Work underway on Access 18 unit
Work has started on a new 151,000 sq ft speculatively developed scheme at Access 18 in Avonmouth.
Property giant St Modwen said the unit at Access 18 was being brought forward in response to continued market demand for logistics and production space close to the M5.
Scheduled to be ready for occupation in March 2019, the new unit is part of St Modwen’s overall strategy to accelerate commercial development activity.
Peter Davies, development director for St Modwen West and Wales, said: “Unit 15 should appeal to regional and national logistics companies and we are ready to discuss occupier specifics for March 2019 occupation.
“With Access 18 offering the prime location to access Junction 18 of the M5 and with the proximity to relevant local labour force, public transport and amenities, this is a key strategic site for St Modwen.”
This year there will be approximately 340,000 sq ft of new accommodation being developed at Access 18 across 17 new speculative units between 5,000 sq ft and 151,000 sq ft.
Preparations are also advanced for a further 260,000 sq ft in up to seven units.
Access 18 is being developed in phases and is already home to 14 companies, including big names such as Kent Foods, Hermes Parcelnet Ltd and Budget Greetings Cards.
The scheme has the potential to support in excess of 2,200 jobs.
