Newly Opened Business District in Wacol Boasts Lifestyle Amenities and Green Spaces

Metroplex Westgate, the newest business district in Brisbane, has officially opened in Wacol with its first tenant, equipment pooling provider Loscam. But once the business complex is completed, it will provide amenities and green spaces not typical of industrial parks.

Loscam is occupying a 4,075-sq-m purpose-built warehouse in Metroplex Westgate under a 15-year lease term. With this, Loscam has become the first company to conduct operations at the new business complex, which aims to change Queensland’s industrial development landscape.

Metroplex Westgate will ultimately be home to several industrial, commercial and retail businesses. Designers have envisioned the business complex as a mixed-use modern workplace where white collar, blue collar and lab coat can work side by side in one clean and green environment.

Loscam’s warehouse is located at Metroplex South, which will soon see additional tenants such as building products company ARDEX Australia; high-end Italian roller door maker BMP Australia; a fuel retailing company; and a commercial food services company.

Metroplex Westgate is currently undergoing a $17.5-million construction work as it takes form. Soon to rise are Metroplex West, Metroplex East and ETRO. Metroplex West is currently being built and will host a 3,937-sq-m high-end office space and showroom for Volvo Group.

Strategic Location

Loscam State Manager Irene Radford expressed excitement in moving into the new space, considering the logistic advantages of the business complex.

Metroplex Westgate not only meets the demands of tenants in terms of purpose-built facilities, but its location makes it convenient for businesses to move products through supply chains.

The business complex gives companies direct access to the Ipswich, Centenary and Logan Motorways. It is approximately 25 minutes away from Brisbane CBD and about 35 minutes from the airport via Legacy Way.

Lifestyle Amenities

Metroplex Westgate will be different from existing industrial parks, which are typically devoid of amenities and design.

The Metroplex East retail and commercial services precinct, as well as the ETRO precinct, will provide staff and visitors with a number of lifestyle amenities such as shops, child care centre, restaurants, pharmacy, gym and medical centre.

Business workers and visitors can enjoy the recreational parks and picturesque public open spaces in the business hub. Metroplex Westgate will also have bus connections to Wacol and Richlands railway stations.
