Local Businesses Making Moves In Epping

Businesses in Epping are on the move, but not for the reasons that you may think. Epping, conveniently located just 18km North of Melbourne’s CBD, is on the fast track for economic and residential growth.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the City of Whittlesea population is forecast to grow from 160,372 in 2011 to 333,700 in 2036. Epping itself is predicted to expand by over 26% within the same time frame, which is impressive considering there is substantial commercial development within the suburb.

Northpoint Enterprise Park, which is the premier Business Park in Melbourne’s North, has seen an interesting trend emerge from local Epping businesses. They want to move, but not away from Epping, within Epping. The economic growth and development in the area makes it the place they want to stay, but with the evolving development of the suburb these businesses see benefits in repositioning themselves.

 “The last 6-12 months has seen us talking to a lot of local businesses that have grown from humble beginnings and now need larger premises, but are keen to stay within the Epping area. I would estimate that 20% of current land enquiries at Northpoint are coming from local businesses which see the benefit in relocation.

Melbourne’s north is a hive of activity, with a remarkable amount of residential and business growth. I refer to Epping as the ‘Epicentre of Melbourne’s North’, and of course we see Northpoint Enterprise Park as the heart of commercial and industrial development within the area.”

Northpoint Enterprise Park’s Development Director, John Purdey.

Location is a major feature of Northpoint Enterprise Park. Occupying 126 Hectares [312 Acres] on Cooper Street, stretching from the Hume Freeway past Edgars Road to the East, means Northpoint is directly opposite the soon to be opened Melbourne Wholesale Fruit Vegetable and Flower Market. From the day the Markets open it will bring an additional 5,000 jobs to the area. The flow on effect of a development of this magnitude is massive, and we have seen a jostling for positions where businesses can best take advantage of this dramatic influx of people and employment.

The first major retailer to make the move, shifting from their current home in High Street Epping to a high exposure site within Northpoint on Cooper Street is retail giant – Bunnings Warehouse. It is expected that Bunnings will open its doors on Cooper Street in 2015.

“A common theme amongst business that are looking to shift within Epping is the strong desire to stay local. Their businesses have benefiting from the area’s consistent economic growth, which has been a large contributor to their need for expansion. In the older industrial areas of Epping businesses are finding increasing amounts of congestion caused by residential traffic. We have been in negotiations with several businesses located on Miller Street which are now looking to move to a location they feel is more suited to their commercial pursuits.”

The benefits of Northpoint, both for businesses moving into the area for the first time, and for those relocating include:

  • Access to a high quality Industry and Business environment that is the result of a comprehensively master-planned vision, including extensive wet-lands and open-spaces, with wide tree lines streets and boulevards
  • Accessibility for customers, suppliers and their own distribution networks via Cooper Street, now a 6 Lane major arterial road, as well as immediate proximity to the Hume Freeway and Edgars Road
  • Location and proximity to key businesses and amenities within the area including the Melbourne Wholesale Fruit Vegetable and Flower Market, The Northern Hospital and Epping Plaza Shopping Centre.

Northpoint’s attraction extends beyond its location, accessibility and infrastructure. The Estate is backed by the McMullin Group, a leading Melbourne property development firm which gives businesses the opportunity for a flexible approach in their transition.

The team at McMullin Group, in an effort to ensure a strong mix of complementary businesses have found flexibility is key.

“Our goal is to develop strong working relationships with businesses so that we can really understand their current and future needs. As we have a clear ‘Big Picture’ of all the developments and opportunities happening within Northpoint, we are well equipped to customise a parcel of land or create a land and building package that will suit their need both now but more importantly, well into the future.”
Says McMullin Group General Manager, Mr Matthew Benson.

There is the added attraction for businesses of the staged development that is going on at Northpoint. At Northpoint, Land is available for immediate development but can also be reserved within future stages. This creates a flexible time-frame for businesses that may not be prepared for an immediate commitment but are looking to secure a suitable development site in the future.

“We enjoy working with business to obtain an outcome which benefits the strategic direction of their company.” Says John Purdey

Eclipse is building a custom built child care centre within Northpoint Enterprise Park that will  include Long Day Care and Kindergarten Programs. Eclipse’s Managing Director Hugh Ellis comments on why they chose Northpoint Enterprise Park for this new venture in Melbourne’s North:

“Our research has shown that in this vicinity of Epping there is significant demand for childcare.  The majority of centres in Epping are near the ‘old’ part of the suburb and most of these existing centres are already either full or only have limited vacancies.  Introducing Eclipse Child Care at Northpoint Enterprise Park will provide parents with access to top quality child care, in a brand new building all conveniently located near Cooper Street, on their way to the freeway.”



