New industrial development for Site E, Kingswood Lakeside, Cannock

Leading Midlands’s commercial developer, Trebor Developments and funding partner, Kay Properties (Midlands) Limited, have purchased a prominent 5 acre site, located at Kingswood Lakeside, Cannock.  The site was purchased from receivers acting on behalf of Morston Lakeside Limited.

The development partnership recently announced the purchase of a site at Airfield Drive, Aldridge, to develop a speculative 55,000 sq ft industrial facility during 2017.  At the Kingswood site it is proposed to develop an industrial unit of 100,000 sq ft, suitable for B1, B2 and B8 uses with development implementation in 2017 anticipated, so the unit will be ready by the end of the year.

The development will be marketed as Core.

Trebor Developments completed in 2015 the Cannock Gateway Retail Park, which is located close to Site E, Kingswood Lakeside and has traded extremely well since its opening.

Bob Tattrie, Managing Partner of Trebor Developments, on behalf of the development partners commented, “This is another major site acquisition, which will allow us to bring forward much-needed high quality, industrial, accommodation in the Midlands.  The Lakeside, Cannock, area has become very well-established for occupiers looking for good access to the motorway network, with facilities locally and good staff availability.  Hellerman Tyton, APC Parcels and First Choice are all occupiers who have relocated to Lakeside, Cannock, in the past 2 years and we expect strong interest in the new 100,000 sq ft building we will be developing.  The site is opposite a 370,000 sq ft cross-dock speculative industrial facility, which is currently being constructed.
