Brightwater industrial complex offers dynamic venue for occupiers

A vacant industrial complex represents an extensive long-term leasing opportunity for businesses requiring a strategic foothold at the top of the South Island.

The complex on 4.6ha (more or less) of Rural Industrial zoned land at 30 Factory Road is primed to support a range of local industries.

Bayleys Nelson Business Sales and Leasing broker Gill Ireland says the sheer scale of the property is a rarity in this location, with established and immediately available infrastructure a boon for businesses seeking a new home.

“The facility comprises a range of building types, including sizeable high-stud warehousing that is well-positioned for dry storage.

“Extensive yards, including a mix of metal, sealed, and grass areas, provide room for manoeuvrability and storage, which may be particularly attractive for an operator with logistical considerations targeting Brightwater as an accessible base with immediate State Highway access.

“Additionally, the potential transfer of water rights and dam shares adds further value, enhancing the site’s capabilities for various industrial applications, which may include reducing water-related costs, operational flexibility, and resource reliability.”

Ms Ireland is marketing the property for lease by negotiation with Bayleys colleague Kaitlyn Turner. Interested parties are invited to explore options to occupy the whole or part of the site. A long-term lease tenure enables tenants to make the most of the facility and grounds.

Buildings for lease total 48,100sq m (more or less) on a fully fenced site with secure controlled access.

Bayleys Nelson Business Sales and Leasing associate Kaitlyn Turner says the property benefits from its easy access to State Highway 6, a major transport route.

“The property provides mobility and industrial access for trucks and tankers on and off the State Highway network, around Factory and River Terrace Roads.

“In the current operating climate, businesses are seeking to create efficiency and minimise unit production costs. The subject property provides a strategic advantage with its diverse range of facilities and prominent location proximate to a key transit route linking the top of the South Island and West Coast onto Christchurch.

“These attributes help to promote efficient supply chain management, with the well-located facility enabling operational coordination that may help businesses reduce lead times, improve responsiveness, and lower transportation costs—all crucial in minimising production expense.

“Also, flexible occupancy options provide adaptability to meet diverse business needs, reflective of current industry conditions and local business demand.”

The surrounding area's occupiers include local construction company Taylors Contracting Co, natural skincare manufacturer Bees Brilliance, Kiwi boat builder DNA Boats, and local food producer Tasman Bay Food Co.

“Potential occupants will find they are in good company surrounded by a range of established Kiwi businesses, with the property presenting a prime opportunity for businesses to expand or establish operations in a well-connected regional location,” Ms Turner says.
