The precinct includes the existing 14.7 ha Chifley Business Park, DFO (Direct FactoryOutlet) and Kingston Central Plaza shopping centres, plus the recently completed Costco. Theprecinct benefits from over 3,000 employees on-site and an estimated one million people in theestate catchment area.

Costco opened their eighth Australian store at Moorabbin Airport in November 2015. Located offBoundary Road, the development was facilitated by a 59,395 sqm serviced land parcel providedby Goodman.

CBRE Head of Large Format Retail, Mr Chris Parry said: 'The encouraging trading resultsdemonstrated by Costco at this location has led to strong interest from a number of internationalretailers looking to establish a foothold in Melbourne, and more importantly, in this location.

Spectrum Brands Holding ('Spectrum Brands'), distributor of household brands includingRemington, Russell Hobbs and Armour All, has committed to a 30,668 sqm purpose-builtwarehouse and office facility, with a ten year lease term. The new facility will operate as theirAustralasian Head Office and storage and distribution centre.

As our business has grown, Goodman has demonstrated flexibilityand worked closely with us to meet our requirements. We look forward to continuing thispartnership.'

Also at Chifley Business Park, an 11,445 sqm warehouse and office development for McCormickFoods Australia and a 1,890 sqm warehouse and office facility for Netra Hospitality and Hygienewith eight and ten year lease terms respectively, have been completed.
