mr Yazbeck added.
Being the first of the NSW Government’s Special Activation Precinct projects, the Parkes Special Activation Precinct will become a new innovative regional precinct that will bring together planning and investment to drive jobs and economic activity in the area.
