Hong Kong founded Sydney design business of 30 years finds new home at Interlink Strathfield industrial estate
Functionality, efficiency, and longevity are the core principles underpinning Interlink’s Industrial design units
Since 1989, Johnny Loi’s retail-wholesale business has been dressing Australian windows with bespoke curtains and blinds for commercial and retail clients, which has included hotels such as The Langham, Sydney and thousands of private homes.
After decades in the business, the Director of Eternal Bellus Design, Johnny Loi knows good design and with a portfolio of residential properties, he also knows a valuable property investment when he sees it.
With Eternal Bellus Design fast outgrowing its current Silverwater headquarters, Loi turned to the web to find a larger manufacturing space.
Initially looking to rent rather than buy, he entered his required dimensions of a 400sqm industrial unit in a real estate search and soon realised both the scarcity of industrial spaces available near the CBD and in smaller sized warehouses.
“It was that simple, Interlink Strathfield offered the right size space and after researching I also found that rents for industrial warehouses were going up substantially. It made financial sense for me to invest in industrial,” says Loi.
The Interlink Strathfield estate encompasses 65 strata title industrial units sized from 150sqm up to 1,000sqm and 23 strata titled storage warehouse units sized from 21sqm to 82sqm.
Interlink’s modern state-of-the-art units designed by renowned architects Rothelowman appealed to Loi’s design eye, as did purchasing property ‘off the plan’.
"Buying ‘off the plan’ is the common Hong Kong way of buying a property and a great way to secure a good price for the future. Other advantages included giving me time to plan my factory and warehouse relocation, as well as the flexibility to build the experiential customer showroom I've wanted for years,” says Loi.
Industrial factory units are simple and robust concrete structures, giving buyer’s piece of mind when purchasing off the plan, and have minimal ongoing maintenance requirements.
The site spans 26,000sqm and a low-density design allows ample space for wide driveways, parking, and dedicated container drop zones allowing the estate to function smoothly and efficiently.
Located on a prime corner site on Cosgrove Road and Cleveland Street in Strathfield South in Sydney’s inner west, opposite the Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre, Eternal Bellus Design will also benefit from Interlink Strathfield’s easily accessible transport logistics and distribution links for customer deliveries and a central location for customer pick up.
The property development group, Primewest Development has sold more than 65 per cent of at its $65 million industrial estate.
The last industrial units and storage units at Interlink Strathfield are now selling from $814,000 including parking. Units are also available with fenced private yards, which is a unique offering providing occupiers with outdoor storage - rarely seen in strata developments.

- Industrial land supply is constrained, and Australia is on the cusp of an e-commerce boom, placing further pressure on demand for warehouse space
- Predicted capital growth due to lack of supply and growing demand
