The properties are near rectangular to irregular in shape, sloping at a gentle gradient. The property has 2 road frontages to the Old Main Road and Dipping Tank Road and therefore is afforded fair exposure to passing pedestrian and traffic flow.
The immediate area comprises a mix of Service Industrial, Light Industrial, Low key Commercial, the Illovo Head office, Club and Live Stock Outlet. Surrounding this semi established industrial node are farms being utilised for sugar cane activities to the main.
