Mercedes-Benz pays big sum for new site in Tullamarine

April 3, 2018 by  

Car manufacturing giant Mercedes-Benz has been speculated to be paying around $25m for the purchase of a two-hectare site next to the Tullamarine Freeway, which is currently undergoing a transformation into a new commercial hub.

The luxury car firm is making this high-profile off-market purchase from Phil Ridgway.

The new Mercedes-Benz site is strategically located West of Essendon Airport at 71 Matthews Avenue, which runs parallel to Tullamarine Freeway. Essendon Airport, which was a key airport prior to the completion of the Tullamarine facility, is under a 99-year lease held by a consortium since 2001.

Approximately 200,000 vehicles drive past the Mercedes-Benz site every day, which is currently filled with many low rise industrial buildings. People around the location also enjoy the convenience of a tram, which runs between the CBD and Westfield Airport West shopping centre.

In November 2017, the German automotive giant launched its seventh global concept store, called Mercedes Me, in Collins Street. The store was opened within a leased location under the Rialto Towers complex.

Car buyers who are interested in finding out more about the wide range of Mercedes-Benz vehicles can visit a showroom or get in touch with a nearby car dealership. Contact details of vehicle representatives and salespeople can be found on business cards or via word of mouth.
