Two new property sales have been secured at Trentham South part of Trentham Lakes, the 400 acre business and leisure community being developed by Stoke on Trent Regeneration Ltd, a joint venture between St. Modwen and Stoke on Trent City Council.

One of the sales has been secured at Trentham Trade Park, where precision engineering specialists Gemini Controls has expanded into a 5,000 sq ft unit from nearby premises in Stoke-on-Trent. The other sale is at neighbouring Trentham Business Quarter, where independent travel company Blue Bay Travel, which specialises in Caribbean holidays, has purchased a 1,820 sq ft unit for its UK headquarters.

The deals leave just one of a total of 27 properties remaining at Trentham Business Quarter and one of 13 properties remaining at thriving Trentham Trade Park. Trentham Office Village, which is also part of Trentham South, has its final property, Building Four, totalling over 10,500 sq ft, currently under offer.

“This impending deal coupled with the latest sales at Trentham South is a clear sign that not only is the market in Stoke-on-Trent continuing to strengthen but also that Trentham Lakes is fast establishing a reputation as a leading business location,” commented Andrew Cox, development surveyor for St. Modwen. “The development is proving hugely successful in attracting businesses across a spectrum of sectors with the balance between national and local companies providing added commercial strength and gravitas through diversity.”

Widely recognised as the home of Stoke City Football Club’s Britannia Stadium, a project that kick-started the wider regeneration of Trentham Lakes, the highly successful scheme has to-date attracted over 50 commercial occupiers across its Trade Park, Office Village and Business Quarter, with 70 acres of the site left to develop. Existing occupiers include Lexus, Audi, Screwfix, Pets at Home and Glen Dimplex with onsite amenities including Holiday Inn Express, Greens Health and Fitness, plus other sporting, retail and dining facilities.
