Major new tenant for Brisbane’s fast growing Airport City
The list of tenants at Brisbane Airport (BNE) will soon include the world’s largest distributor for home-brewing brands such as Still Spirits, Mangrove Jacks, and Grainfather following the sod-turning ceremony for a new facility at the gateway.
Bevie’s 2,600sqm state-of-the-art unit will be located within a Warehousing Industrial Duplex Facility on Grevillea Place in Export Park.
Martin Ryan, Brisbane Airport Corporation’s executive general manager for commercial, joined John van Rensburg, CEO and president of Bevie, and more than 20 Bevie delegates on site to mark the commencement of construction.
Van Rensburg noted that a number of Bevie delegates were able to take advantage of the trans-Tasman travel bubble and fly in from New Zealand for the event.
He enthused: “We are looking forward to calling Brisbane Airport home to our soon-to-be constructed, custom facility, and I cannot wait to see the look on everyone’s face when we move in at the end of the year.
“Our existing facility in Banyo has served us well but providing our team with a modern home will allow us to serve our retail partners across Australia more efficiently.”
Ryan said the addition of Bevie is a perfect example of BNE’s evolving Airport City and our ability to attract non-aviation related businesses to Brisbane Airport.
“Bevie’s arrival is very exciting for all of us at Brisbane Airport as it diversifies the mix of industries we have here on site,” noted Ryan.
“We have a number of exciting projects underway and a property assets portfolio exceeding A$1.7 billion. Bevie is a part of BNE’s exciting future, which includes the opening of the BNE Auto Mall in 2024.”
The remaining portion of Brisbane Airport’s new Warehousing Industrial Duplex Facility is a 1,900sqm site that is still available for lease.
“These two units will complete the last piece of real estate available on Grevillea Place, but we have plenty more sites available for everyone’s needs,” added Ryan.
The project is generating more than 30 construction jobs and is expected to be completed by December 2021.
