Exciting, much needed Industrial Development in Vanderbijlpark

The huge demand for and the shortage of high quality industrial land in the Vaal Triangle combined with the rapid expansion of industrial activity in the area led to the decision by local landowner, Jacques de Norre together with his project team, managed by George Burlow, to develop the Vaal Industrial Park. RE/MAX, represented by Niekie Miller and Annelie Havenga, deal with the marketing of the development under a sole mandate.


This industrial development is situated in Vanderbijlpark, the heart of the industrial area of Sedibeng (Vaal Triangle).  Vanderbijlpark is centrally located between Vereeniging and Sasolburg with Meyerton not far away.  The location of the development allows easy access to the N1 and R59 highways to Johannesburg and Bloemfontein.


Industries in Vanderbijlpark include major construction companies e.g. Grinaker LTA, engineering companies e.g. Sarco and national and international manufacturing companies like Afrisam and Afrox.  Local engineering and construction companies service Arcelor-Mittal, Sasol, Natref, national power stations and the mining industry.    The development is also surrounded by many national and international raw material suppliers.


The development offers a huge benefit to investors and industries being zoned as “Industrial 2”, allowing 85% coverage and a building height of three storeys.  The larger stands have railway access.


The size of the total development is 239 000 m2 divided into 31 stands.  The variation in stand sizes from 2 964 m2 to 17 689 m2 makes it possible for a variety of investors and industries to invest in the development.


The introductory price of the fully serviced stands is R350/m2 excluding VAT, which offers developers and investors a saving of 40% to 50% when compared to industrial developments in the Johannesburg area.  The significant savings in development and building costs contributes to the attractiveness of this development.


The largest stand in the development has been sold to a national company.
