St. Modwen’s 117,000 sq ft industrial and warehousing space at Access 18, in Avonmouth, begins to take place as the first steel frames have gone up this month.

Due to complete in November 2017, the commercial space provides a choice of 14 units with floor space ranging from 5,000 to 15,800 sq ft, catering for a wide range of occupier size requirements. The units will help to satisfy the pent-up demand in the local area for industrial and distribution space as well as create opportunity to attract over 200 more jobs for the local area.

Senior Development Manager of the South West for St. Modwen, Pete Davies, said:

“As the UK’s leading regeneration specialists, we are progressing this smaller industrial unit and warehousing space as Access 18, Avonmouth remains a popular choice for production and distribution organisations looking to expand their operations. Units are available for purchase or rent and occupier discussions are already underway.

“We continue to implement these speculative building programmes across our key commercial sites to meet the market demand, and Access 18 can also deliver bespoke units of up to 100,000 sq ft to occupier requirements.”

Access 18 of Avonmouth is already home to 12 companies including Kent Foods and Hermes Parcelnet Ltd, and continues to develop in six phases. The £150m scheme is located at Bristol’s principal industrial and distribution area with close proximity to Avonmouth Docks.

The new speculative units are available for sale or rent and interested occupiers can contact St. Modwen joint agents, Alder King or Knight Frank, for more information or visit
