NEGOTIATIONS are under way with three businesses to lease parts of the former Electrolux factory.
Agent Chris Gryllis said the recent purchaser of the site would occupy part of the premises, but would lease out the remainder, across multiple large buildings including factory space, warehouse space and offices.
The space has been promoted as located two kilometres from the CBD with camera security and reasonable rent per square metre, with partitioning options available.
Mr Gryllis said activity on the site was likely by Christmas.
"The old factory needs a bit of TLC," he said.
"We have expressions of interest from three possible tenants and we're just negotiating with them."
The purchasing company from Sydney and its plans remain unannounced.
