SEKO Logistics commits to 10 year pre-lease agreement at The YARDS in Kemps Creek. 


Joint venture developers Frasers Property Industrial and Aware Real Estate have secured SEKO Logistics, a global supply chain solutions specialist, on a 10-year lease at The YARDS, a Premium industrial Estate at Kemps Creek in New South Wales.


The built-to-suit 30,581 square metre facility will be SEKO Logistics’ new Australian headquarters as the company consolidates its two existing facilities.


Construction has just commenced by builder CIP Constructions. Once complete, the new facility will comprise around 30,000 square metres of modern warehouse space with 18,860 square metres of storage areas and two offices and a dock office totalling 581 square metres. The design features full drive around truck access, 13 flush loading docks and 10 recessed loading docks to support business growth, ease of access and worker safety.


The YARDS recently achieved Australia’s first and highest possible 6 Star Green Star Communities rating for an industrial estate from the Green Building Council of Australia. The building is targeting a 6 Star Green Star Design & As-Built v1.3 rating and will include a minimum 100kW solar power system (with capacity for upgrade), 60,000L rainwater tank, two electric vehicle charging bays, secure bicycle parks and end-of-trip facilities for staff.  More than 8,000 native plants have also been included in the facility’s surrounding landscaping.

It’s exciting to see our vision come to life as we attract more global blue-chip brands and businesses, and we’re honoured to partner with our customers to help drive innovation, efficiency and business growth.”


“This agreement takes our pre-commitment at The YARDS to over 70 per cent and we look forward to welcoming more customers over the coming months.”


Michelle McNally, Chief Executive Officer Aware Real Estate said:

“It’s pleasing to see yet another quality global business join the community we’re creating at The YARDS, and exciting to see the momentum we’ve created as the estate progresses.


“This project aligns with Aware Real Estate’s focused investment strategy to target locations around existing and new infrastructure that will drive long-term demand underpinning capital growth, and we look forward to continuing our involvement with this premium estate over the coming years.”


Paul Lilliss, General Manager at SEKO Logistics said:

“The YARDS was a natural choice for our new headquarters and we are excited to be joining other leading businesses within the new community. With its high standards of innovation, technology and sustainability, as well as the strategic location on the backbone of Australia’s east coast delivery zone, we’re confident this new facility will help us meet our business growth targets and continue attracting top talent.


We look forward to working with the team to progress our plans, commence construction and consolidate our operations across Sydney.”

On completion, The YARDS will be home to more than 13 state-of-the-art facilities of approximately 284,000 square metres across 77 hectares. Precinct-wide sustainability initiatives include integrated parks, walking tracks and cycle paths, extensive solar installations, water harvesting and recycling, and full electrification to facilitate a seamless transition to fossil fuel-free energy sources in the future.


Strategically located on the corner of Mamre Road and the future Southern Link Road in the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, its location offers convenient access to key transport infrastructure, including the M4 and M7 motorways, and sits within Greater Western Sydney’s highly sought-after industrial zone.
