BSR Group MD and CEO, Graeme Cunningham, said Brisbane Airport was a “strategic choice” for the group.
“The size of the new development will allow us to create efficiencies across our business, not only by having one property but also giving us oversight of our supply chain.
“With our retailers’ sales growing year on year, the scale of the Brisbane Airport industrial precinct also provides us with the opportunity to expand in the future.”
Martin Ryan, BAC executive GM commercial, said the Da Vinci precinct was “developing rapidly” due to strong demand for premium development sites.
“It is a hive of activity at Brisbane Airport, with leading Australian and global companies choosing to base their operations here due to the excellent onsite amenity, unparalleled connectivity, and transport links.”
The retailer will join existing tenants such as DHL, the Virgin Australia Training Centre, Qantas Flight Training Centre, Aviation Australia and Mitsubishi.
The new developments are expected to be completed early this year.
