Clowes Development is building an industrial logistics park to support the growing high-performance engineering and motorsport sector in Northamptonshire.
It is looking to develop a new 345,300 sq ft scheme – Podium Business Park – which will have industrial/warehouse units from 8,000 sq ft up to a detached facility of 75,000 sq ft – strategically located directly adjacent to the A43 near Silverstone Motor Circuit.
The units will be speculatively constructed in a number of phases to an institutional specification.
Northamptonshire’s long history in the high-performance engineering sector started with Silverstone in the 1950s but has significantly expanded and diversified. This has put increasing pressure on the County to make available the right quantity and quality of land and premises to attract and retain such high value businesses.
Commercial agent, Prop-Search has been instructed as sole marketing agent and Director Ian Harman said: “At the traditional core of high-performance engineering in Northamptonshire is the manufacture of F1 and other racing cars and engines. However, the supply chain includes a large number of associated companies which provide niche products, testing and measurement services, and high-end customised finishes – often requiring bespoke premises.”
