Frasers Property Industrial in Australia has secured another tenant for its 41.3-hectare industrial estate in Melbourne’s Dandenong South.

National supplier of commercial and industrial textiles, Nolan Group, has signed a seven-year lease at Rubix Connect, centralising operations.

“Nolan Group will consolidate multiple warehouses across Melbourne’s southeast into one high-grade facility at Rubix Connect. The state-of-the-art facility is set to cater to our growth and support us in creating economies of scale,” said Director of Operations for Nolan Group, Warren Wild.

Nolan Group will occupy 7,961 square metres of the Frasers industrial estate, comprising 7,441 square metres of warehouse and a 520 square metre office.

Originally designed as a speculative facility, the architecturally-designed warehouse reaches 11.5 metres in springing height and includes four on-grade roller doors, three recessed loading dock and has 71 car spaces.

The next-generation facility combines sustainable materials with a warm and welcoming aesthetic, designed under Frasers Property Industrial’s new Building Design Guidelines. It is located at a prominent estate position on the corner of Fox Drive and Goodall Close.

The new facility is designed to reduce operational greenhouse emissions with a 400kW solar PV system, 200kWh battery storage system and a 400kVA biodiesel generator. It will also target a 5 Star Green Star Design and As Built v1.3 certified rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

“Occupiers have shown interest in industrial facilities in Melbourne’s southeast region due to the area’s great transport linkages,” said General Manager – Victoria, for Frasers Property Industrial, Andrew Hanna.

“Extremely low vacancy rates for premium industrial stock in the southeast has coupled with a commercial flight to quality and amenity, making our developable land at Rubix Connect extremely popular.”

“The inclusion of quality speculative facilities in our construction strategy has proven successful over the years, with strong leasing enquiries and pre-commitments, including our recent deal with Nolan Group.

“We are excited to welcome Nolan Group to the estate and are looking forward to working with them to create a future-ready facility for its expanded operations.”

Rubix Connect boasts convenient road linkages to EastLink (M3), Frankston – Dandenong Road and the South Gippsland Highway, as well as Taylors Road, which has been earmarked for extension, further improving access to the estate.

The land is also located in close proximity to the intermodal freight terminal, which will improve the area’s connectivity with The Port of Melbourne.

Construction of the Nolan Group’s new facility is expected to reach completion in late 2022.
