Leading Childcare Centre Coming to Northpoint Enterprise Park

Scheduled  to open for enrolments at the end of 2014 is the newest business to join Northpoint Enterprise Park – Eclipse Early Education Group.

Eclipse is a leading child care provider currently undertaking rapid expansion throughout Melbourne. There are 6 Eclipse centres already servicing hundreds of families throughout Melbourne and they are expecting to add a further 7 centres to their Group by the end of 2015. This impressive growth is underpinned by their philosophy and success delivery of a committed, professional and friendly team of educators who welcome all families and children to their service. Eclipse aims to make the experience of their families educational and fun. Staff endeavor to develop strong relationships and bonds with the children and families in their care.

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.”

The Melbourne Wholesale Fruit & Vegetable Markets Complex is looking on-track to open in 2015. 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_logo1

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.

ACTIVITY ON THE RISE IN MELBOURNE’S NORTH

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.

Retail lift for Epping Centre

Legislative changes are helping bulky goods outlets, writes Philip Hopkins.

A BULKY goods centre to be built at Epping in Melbourne’s north has been given a fillip by recent Baillieu government planning changes.

Private developer, the McMullin Group, will build the centre, dubbed Epping House N Home, in the Northpoint Enterprise Park, a 120-hectare estate in the commercial and industrial heart of the City of Whittlesea.

McMullin’s development director John Purdey said the centre would tap into Whittlesea’s forecast population growth of 10,000 new residents per year for the next six years. Epping’s catchment is now estimated at 209,000.

The centre will be located on the corner of Edgars Road and Cooper Street, about 1.5 kilometres from High Street and Epping Plaza.

The establishment of the bulky goods centre was given a shot in the arm by amendments to retailing legislation by Minister for Planning Matthew Guy.

The policy changes revised the bulky goods definition, broadening the scope of retail activities that could be included in such centres. Further, the previously restrictive minimum floor space requirement of 1000 square metres was dissolved.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s director of retail leasing Jaycen Willox said the move brought flexibility and clarity to both current and prospective tenants. ”Restrictive minimum floor space requirements under the previous scheme were thwarting the capacity of growth within the bulky goods sector,” he said.

Broadening the tenant sizes and products would boost demand for space in bulky goods centres and underpin confidence in the sector. He said retail

outlets now eligible included recreational and sporting goods, baby and children goods and homewares.

Mr Purdey said the changes had shifted the balance within the broader retail spectrum, allowing bulky goods to compete in areas from which they were traditionally excluded.

The 30,000-square-metre Epping bulky goods centre, which is expected to open late next year, will be built in two stages. The first stage will be an anchor tenant of 14,000 square metres, with 12-to-15 small tenants taking up the remaining space. The centre will be valued at more than $35 million.

The McMullin Group previously developed bulky goods centres in Chirnside Park and Thomastown. The Epping site was designed by Leffler Simes Architects, who designed the Springvale Homemaker Centre. The leasing is being done by CBRE.

Mr Purdey was upbeat about the centre’s future, saying there were more than 42,000 traffic movements passing the Cooper Street frontage daily. This was expected to grow to 58,000 by 2021.

A consultant’s report found that residents would spend $2416 per person on bulky goods in 2014-15, the centre’s first full year of trading.

The bulky goods centre will join a range of tenants at Northpoint that include an automotive parts supplier to Ford Australia, Sumitomo Australia; Mexican food company Gruma Asia & Oceania; and US tool company Stanley Black & Decker. Construction of Northpoint began in 2000 and is half complete.
