Industrial property giant Goodman Group has expanded its exposure with the online retail behemoth Amazon after signing a lease at the $1.5 billion Oakdale West industrial park in Sydney’s west, jointly owned with Brickworks.
Amazon will take out close to 200,000 square metres of space over a 20-year lease in what will be a high-tech robotic distribution centre. It will be the first multi-level warehouse constructed in the country.
The site, around the same land size as Taronga Zoo or 22 rugby fields, will be home to about 11 million items. CBRE industrial & logistics occupier and leasing teams advised Amazon and Goodman.
Oakdale West is part of the wider Oakdale Industrial Estate, which is close to Sydney’s second airport in the west and adds to the lease by Amazon at the Goodman site at Moorebank in South Sydney and a new warehouse in Brisbane.
