Prior to development of advanced manufacturing processes and assembly lines, most industrial developments were undertaken on an ad hoc basis, springing up either close to natural resources or in urban hubs that made supply distribution easy. European cities, like Edinburgh and Dublin, are prime examples where industrial facilities stand side-by-side next to residential and commercial buildings. As the sciences of manufacturing, urban planning and transportation infrastructure advanced through the 19th and early 20th centuries, the trend developed of segregating factories and manufacturing plants and clustering them together away from living spaces and close to transportation routes.

The industrial park is developed with a focus on industries rather than corporate and historically white-collar operations. The Park operates on the basis of providing specific benefits for tenants/lessee, centering mainly on the concept of economies of scale. Park developers can afford to install high-volume electricity, communications, and fuel lines, and other things like road and rail access points that would not be possible in mixed-use zones. This serves to both attract industrial tenants as well as driving down per unit cost of utilities and shipping.


Development Benefits

  • Economies of Scale out of common services and facilities (roads, water supply, drainage, power station etc.)
  • Location of industries to semi-urban or rural areas
  • Help to relieve congestion and pollution in metropolitan areas,
  • Strengthening the industrial base of small towns and rural areas
  • Reduction of rural-urban migration
  • Reduction of commuter traffic
  • Increased efficiency of urban land use
  • Reduced costs of land development and the provision of utilities
  • Job creation opportunities
  • Social inclusion (youth and women)
  • Poverty reduction
  • Sustainable energy use and support for local research and entrepreneurship
