A first look at a new business development in Lichfield has been unveiled.
The three warehouse units in Fradley will be known as The Wellington Trilogy in a nod to the area’s former life as an RAF base.
The individual buildings are being named Pegasus, Perseus and Merlin after some of the pioneering aircraft that flew from the site.
Commercial property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) has announced the project, which will be delivered by developer Graftongate..
Demolition of existing office buildings on the Wellington Crescent site is complete and construction on the new buildings is exected to be completed in early 2020.
Graftongate development manager Marcus Phayer said: “Fradley Park is an established regional location that is home to a variety of reputable occupiers who operate efficiently from this well connected location.
“There is a real lack of supply of ‘mid-box’ product, which is why the decision has been taken to demolish two obsolete office buildings and redevelop the site through providing three best-in-class industrial and logistics units, totalling 180,000 sq ft.”
Matthew Tilt, industrial agency director at LSH in Birmingham, said: “Development of The Wellington Trilogy will deliver three units with market-leading specification, offering companies operating from them the chance to excel within their marketplace.
“The sizes of the units fit within the highly sought-after mid-box industrial and logistics market and they sit in a proven and established location with excellent access to the region’s motorway network and main arterial routes. We are expecting there to be a huge amount of interest from potential occupiers.”
