Demand for Melbourne industrial land remains unsatisfied. Land prices have continued to rise for all sizes and locations, notably among >10,000 sqm lots where prices have increased 35% year-on-year. Put simply, Melbourne currently has 21,000ha of industrial land and some 7,000ha in reserve. The current land services circa 5 million people – there is clearly not enough in reserve to service the next 5 million people.
