CONSTRUCTION of a new industrial development which aims to combine natural rustic materials with a modern contemporary style has started on site.
Kiln Park, located within the Allerton Bywater Millennium Village near Leeds, has received interest from occupiers with seven of it’s eight industrial units already under offer.
The development is a joint venture between Priority Space and HG Holdings to build eight industrial buildings ranging in size from 1,313 sq ft to 3,067 sq ft and three retail units ranging from 710 sq ft to 4068 sq ft.
Building and civil engineering company Britcon has been appointed to deliver the scheme and is on site with completion expected by July this year.
Adam Richardson, director at Priority Space, said: “We are delighted to start on site with our first joint venture with HG Holdings. Strong interest in the scheme goes to highlight that we are delivering against a real demand for high quality industrial units.
“We are pleased to appoint Britcon to deliver the scheme with a design that is quite unusual for industrial accommodation, combining natural rustic materials with a modern contemporary style and this has been a key factor in the demand we have received to date.”
He added: “We have a number of positive leads for the three retail units too and are hoping to secure a national convenience store operator for the 4,000 sq ft unit. The residents of Allerton Bywater have shown huge support for these local facilities.
“The industrial and retail units are being offered both for sale and to lease. By providing this flexibility of tenure, we can appeal to a range of occupiers, from national to regional and local. We have always enjoyed working with SMEs, helping them to realise their potential and facilitate growth.”
In February Just Childcare, a rapidly expanding group of children’s day nurseries, acquired phase two at Kiln Park and announced plans to deliver a 5,000 ft, 82 place nursery, due to open in early 2017. Kiln Park is located close to the A63 Selby By-pass providing direct access to the A1 (M), M1 and in turn, the M62, through Castleford.
