Intaprop is developing a R600 million head office for leading direct pharmaceutical distributor UTi Pharma at Meadowview Business Estate in Linbro Park.
At build-out, Meadowview will be able to accommodate 250 000 square metres of development, making it a significant and high-profile commercial precinct in northern Johannesburg, says Intaprop director Hugo Stroud.
He says they will develop in phases on a demand-led basis.
Land is zoned for industrial warehousing and office uses, with opportunities for development ranging from 5 000 square metres to 20 000 square metres.
Larger parcels of land are however available on request, as in the case of UTi Pharma which will develop its state-of-the-art facility on 61 000 square metres of land.
Stroud explains that the project includes 6 000 square metres of offices and a 28 000 square metres warehouse.
“The new warehouse will increase UTi Pharma’s distribution capacity threefold, making use of automated picking technologies, operating in conjunction with a Highbay warehouse.”
For employees and visitors, there will be 400 parking bays and more than half will be covered.
Meadowview Business Estate is designed to meet the needs of businesses in high value logistics and distribution, FMCG, pharmaceutical manufacturing, the high-tech sector and call centres.
Meadowview is located close to the Greenstone retail precinct.
Some of Intaprop’s developments include the 47 000 square metre Vaal Mall in Vanderbijlpark, 30 000 square metre Willowbridge Centre in Cape Town and corporate head offices for Kagiso, Microsoft, Tiger Brands and Standard Bank.
