Atterbury has been awarded the contract to develop a new distribution facility for Aramex South Africa in Richmond Park, Milnerton, Cape Town. The new facility will consolidate the company's two existing Cape Town operations into one fit-for-purpose 9,240m2 facility.
Earthworks will begin in June this year and the building will be completed in February 2021. Aramex will commence trading from its new facility in March 2021.
As a popular and growing industrial node, the operating and upcoming facilities at Richmond Park include those of Cape Fruit Coolers, CTM, Mustek, Scoop, ACDC Dynamics, Max on Top, Corex and Sequence Logistics in conjunction with RPP.
The Richmond Corner convenience shopping centre, anchored by Pick and Pay and Woolworths Food, will open in the precinct in April 2020.
The development and long-term lease agreement were awarded to Richmond Park Development Company after a comprehensive request for proposal process managed by Broll, which began mid-2019.
