Construction completes on 77,800 speculative unit in Barnsley

Wilton Developments has announced that the latest speculative warehouse unit at Enterprise 36 Business Park in Barnsley is now complete and ready for immediate occupation.

Enterprise 36 is a prime four-unit scheme strategically located at Junction 36 of the M1 in South Yorkshire, from which approximately a quarter of the UK’s population is within a two-hour drive.

The newly completed Unit 2 provides versatile, high specification warehouse space finished to a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ standard, providing a total floor area of 77,800 sq ft which is immediately available To Let or For Sale.

Plot 1 at the business park is presently being prepared for immediate development on a build to suit basis. This plot can accommodate a single unit of up to 103,500 sq ft and has detailed planning consent for an immediate start.

The delivery of Unit 2 comes shortly after the hand-over of new units for William Rowland and DURA ID Solutions which were acquired off-plan and completed in March 2020. These two units provide over 102,000 sq ft of space.

Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council has supported the speculative development of Unit 2.

Toby Vernon, Partner at CPP, commented: “Unit 2 is a very high-quality building in a sought-after location and we are already seeing a good level of enquiries from occupiers. The demand for modern units such as this remains strong and this unit will cater well for local and regional occupiers”.

Jason Stowe, Managing Director of Wilton Developments, said: “Enterprise 36 has been a successful scheme and we are delighted to offer the latest unit to the market. We were pleased to deliver units 3 & 4 to William Rowland and Dura ID Solutions off-plan and subsequently develop the latest unit on a speculative basis”.

Councillor Tim Cheetham, Barnsley Council’s Cabinet Spokesperson for Place (Regeneration and Culture), added: “Our highly successful Property Investment Fund was established to work proactively with the private sector to provide first-class commercial developments for growing local companies and inward investors at key locations throughout the borough. Enterprise 36 is a perfect example of what can be achieved by doing so.

“Our award-winning Enterprising Barnsley Team is available to provide comprehensive business support to companies interested in occupying this excellent facility”.

Mike Baugh, Senior Director at CBRE commented: “It’s great to be involved with Enterprise 36 where Wilton have delivered very impressive scheme. Unit 2 offers a fantastic opportunity to rent or purchase a high-quality unit in a prime location.”
