A major medical services provider is the latest business to stake a claim in Gold Coast Airport’s growing commercial precinct.
Queensland X-ray has taken a long-term lease with options for more than 550sq m of ground floor space in Airport Central fronting Gold Coast Highway at Bilinga.
The practice will offer MRI, CT, ultrasound, x-ray and women’s imaging services and is positioned close to John Flynn Private Hospital, Tweed Heads Public Hospital and other local medical providers.
Queensland X-ray Chief Radiographer Andrew Dunglison said the southern Gold Coast had long been part of the organisation’s growth plans.
“This location works well for us, close to two major hospitals and servicing both the southern Gold Coast and northern New South Wales regions,” he said.
“Specifically, Airport Central offers substantial free carparking for staff and patients, and is easily accessed from the Gold Coast Highway.”
The building is owned and managed by Queensland Airports Limited (QAL), operator of Gold Coast Airport.
QAL Executive General Manager Property and Infrastructure Carl Bruhn said following Queensland Xray’s lease, the precinct was 95 per cent occupied.
“A diverse commercial mix is emerging in the precinct, with this practice joining a technology distribution company and child care centre, which are currently fitting out their premises,” he said.
“The appeal of the location is different for all of them – some like the proximity to the airport, so their interstate clients can easily organise a day trip to their office, others want to be close to the university, or located on the southern end and John Flynn Hospital was a positive for this client.
“That has resulted in a great tenant mix.”
Airport Central is also occupied by Queensland Airports Limited and Gold Coast Airport’s management offices, and sits on 1.78 hectares, with more than 230 carparks. Tenants include Edge Early Learning, InTechnology Distribution, Volcom, and Freedom Fuel.
Limited office and retail space remains at Airport Central. About 1,014sq m of a-grade office space is also available in the nearby Ivy Pearce building, which has the Australian Federal Police as a key tenant.
