St. Modwen has begun the construction of its speculative development at St. Modwen Park, Chippenham.
The developer has a speculative 106,ooo sq ft unit which is to be completed and delivered in a further phase in 2020.
Located in Wiltshire, the site is located off junction 17 of the M4, and once completed, the whole site is expected to create around 1,300.
The site which was formerly known as Chippenham Gateway, secured planning permission from Wiltshire Council last year to build a variety of units ranging from 100,000 sq ft to 1,000,000sq ft on the 3,441,240 sq ft site.
Peter Davies, development director at St. Modwen Industrial & Logistics, said: “St. Modwen Park Chippenham is a key industrial and logistics site in the south west region.
“We have already had a significant amount of interest due to its excellent location and we are able to meet specific occupier requirements with build to suit solutions in addition to our high-quality speculative build programme.”
Alistair Cunningham, executive director at Wiltshire Council, added: “St. Modwen Park Chippenham is an important site with real potential for growing employment in the north of the county.
“Once complete, the site will drive economic development as well as bring job opportunities to the area.”
