THE O.R. TAMBO AIRPORT AND SURROUNDING AREA IS SOUTH AFRICA’S MOST IMPORTANT INDUSTRIAL WAREHOUSING, LOGISTICS AND COMMERCIAL MARKETS, with extremely low vacancy and high levels of absorption. Market conditions in the area are strong, placing upward pressure on rental rates and driving new speculative development in the various submarket areas.
The Kempton Park and Boksburg areas represents one of the fastest growing and most active submarket areas in Johannesburg. A lack of availability of land in the surrounding submarkets, together with increased demand for newer facilities, has driven significant levels of new speculative and leased development in these areas which has become a major centre for warehousing, logistics, commercial and retail users over the past several years. Large new developments are planned for development in the area.
These area’s are situated close to large available labour pools, transit and highway accessibility, proximity to surrounding urban markets and centres, as well as the O.R. Tambo International Airport, will continue to bolster demand from industrial warehousing and logistics users for the foreseeable future.
The Airport area, together with the newer development nodes, are a major centre for industrial, warehousing and distribution, with a total inventory of well over 1 million sqm. The Pomona and Plumbago nodes have attracted numerous major multinational corporations such as DSV, DHL, DB Schenker, Kuehne & Nagel, and many others to establish distribution and warehousing facilities in the area. Prominent SA corporations such as Tiger Brands, Takealot and Imperial have also established distribution and warehousing facilities in the area. The larger Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS) , have focussed development efforts for both national and international clients, whose own research has identified these area’s as prime position for an array of property function as a result of the prime locations.
Our area of focus is strategically located around the O.R. Tambo International Airport and towards and Pretoria along the R21 freeway – one of the busiest roads in Gauteng. Access to these area’s are easily obtained off the R21. In close proximity to these rapidly developing area’s are residential nodes such as Glen Marais, Kempton Park and Birchleigh and industrial sub-nodes such as Isando, Spartan and Jetpark.
The node also enjoys easy access to the Rhodesfield and O.R. Tambo Gautrain stations, which were major catalysts for new developments in the Airport area since 2010.
There have been a number of road infrastructure improvement projects in the node in recent times which include upgrades to Pomona, Maple and Constantia Roads. Currently, Atlas Road, just off the R21, is being upgraded. Meanwhile, development has been accompanied by an upgrade to the R23 /Serengeti Boulevard. The R23, which initially consisted of two lanes, will be widened to at least four lanes to cater to increased traffic volumes brought on by developments in the area.
With a median age of 29 years, Johannesburg has one of the youngest populations in SA, and it is consistently ranked as one of South Africa’s fastest growing area’s.
Plumbago is approximately 11 Km from Africa’s largest and busiest airport, O.R. Tambo International Airport, which handles over twenty-one million passengers per year. More than 30 airlines operate approximately 220,000 flights per year across international, regional and domestic flights.
National rail lines serve Johannesburg. As an example Park Station, the largest railway station in Africa, offering express national and international truck trailer services between a number of towns and cities linked to the extensive SA rail networks.
Our operational area’s have access to the Indian Ocean via the Port of Durban 580 kms to the south (via the N1 highway) and 500 kms to Maputo (Mozambique) to the west via the N4 highway, facilitating easy access to major international markets in Europe and Asia and the rest of Africa.
