Stoford has been selected as development partner for the final phase of a new multi-million-pound industrial and distribution hub in Wiltshire, it was announced today.
The Amesbury Property Company has appointed the Birmingham-based property developer to deliver a range of warehouse units on the remaining two serviced sites totalling 16 acres known as EOS.
EOS, at Solstice Park, at Amesbury near Salisbury, offers plots to accommodate units of up to 155,000 sq ft for industrial and distribution occupiers. Fully serviced development platforms have been formed allowing construction to commence immediately.
Units are available on a design and build basis either on leasehold or freehold terms. EOS 1 comprises 7.82 acres while EOS 2 comprises 8.74 acres. The development will bring further major investment and new jobs to the region.
Solstice Park is an established 160-acre business park situated alongside the A303 dual carriageway. It offers a strategically located development opportunity for industrial, distribution, trade, roadside, and office users. The site provides excellent access from its mid southern location to the motorway network via the M3 to London and the M25, and north via the A34 to the M4 and M40.
Current occupiers include Home Bargains (TJ Morris), Muller Wiseman, Qinetiq, Greggs Bakery, and Tintometer. In addition the services provided on Solstice Park include Holiday Inn Hotel, Toby Inn, Co op Food, Pizza Hut, Costa Coffee, Kentucky Fried Chicken and McDonalds.
