Construction has started on 11 new industrial units at Kingsway Business Park in Rochdale ranging in size from 3,000 sq ft to 15,500 sq ft.
The speculative development called Logic@Kingsway will be completed in March 2019 and will offer occupiers small units to rent next to J21 of the M62.
Barnfield Construction will build the units with Wilson Bowden acting as project managers on the development which totals 60,000 sq ft and will be owned by Rochdale Borough Council.
Councillor Aasim Rashid, Assistant to Cabinet Member for Regeneration at Rochdale Borough Council:
“Kingsway continues to be one of the UK’s best performing business parks, it has brought significant investment to Rochdale and has created over 3000 new jobs. The addition of these small units brings greater opportunities to companies across the borough and will attract other new businesses that are looking for high quality industrial units with direct motorway access”.
Nick Davies, Construction Operations Director, Wilson Bowden:
“These are exciting times for Kingsway and this small unit scheme will enable local occupiers to move to high quality premises on the business park. There is strong demand and our agents are already in discussion with a number of companies who are interested in taking space”.
