New business cleaning up at Crossroads Industrial

03 Mar 2016

The impressive location, first-class facilities and attractive pricing on offer in LandCorp's Crossroads Industrial estate ticked all the right boxes for Simon Dunn, the proprietor of Wash Works, the first business to open in the popular development.

Mr Dunn snapped up his block at Crossroads Industrial, the first major development in the Forrestdale Business Park West, saying he was impressed with the potential of the site as well as the incredible value offered when buying land.

"Crossroads really had everything I was looking for when it came to choosing a site for my new business Wash Works," Mr Dunn said.

"Wash Works will provide automatic and manual wash bays for both cars and larger vehicles, including trucks, boats and caravans, as well as two dog washes. We are providing the latest car wash technology at our 24 hour facility, including a touch free automatic wash bay and recycling water through a separation and filtration system.

"Our customers will come from the nearby industrial and residential areas, as well as further afield, and we will also benefit from passing trade thanks to the busy Ranford Road.

"Also, Crossroads' very attractive price per square metre made my decision to buy here an easy one and I put an offer in for the land as soon as it was released."

LandCorp chief executive Frank Marra said it was exciting to see the next phase of activity at Crossroads Industrial unfold following strong sales in the development.

"There is only two light industrial lots remaining in Stage 1 and only two service industry lots and six light industrial lots available in Stage 2 at Crossroads Industrial," Mr Marra said.

"The development has been very popular with businesses taking advantage of its strategic location along Perth's rapidly growing South East corridor next to the Tonkin Highway, and only minutes to Canning Vale, Perth Airport and the Kewdale Freight Terminal.

With the State Government recently announcing the first construction contract for the NorthLink WA project, Tonkin Highway will continue to be a vital link for traffic movement by providing stronger links from the estate to the Perth arterial network and north west WA.

"Wash Works is the first of many enterprises to open for business and I wish Mr Dunn every success."

Mr Dunn was so impressed with his experiences buying in Crossroads Industrial that he is currently looking at other LandCorp developments which may be suitable sites for his business expansion.

"It was a very easy process and I would be happy to do it again," he said.

The estate has been very popular with both owner occupiers and developers and a number of the sold Stage 1 lots have commenced construction.

Commercial builder Michael Taddei from Prada Construction, has purchased three lots within the estate and is nearing completion on his first build, Lot 220, which comprises three office warehouse units.

"The main reasons I have invested in Crossroads Industrial is due to the location and excellent road linkages with Tonkin Highway, Ranford Road and Anstey Road providing great access to the estate," Mr Taddei said.

"Also, the prices are very attractive and I have a lot of confidence in LandCorp as they always produce a quality estate."

All lots in Crossroads Industrial are fully serviced with connections to power, water, sewage and the broadband network as well as the rare provision of reticulated gas connections throughout the entire development.
