Business Parks are an important type of employment land that supports a mix of manufacturing, logistics, warehousing, research and development and office functions in the one place. The Employment Lands Development Monitor tracks mid-sized (between 10 and 50 hectares in size) and major business parks (over 50 hectares in size) in Greater Sydney. Large business parks are generally zoned B7 Business Park and differ from traditional commercial office centres as they often include components of similar employment zones reflecting their broader functions.
Monitoring of business parks recognises the growing importance of these locations for job growth and the evolution of some industrial areas towards higher density employment areas. These often combine a mix of manufacturing, logistics, warehousing, research and development and office uses. They also often include retail and service functions. Business Parks are generally purpose built and located away from traditional commercial centres.
The Employment Lands Development Monitor is an annual snapshot taken at a point in time. The results of the ELDM at January 2020 do not take into account any impact of COVID-19 on Business Parks.
