More than 70,000 sq ft of energy-efficient Birmingham warehouse and trade counter space is set to be created in a prime roadside location, creating new jobs.
Legal & General’s IPIF Fund and Prime Box have secured planning permission to deliver Prime Park on a 3.4-acre brownfield site adjacent to Hamstead Hill in Hamstead, just four miles north of Birmingham city centre.
Located next to a new Lidl superstore, there will be ten net zero carbon, BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A+ rated units suitable for industrial / warehouse and trade occupiers.
Several of these Birmingham industrial units have already been pre-let to occupiers, including self-storage operator, SureStore, which has taken the largest building of 17,222 sq ft.
Kenny Allan, Director of KWB industrial agency, is joint letting agent for this new Birmingham warehouse space, together with Mark Fitzpatrick of Johnson Fellows.
Kenny said: “Prime Park will have a truly unique location in the busy suburb of Hamstead, with excellent roadside prominence, transport connectivity and high volumes of passing traffic.
“This is the first speculative development in the area for many years and will help answer the huge demand for warehouse space in Birmingham, as demonstrated by the lettings we’ve secured before construction has even started. I urge interested industrial occupiers to get in touch as soon as possible.”
Richard Lord of Prime Box added: “It has been a pleasure working with Birmingham City Council to bring forward this new industrial scheme on a redundant former factory site. We look forward to starting construction with a view to completing it in Q1 2024, in turn bringing inward investment and new jobs for local people. There are also amenities and public transport within walking distance, benefiting employees and customers.”
Jonathan Holland, Senior Fund Manager for LGIM Real Assets, added: “Sustainability has played a major factor in our plans for Prime Park, which we know is important to occupiers.
“The Prime Park scheme will be very energy efficient, incorporating ground source heat pumps, photovoltaic panels (PVs), LED lighting and electric vehicle charging points for cars and vans.”
