CWC Group recently acquired 30 acres of development land, part of the former Highgate works in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent in the Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone. Phase 1 of the project saw the creation of a 100,000 sq. ft. Distribution Centre for Tile Mountain. Work will now commence on development of the rest of the site.
Marc Freeman, director at CWC Group, said: “We have made a substantial investment in acquiring 30 acres of development land in Stoke-on-Trent, knowing there were occupiers in the area looking for high quality buildings.
“The construction of 100,000 square foot for Tile Mountain has been a fantastic start and we are committed to bring forward the rest of land for development as soon as we can.
“We are in discussions with a wide variety of occupiers who have been drawn to the site due to the great access, the enterprise zone benefits, and our proactive approach in bringing land and buildings forward quickly.”
Andrew Groves, director at agents Harris Lamb, added: “This speculative project is an exciting development for Stoke-on-Trent and one that we believe will be well received following on-going concerns about the shortage of industrial stock in recent months.”
