JT Ross responds to corporate logistics demand with Plumbago Business Park

  • 21 February 2013

New 25 hectare Plumbago Business Park development planned alongside the R21 between Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Plumbago Business Park is fast emerging as the premier business park on the Gauteng East Rand node positioned just 5km away from O.R.Tambo International.

Currently under development within the Ekurhuleni Aerotropolis area, the location has been affirmed as a destination of choice for corporate logistics companies. With convenient access to the upgraded R21, and adjacent to Pomona, Plumbago Business Park is located only 5km north and 5 minutes driving time from O.R.Tambo international airport. It has excellent exposure to the adjoining R21, allowing corporate branding opportunities to park tenants.

Plumbago Business Park is developed and owned by J.T. Ross, one of South Africa’s most established development and property entities, who celebrate their 110 year anniversary this year and bring solid experience combined with a forward thinking approach to the development.

“The park is specifically designed to cater for logistics, freight forwarding, and light industrial corporate companies who seek to strategically locate their business and capitalize on the Park’s fantastic exposure and access” says J.T. Ross development director Graeme Green.

A modern gatehouse designed to accommodate large commercial vehicles will ensure that access and egress from the park is easy flowing and convenient for visitors and staff alike. The gatehouse also accommodates a security control room from where the secured perimeter of the park and the gatehouse area will be monitored on a 24 hour basis.

To date corporate companies, notably Jonsson Workwear, Blue Sky Logistics and John Deere, have elected to relocate their National Distribution Centre’s to Plumbago Business Park. Construction of these facilities has already commenced and should be completed for occupation during the 3rd quarter of 2012.

With a guaranteed power supply, a number of sites of differing sizes remain to be developed. These sites can be consolidated or subdivided to allow for purpose built premises to suit tenants’ individual requirements ranging from 1500m² to 25 000m². An architectural and landscaping code will further enhance the locations value for tenants.

Understanding modern distribution needs for communication, the developers have also made provision for both Telkom and private fibre optic lines within the park.
