Growthpoint Properties has completed the R44 million first phase of its new development at Mill Road Industrial Park in Cape Town, which includes a 5 000sqm facility for Laser Logistics.
Mill Road Industrial Park is in the established industrial area of Bellville Industria, opposite the well-known Sacks Circle. It is a 40 000sqm storage, warehousing and distribution park development consisting of premium-grade warehouse and office space. It is ideally located near the R300 highway, with easy access to the N1, N2 and R300 highways.
The new Laser Logistics premises enjoys excellent highway visibility. It is fairly specialised compared with most storage and distribution warehouses. Built on a raised platform, it includes numerous roller shutters on opposite sides of the structure to optimise its cross-docking capacity.
Laser Logistics has put its people at the centre of its property strategy, with its new facility including a canteen, kitchen, and cloakroom area for drivers and warehouse staff. It is also brilliantly located for public transport, with the Sarepta passenger rail station being 300 metres away. The custom developed building also includes some 800sqm of offices for operations, administration and management.
A double security perimeter ensures the safety of the facility. The company’s dedicated entrance features its own gatehouse admission in addition to the Mill Road Industrial Park access control.
The park also has full perimeter security fencing, onsite management and 24/7 security guarding.
“Our latest move to Bellville South positions us in a property that will look after us for a number of years. We have moved from a smaller, less sophisticated property to one that is bigger, more sophisticated and probably better located too,” says Phil Hayes, Chairman of Laser Logistics.
With the future in mind, the site includes expansion potential, and there are also future expansion opportunities within the park. Of particular appeal to warehousing and storage businesses, buildings at the park have stacking heights of 12 metres, ample yard space, and modern offices in the secure park. In addition, the park is energy and water efficient, resulting in lower occupation costs.
