Toy giant takes last unit at Imperial Park, Coventry

US toy retailer Funko has snapped up the last unit at M&G Real Estate’s Imperial Park in Coventry.

The retailer has taken Unit 1, which totals 349,355 sq ft, on a new 10 year lease.

The speculatively built property has 15m eaves as well as 34 dock and four level access doors. It boasts 17,530 sq ft of two storey offices, 390 car parking spaces and a 55m yard.

M&G Real Estate acquired the 29-acre site in 2016 and has committed over £50 million to the development.

It consisted of three units measuring approximately 350,000 sq ft, 165,000 sq ft and 60,000 sq ft adjacent to Coventry Airport.

Menzies Distribution took the 165,000 sq ft unit in April this year while the smaller unit was let to to Innovare in 2017.

Joint letting agents on the scheme were Colliers and MWRE.
