Land sold for new Space Station storage facility in Birmingham

Back to news list

A new self-storage facility is under construction in Castle Bromwich, following the KWB-managed sale of development land to Space Station Self Storage. The forthcoming building on Chester Road will be Space Station’s 16th in the UK and is going to create three new jobs.

The 12,000 sq ft, six-storey property is being developed on vacant land at Castle Bromwich Trade Park, opposite the Fort Park Industrial Estate and close to Junction 5 of the M6.

The storage units will be a range of sizes suitable for personal and business needs, available either long or short term. On-site parking will also be part of the development.

KWB Industrial Agency managed the development land sale to Space Station on behalf of Marlin Land, and construction is due to complete in February 2023.

Kenny Allan, Director at KWB Industrial Agency said: “This land has laid redundant for over 20 years, so I’m pleased to see it being brought back to life and bringing new jobs and investment.

“We have worked closely with Space Station to design the new development, which has excellent visibility and easy access for customers and staff.”

Once open, Castle Bromwich will be our 16th site in the UK and will offer a premium self-storage solution to individuals and businesses across the Midlands.