Building, Business and Developments at Northpoint

There is plenty of action in the North of Melbourne, which includes lots of ongoing development at Northpoint Enterprise Park.

Northpoint’s enviable location in the heart of Northern Melbourne’s commercial precinct, means we are benefiting from infrastructure that is continuing to develop and expand around us.

Here at Northpoint, being located directly across the road from the new Market Complex is resulting in interest and development from market stall holders looking for warehousing and office facilities off-site but close by. Also the myriad of businesses that are wanting to locate themselves near the new market facility.

A new and expanded Bunnings Warehouse is coming to Cooper Street in Epping.


Bunnings Warehouse has finalised the purchase of a major block of land within Northpoint Enterprise Park with the intention of relocating their current Epping Store to a new super site. This is a strategic move by Bunnings to accommodate substantial expansion of their Store operations in the Epping Locality.

The new Bunnings site is a high profile site on the corner of Cooper Street and Edgars Road. Cooper Street is established as a major transport corridor to traverse across the growing Northern belt of Melbourne. Currently Cooper Street transports in excess of 48,000 cars per day, with this figure expected to grow to over 60,000 cars per day in the next 6-7 years.

Bunnings’ planned expanded growth in the area is further evidence of the population and business boom that is happening in Melbourne’s north. This development coincides with a string of large, high profile retailers announcing their intentions to either grow or start their presence in the Epping area.

A major example of this is that of recent time Costco has announced that it has chosen its “Northern Home” to be Epping.    The Company is currently seeking Town Planning Approval with a view to opening its new store adjacent to Epping Plaza Regional Shopping Centre later in 2014.

Northpoint Enterprise Park, a 126 hectare Business Park located in the growth corridor of Epping to the north of Melbourne, offers a high caliber gauge of the current state of play for Victoria’s commercial and industrial property development economy.

Northpoint Enterprise Park is a 10 year old, joint-venture between the McMullin Group and Robert Scanlon.  This partnership has noticed a slow-down in recent years, though maybe not the slow-down that you would expect.  Land is still being sold, and properties continue to be developed within the Business Park. The slow-down is really noticeable in the way companies are making their business decisions.

According to McMullin Groups’ Development Director John Purdey “Caution is the overriding emotion in the way people are now approaching business decisions. Due diligence is done and business decision makers

want all details perfect before they will commit. Fortunately with Northpoint this approach and attention-to-detail has always been our focus, so we have been able to continue working with businesses to ensure they are getting the best business outcome.”

The long term development of Northpoint Enterprise Park has been well thought-out and thorough, which has resulted in astute business operators continuing to choose Northpoint Enterprise Park.  This ongoing growth and success, where so many seem to be failing, can be attributed to location and quality.  Northpoint Enterprise Park occupies a prime location at the full diamond interchange of the Hume Freeway and Cooper Street in Epping, granting immediate access for Northpoint occupants to all parts of Australia. This site is directly opposite the developing new Melbourne Fruit and Wholesale Markets and less than 20 km from Melbourne’s CBD. The focus has always been on attracting top quality tenants which build and maintain quality business premises. As a result, there is a strong stable of International and Australian businesses that call Northpoint Enterprise Park home.

As a testament to Northpoint Enterprise Park’s continued growth and development as a successful business hub they are gearing up to release a further 40 hectares which will be Stage 4B, suitable for Retail, Showrooms, Business and Industrial developments and simultaneously Stage 5, which will attract Commercial, Health Care and Light Industrial developments.


New Age at Northpoint

Northpoint Enterprise Park resident New Age Caravans is busily expanding operations, having started construction on their new, modern manufacturing facility. This new development is located alongside New Age Caravan’s current Dealership Showroom on busy Cooper Street, Epping. The new Office/Factory building and expanded facilities for New Age Caravans is in response to their rapidly growing business in Australia’s caravan market. The expansion of New Age Caravans is positive for Northpoint Enterprise Park and the City of Whittlesea with the Company’s employment figures in this location swelling to over 100.


Age Caravan’s Owners Joe and Gabby Barrasso attribute the company’s outstanding growth to a number of factors including; the company’s use of superior manufacturing technologies; having a customer focused approach that includes a high degree of product customisation; creating a modern on-trend product; and having a Showroom located in a high visibility position attracting attention of a lot of passing traffic as well as being easy to access for all current and potential clients.
