St Modwen have announced plans for almost 120,000 sq. ft. of industrial space at their Burton Gateway site on the A38.
Plans have been submitted to East Staffordshire Borough council for the construction of three units of 54,000 sq. ft., 40,000 sq. ft. and 25,000 sq. ft. ; all suitable for storage, distribution or general industrial use.
Phase 1 of this site was the construction of an 87,000 sq. ft. unit which has been let to Hellmann Worldwide Logistics on a ten-year lease.
Ian Romano, development director at St Modwen, said: “There is a lack of new employment space across the Midlands, and we are building speculatively at a number of our key developments to satisfy the growing need for high quality and well connected space.
“With outline planning consent for up to one million sq. ft. of commercial business space, it is our intention to speculatively build this next phase to accommodate demand from both national and local occupiers.”
Subject to planning permission, works are expected to start in January 2018, with units available from August 2018.
