Wakefield sees major surge in demand for industrial property

Work has started on the third phase of construction at Marshall CDP’s South Kirkby Business Park.

Hundreds of tonnes of steel are currently being used to build three industrial units on the 22-acre site adjacent to the new A628 and close to the A1, A1(M) and M62 motorway network.

Commenting on the development, Ian Greenwood, managing director of joint marketing agents Carter Towler, said: “We have already had lots of enquiries about this latest phase which is fantastic as these units are being built speculatively.

“Marshall’s have been bold in their approach to developing additional property on this site from the outset.

“There is considerable demand for industrial properties like these across the region, as there has been for some time, and we are therefore very positive that these will be sold or let just as promptly. The initial phase which started in 2014 completed very quickly.”

The three completed detached units have been bought by PHS and commercial vehicle converters VFS. The remaining three which measure 13,600, 10,000 and 11,500 sq ft will be ready for occupation in May 2018.

Nick Arundel, joint agent at AWS, added: “This £2.25m scheme is in a great location in the heart of West Yorkshire and Marshall’s are committed to building top quality premises that are suitable for small to medium sized distribution, warehouse or manufacturing companies.”
