In another significant milestone for the ongoing development of the Brisbane Markets site, Brisbane Markets Limited (BML) has announced the construction of a new warehouse, Building H1.
The $23.2 million, 5,987 m2 warehouse will be constructed at South Gate West, with the site handed over to developers this month and construction to commence in earnest in January 2022.
BML Chair, Anthony Kelly, welcomed the announcement saying the development showed the ability of BML to attract high-calibre developments in line with the site’s Master Plan.
“Brisbane Markets is Australia’s third largest Central Market, Queensland’s largest fruit and vegetable trading hub and it is fast becoming noted on the international stage for its state-of-the art warehousing and distribution facilities,” Mr Kelly said.
“This new development reflects BML’s commitment to industry engagement and our concentrated maintenance and development strategy since the horticulture industry took ownership of the site in 2002.”
The tenant of the warehouse will be the entity that will be formed following the merging of the two very successful secondary wholesaling businesses, Fruitlink and Suncoast Fresh.
The construction works are due to be completed by the end of December 2022.
