New industrial complex to be built
SEVEN new buildings in an industrial site have been earmarked for construction at a vacant lot at Raceview.
Planning and Development Committee chairman Paul Tully said the new buildings would be part of a complex planned for 10-12 Edwards St, Raceview.
“The vacant lot is 4407sq m and developers plan to build seven individual tenancies with floor spaces varying in size from 217sq m to 446sq m,” he said.
“Each building will be constructed of tilt-up concrete with a metal roof and positioned along the side and rear boundaries of the site, with parking at the front.
All will be two storeys with office and mezzanine areas, except the main buildings which will be one storey only.
“There will be parking for 24 cars, four motorcycles, two trucks and bicycles, and a service bay.”
Division 9 Councillor Sheila Ireland said the development would bring new industrial business to Raceview.
“It’s great to see new industrial space being built in Raceview and offering modern facilities to businesses that may be interested in setting themselves up here,” she said.
