Morris Corporation moves to the Freeway Office Park
March 15, 2012
Morris Corporation, one of the world’s largest catering companies, is moving to OPD’s newest development, Freeway Office Park at Eight Mile Plains.
Robert McVicker of Freeway Property Holdings Pty Ltd has acquired a purpose-built office building of around 3000 sq m, which is now under construction, in the Freeway Office Park, in a deal negotiated by Trevor Weinert of Colliers International and Steve Parker of Parker Property Consultancy.
Morris Corporation has subsequently signed a 10-year lease for 1500 sq m of commercial office space within this building. Rents in the park are $385 sq m net.
Situated at 2728 Logan Road and bordering the Pacific Motorway, Freeway Office Park offers over 15,000 sq m of premium commercial office space, more than 500 car parking bays and an onsite café.
In October last year Motor Transport Association Queensland was the first tenant to move into Freeway Office Park. Since then, more than 10,000 sq m of office accommodation has been sold or leased in the development.
Mr Weinert and Mr Parker said OPD’s successful formula in providing office buildings for a long list of owner occupiers and tenants, which include MTAQ, BlueCare, Healthscope, Allied Gold, Fulton Hogan, Gloria Jeans, Mazda, St Jude Medical, Samsung and Raytheon, would accommodate the growing Morris Corporation’s specific needs.
“After a lengthy period of trying to find suitable accommodation, once Morris Corporation had a look at Freeway Office Park it was an easy decision,” said Mr Weinert.
Robert McVicker, also the founder of Morris Corporation, said OPD’s office park offers Morris Corporation everything it needs.
“Accessibility, great car parking allowances, the standard of accommodation and the park’s open and natural feel are the main reasons we decided to go with Freeway,” he said.
Buildings cover less than 35 per cent of Freeways extensively landscaped site, which contains over 2000 trees and a bridged natural walkway.
Bill Henderson, owner of OPD, said owners and tenants like Morris Corporation were moving to the park for many reasons.
“Freeway is similar to our other office parks,” he said. “Many businesses find the location ideal, with great highway access to the whole of South East Queensland.
“Our clients typically require more car parking spaces than are available elsewhere, and we constantly get feedback from employers and employees alike that they genuinely enjoy working in modern buildings, in a natural park setting.”
Freeway Office Park has buildings available now, for sale and for lease.
