Exhibition firm goes to Collonade Point

Eden Park Developments, part of the Fiducia Group, has sold the first unit at its 7,664sq m industrial and distribution scheme at Prologis Park, Coventry, with two further units under offer. The 557sq m unit G has been taken by International Lifting and Shipping, a lifting, handling and freight forwarding company working in the exhibition industry, which is relocating from premises elsewhere in north Coventry.

The company has already taken possession of the warehouse / industrial unit, one of seven being built on the 4.5 acre scheme, Colonnade Point.

The remaining two 560sq m units are under offer, leaving four units of between 1,110sq m and 2,090sq m. They are available on a freehold or leasehold basis at £753 per sq m and £62 per sq m respectively.

David Bourne, managing director of International Lifting and Shipping, says: “We are relocating from just a few minutes down the road because this area has excellent access to the regional and national road network. Much of our work is at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham which is just ten minutes away on the M6, and it’s a lot cheaper than being based in Birmingham. It’s also very convenient for getting to other parts of the country.”
