A new 400,000 sq ft warehouse scheme is being planned for 29-acre site in Kings Norton, Birmingham.
The former Pilkington Automotive and GKN Aerospace site is being brought forward by St Francis Group and funded by the Richardson family. This is the third collaboration between the two parties following the successful development and sale of Velocity42 in Redditch and Cransley Park in Kettering.
A detailed planning application will be submitted later this year with work on site scheduled to begin once the existing occupiers vacate next year.
Gareth Williams, director at St Francis Group, said: “We have seen a huge growth in the mid box industrial warehouse market, and we will be aiming to meet that demand with eight new energy efficient units ranging from 25,000 sq ft to 70,000 sq ft.
The new units will be ready for occupation by the end of 2022. Marketing for pre-let deals will begin immediately.
Savills and JLL are joint letting agents.
