One of our key aims as a business is to grow and develop our large commercial land portfolio in order to meet increasing enquiries, interest and demand arising across the regions, matched by a reported shortage in the supply of appropriately sized commercial space.
We have a range of projects moving forward as we prepare land and invest in key infrastructure, facilitating serviced plots. These provide us with the opportunity to deliver a range of occupancy solutions to potential customers, ranging from the sale of the plot to the customer to develop their own unit through to pre-letting an income-generating building that we can either retain as part of our Income Portfolio or sold as an investment opportunity.
Our track record in delivering new commercial development to the regions is impressive. Logistics North in Bolton is the North West’s largest live commercial scheme, with 1.5 million sq. ft already built or in build within the site’s 4 million sq. ft consent. We are also the masterplanner and developer behind the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham – the ‘Mayfair’ address for advanced manufacturing, where world-class research businesses and supply chain manufacturers such as Rolls-Royce and Boeing are developing cutting-edge technologies and advanced manufacturing processes.
Our portfolio also includes seven multi-let Business Parks across the UK that form an integral part of our Income Portfolio. These Parks offer a range of available accommodation to occupiers that often benefit from having a range of industrial assets in situ, including rail connections and high-power capabilities.
