First spec build for south coast

Construction is well advanced on the first speculatively built warehouse on the South Coast since 2005. The 58,307 sq ft high-bay facility at Royal London Park, Flanders Road, Hedge End is known as Unit 1 and replaces a redundant printed circuit board factory formerly occupied by APW.

The project, which began over a year ago, is due to complete by the end of May and represents a multi-million pound investment by Royal London Asset Management in the area. The unit will have a clear internal height of 10m, with air conditioned offices, and multiple loading doors suitable for both dock-level and warehouse level loading and receiving of goods.

Located within half a mile of Junction 5 of the M27, Unit 1 Royal London Park will also benefit from excellent road communications and is within a few minutes walk of Hedge End Retail Park, Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s.

Royal London Asset Management have appointed Vail Williams and Atisreal as joint letting agents.

Jason Webb of Vail Williams said: “There are very few buildings which will have the height, and therefore the storage capacity of Unit 1 Royal London Park. Couple this with the new unit’s excellent motorway access and I believe Royal London Asset Management have a winning combination that will appeal to a variety of occupiers.”
