Paperchase has taken Unit A at Frontier Estates’ A1M1Link scheme at Thrapston in Northamptonshire on a ten year lease at £4.75 per sq ft.
Unit A comprises 150,000 sq ft with 141,600 sq ft of warehouse space and 8,400 sq ft of fully fitted offices, plus 141 car parking spaces.
The unit was built speculatively, said Charlie Howard of M3, joint letting agent for the scheme with Burbage Realty. “There was further demand for high-quality industrial space in the area,” he said.
He has high hopes for the 100,000 sq ft D&B unit, which can also be accommodated on the 90-acre site. Existing occupiers include Ikea, International Paper Containers, Resin Express and Morrisons. The park is located adjacent to the A14, at the A45/A605 junction, linking the A1 to the M1, M6 and national motorway network.
