As Adelaide’s traditional manufacturing heartland, Playford locals have decades of experience developing and producing world-class products.

Lionsgate Business Park

The former home of General Motors Holden has been reborn as an expansive 123 hectare high tech business park with heavily engineered buildings ranging from 3000 to 58000 sqm. As of late 2022, there were more than 900 site entrances every weekday.

The site’s owners, Melbourne-based Pelligra Group, have a track record of working with tenants to create state of the art spaces designed for efficiency – and Lionsgate Business Park is certainly no exception.

  • 30-50 tonne gantry cranes
  • Expansive hardstand areas
  • Substantial power and gas supply
  • Standalone car parks
