Williams-Sonoma has completed its first directly leased Australian storage and distribution warehouse at The Horsley Park Estate in western Sydney.

The new facility is conveniently located for easy access to the M4 and M7 motorways via Old Wallgrove Road and is only 40 minutes from the Sydney CBD and Sydney airport.

The Horsley Park Estate is targeting a 5 Star Green Star Design & As Built v1.1 rating from the Green Building Council of Australia and will obtain carbon neutral certification of built form works for the Williams-Sonoma Australia facility. All facilities within the estate feature solar PV systems.

Comprising a 16,755 square metre warehouse, 640 square metre office and 67 car spaces, the Williams-Sonoma warehouse features dedicated truck loading and car park areas, a minimum building height of 11.5-metres at the gutter, racking up to 14.6-metres at the ridge and a 34-metre-wide loading area.

Williams-Sonoma is the first industrial facility to incorporate battery storage and biodiesel back up generation into its clean energy solution.

Frasers Property Industrial general manager for northern region, Ian Barter said the Horsley Park Estate is one of Sydney’s leading industrial precincts, due to its sustainability credentials and strategic location in a region which is experiencing significant investment from the government and private sector.

“We are proud to have delivered state-of-the-art industrial facilities for Williams-Sonoma Australia that will support continued growth and success,” he said.
