- Melbourne and Brisbane Industrial Property 2012-2022 (pdf, 151kb)

In Brisbane, the outlook is for industrial property is more positive, but demand remains narrowly focused.

Demand for industrial space in Brisbane will continue to proceed at two different speeds in the short term. For both Melbourne and Brisbane, low levels of construction are doing the markets a favour.
