Wilson Bowden Developments has announced its plans for the development of a 115 acre site in Nottingham.
Castlewood Business Park, located at junction 28 of the M1, will create two million sq ft of space for office, industrial and distribution use creating one of the largest schemes of this nature in the company’s development portfolio.
Infrastructure works have commenced on site and the first phase of development which will create 85,000 sq ft of space will be available in summer 2008. A full programme of speculative development will continue on site.
Units up to 750,000 sq ft will be provided at Castlewood Business Park providing scope to accommodate requirements from the local, regional and national marketplace.
Neil Hartley, development director for Wilson Bowden Developments said: “Junction 28 is one of the success stories of the former East Midlands coalfield area, having emerged as a distribution location of regional and national significance.
“The development comes on stream to meet both indigenous demand and major operator led enquiries.
“Castlewood also enables Junction 28 to be marketed to a wider audience as its scale enables the location to attract a national distribution centre of up to 750,000 sq ft in size, whereas the sites developed to date have simply not had the capacity to develop a unit of this scale.”
The strategic location of Castlewood Business Park will add to its attraction as well as the local availability of a skilled workforce. Fisher Hargreaves Proctor ha been appointed as sole agents for the development.
