A BUSINESS park at Birstall has sold its last remaining phase one unit.
Advanced Dyeing Solutions has bought the final unit (above) – measuring 6,850sq ft – in phase one of the Springwell 27 scheme.
With all 11 units now sold within phase one, a planning application has been submitted to increase the amount of accommodation in the second phase from 26,000sq ft to 30,000sq ft.
During the early stages of the project, Ocado selected the site to house its 10,500sq ft regional distribution depot.
On the back of that, joint developers Gregory Property Group and Eshton Property Development – under the Eshton Gregory name – built phase one, which provided about 30,000sq ft of small units.
More than 200 jobs have been created at Springwell 27 over the past three years – with deals agreed with operators including Floorbrite, UPVC Maintainance, K R Hannaford, DSP Electrical and used JCB specialist T C Harrison Group.
Richard Tovey, director of Eshton Gregory, said, “The success of phase one at Springwell 27 serves to reinforce its excellent location.
“With all units now sold we are in a strong position to release the second phase of the scheme.”
Phase two will offer design-and-build opportunities ranging from 10,000sq ft to 30,000sq ft.
Springwell 27 is an eight-acre development alongside Birstall Retail Park close to junction 27 of the M62.
Joint marketing agents are Carter Jonas and Dove Haigh Phillips.
