Global Retailer Uniqlo Joins Charter Hall’s Newest Logistics Hub In Melbourne’s West
March 12, 2020 — Charter Hall Prime Industrial Fund (CPIF) has secured a 46,000sqm pre-lease to Uniqlo Australia on a 10-year term commencing in early 2021, within the 60 hectares Midwest Logistics Hub in Truganina, Melbourne.
Mr Andrew Simons, Charter Hall’s Head of Development, Industrial & Logistics, said “This pre-lease to Uniqlo further reinforces the changing nature of retail supply chains with the commitment of Fastline Retailing (the owner of Uniqlo), a global leader in the retail industry, to establish their own facility to manage both their existing national store network and their expanding ecommerce business. The facility will consolidate their operations into one purpose-built facility featuring cross dock operations with a super awning, 14.6 metre warehouse clearance height and container rated hardstand.”
Mr Richard Mason, CPIF Fund Manager, said “CPIF is extremely pleased with the early leasing success of the Midwest Logistics Hub, with over 50 per cent of the estate now committed, reflecting that the estate is the preferred location for national distribution centres due to its proximity to the port and customers and the area’s large investment in road infrastructure.”
