Warehousing and logistics business Silk Contract has taken up a four-hectare lot at the Roe Highway Logistics Park, with plans to construct a 21,000 square metre warehouse.

Silk Contract Logistics (Silk) has committed to a long-term lease at Roe Highway Logistics Park in Perth, Western Australia. Silk is the latest tenant to sign up and will join Northline, BP, Brady Corporation, Expro among others.

Located in Perth’s eastern industrial core, Roe Highway Logistics Park is a 56-hectare development strategically located adjacent to the State Government’s Kenwick Rail Freight Facility.

The logistics park was launched in late February and has experienced strong demand with over 50% of the site already committed or under negotiation.

Silk has taken up a 4-hectare lot at the industrial park with a custom-built 21,000 square metre warehouse to be constructed. Occupancy is scheduled for early 2020.

Linc Property’s Judd Dyer said that the recent Silk commitment continues to reinforce the demand for land, logistics and warehousing solutions with existing and future tenants citing the combination of RAV 7 access to major arterial freight routes, proximity to freight rail, site flexibility and the core location as a key differentiator.

Roe Highway Logistics Park has been developed by a consortium comprising WA’s largest private industrial land developer Linc Property, warehouse leasing specialist Gibb Group and Minderoo Group.

“In addition to the best access of any industrial site in Perth, we are able to offer tenants and buyers flexible lot sizes with custom-designed warehouses to suit their individual needs,” Judd said.
