 The Awatoto Industrial Park is being developed to satisfy huge owner-occupier and tenant demand driven by strong regional growth and supply shortages.

The park is located in Awatoto, one of Hawke’s Bay’s most well connected and sought-after industrial areas.

The 11.06ha site has a huge road frontage in a prime fringe Napier location.

The experienced developer is investing significantly in high-spec infrastructure to support usage required now and in the future.

Lots can be tailored to requirements and there are high-quality design & build options available.

Multiple advantages

Colliers International Industrial Sales specialists Rob Nankervis and Peter Chrisp say the park offers multiple advantages to potential owner occupiers or tenants.

“The logistical advantages and development potential of this park are huge with its key Napier and Central North Island location, extremely limited development opportunities in the region and solid regional economic growth.”

Chrisp says this is a very rare opportunity to snap up possibly the last freehold industrial opportunity in the Napier area.

“The industrial park would be well suited to any type of industrial activity that wanted to have good access to major transport links throughout the North Island or direct access to the Napier Port for exporting,” he says.

Major businesses operating in the area include Heinz Watties, Turners & Growers, Pan Pac, Delegates, Mr Apple and Whakatu Coldstores.

Currently Hawke’s Bay is experiencing somewhat of an industrial boom through the prosperity that is being generated off the back of the primary sector.

In turn, increasing exports of food products from Napier Port are driving growth in the transport sector, with leading transport companies such as Tomoana Warehousing and NZL increasing their footprint in the region.

Nankervis say that with this current growth in the industrial market as well as Hawke’s Bay’s central North Island location and strong performance in the horticultural, viticultural and agricultural sectors, this opportunity stands to significantly benefit from the region’s future growth.

The lots are for sale or lease by negotiation.
