Strong demand for spots in Peel Business Park’s planned Agri-Innovation Precinct

Demand is booming for space in the planned Agri-Innovation Precinct within the Peel Business Park (PBP) currently being developed at Nambeelup, Western Australia. The AI Precinct, slated to be one of the first developments in the new business park, will have genetics and food security research programs at its core.

According to Murray Shire’s manager for investment attraction, David Arkwright, the AI Precinct will consist of three buildings, provisionally named the innovation centre; research and development (R&D) centre; and production and storage centre.

The concept of the Agri-Innovation Precinct was developed in collaboration with researchers at Perth’s Murdoch University, one of three organisations already slated to lease space when the Precinct opens in 2022.

It is expected that the new AI Precinct will house Murdoch-led science laboratories, facilities for food product research and small-batch production, business incubator facilities, cold and dry storage facilities, co-working spaces and offices, meeting rooms, public presentation areas, even a café.

Preliminary interest has been so strong that the developers are looking to allocate more sites in future land releases to enable expansion of the Precinct.
