The strategic location and first-class facilities at LandCorp's Crossroads Industrial estate has attracted the attention of 7-Eleven, with a new fuel store set to open at the Forrestdale estate this year.
7-Eleven General Manager Corporate Affairs Clayton Ford said the estate was an ideal location as part of the brand's expansion in the Western Australia market.
"What we look for in a new location is a quality site with good traffic flow and consumer footfall, in an area where we can service the needs of the local community," Mr Ford said.
"Crossroads Industrial Estate provides all of that and we're really proud to be investing in a new store that will benefit workers and visitors as well as residents of Forrestdale and surrounding areas."
Construction is already underway to build the store, which will be located in a prime position at the entrance to the estate. The new facility, which is expected to open by mid-2017, marks continued growth for company.
"Western Australia is a key growth area for 7-Eleven following our launch into this market in 2014," Mr Ford said.
"We've received a positive response from local consumers at our nearby stores at Byford South and Canning Vale that opened last year, and we recognised a gap in the market for our services within the Forrestdale area.
"Our new store will provide customers with our full convenience offer, including high quality Mobil fuels, our market leading fresh food and coffee, snacks, drinks, grocery top up items, gift cards and convenient services such as an ATM and Moneygram money transfers."
The 41-hectare Crossroads Industrial estate is part of the Forrestdale Business Park West, located within the State's rapidly growing South East corridor, and is one of more than 30 industrial projects LandCorp is delivering across the State.
LandCorp chief executive Frank Marra said the estate's close proximity to major transport routes had proven to be major drawcard for businesses, including 7-Eleven.
"We're delighted to welcome 7-Eleven whose establishment at Crossroads will support many businesses and residents in this growing region," Mr Marra said.
"With stage one sold out and more than 50 per cent of stage two also sold, businesses have a limited opportunity to secure the remaining six light industry lots in the estate.
LandCorp's industrial projects help to promote trade and employment opportunities throughout our State, and enable people to work close to where they live.
The remaining six light industrial lots range in size between 2,000sqm to 3,593sqm are titled and priced from $573,000 excluding GST.
7-Eleven will join other businesses operating in the estate including Washworks car wash, Crossroads Mechanical Repco service station, TQ Stone Products, Australian Plate Heat Exchanger Services and Earn the Burn fitness gym.
Lots at the estate are fully serviced with power, water, sewer and gas connections available, together with broadband network access and are suitable for a wide range of uses.
