Date published: 31 January 2024

Construction is underway on two new units of 87,000 sq.ft. and 116,500 sq.ft. at Kingsway Business Park.

Glencar Construction has been appointed to deliver the new industrial/warehouse units by project partners Wilson Bowden Developments and Cabot Properties and the units are set to be completed by the end of 2024.

Henry Henson, commercial development manager at Wilson Bowden, said: "We are thrilled to partner with Cabot Properties in delivering further high-quality, Grade A speculative units at our flagship Kingsway Business Park development. The ongoing development rollout emphasises the site's unmatched location on the M62 and the robust occupier market.

Michael Williams, director at Cabot Properties, expressed: "We are very pleased to have closed this off-market development funding, partnering with Wilson Bowden Developments to deliver high quality industrial stock into the Greater Manchester region."

Highlighting sustainability, the units will feature PV panels, 10% electric vehicle charging spaces, LED lighting, and aim for an ECP 'A' rating and BREEAM 'Very Good' status.

The units will be available for lease through B8 Real Estate who advised Cabot Properties on the transaction.

The Kingsway Partnership is a joint venture involving Wilson Bowden Developments, Rochdale Development Agency, Rochdale Borough Council, and Homes England, reflecting Rochdale's commitment to providing cutting-edge facilities, fostering sustainable growth, and contributing to the economic vitality of the region. The park is already home to big names including Asda, JD Sports, Amazon, Danish Crown, E-on UK and Dachser.
