Today an exciting new pillar has been added to the Gold Coast economy

THE former Darlington Park Raceway at Yatala is being transformed into a massive ­industrial hub which will pump $1 billion into the Gold Coast economy.

The 127ha Empire Industrial Estate being launched today is the largest industrial project on the Gold Coast and one of the largest in Queensland.
The estate will ultimately comprise about 250 buildings and provide up to 5000 much-needed new jobs.

The project, to be rolled out over the next decade, will unlock an enormous opportunity for a raft of major commercial and industrial operators who are already lining up to open their national headquarters in the precinct.

Managing director Tony Stephens said the launch of the massive estate was the realisation of a dream the company has had since the early 1980s when his father, Tony, bought the site.

“The Gold Coast is largely known for its tourism sector, the theme parks, the Hinterland and highrises but our economy is much more diverse than that.
“The Empire Industrial Estate is a prime example of what our city’s potential really is.”

He said the estate’s strategic location close to the M1 motorway between the Gold Coast and Brisbane was ideal for attracting businesses nationally. More from the original Gold Coast Bulletin article HERE.
