UK’s distributor of global footwear brands Gardiner Brothers & Co has taken a 116,00 sq ft warehouse at St. Modwen Logistics’ St Modwen Park Gloucester.
The footwear specialist has signed a 10-year agreement for a build-to-suit unit at the 58-acre site which, when complete, could create up to 50 new jobs for the local area.
St. Modwen plans to commence construction on the new unit in March, which will be ready for occupation in September 2021.
This unit will be the third St. Modwen facility to be occupied by Gardiner Brothers in Gloucester since signing the first deal at Quedgeley West Business Park in 2008.
The new, high-quality logistics space at St. Modwen Park Gloucester will provide Gardiner Brothers with 10 dock level loading doors, 2 level access loading doors, 93 car parking spaces, and Grade ‘A’ first floor office space.
Construction is also underway on the second phase of speculative development at the site, which will see St. Modwen Logistics deliver a further four new detached units between 36,000 and 55,000 sq ft. Work is expected to be complete on all five new units comprising over 300,000 sq ft in Q3 2021.
Build to suit opportunities are also available across the remainder of the site up to 300,000 sq ft.
Joint agents for the scheme are Alder King Property Consultants and DTRE.
