High demand for first new-build premises in ten years

03 March 2019

The some of first new-build industrial premises off the ground in more than a decade at Glen Parva has sparked a surge of inquiries.

Built in an attractive riverside setting by the Soar, the new units at Wharf Way Business Park, will provide much needed warehousing, factory and office space for growing businesses for rent, with the first three units due for completion next month (April) and the remaining two following swiftly.

With space available from 8,713 sq ft to 23,080 sq ft the scheme will fulfil a wide range of demands. Excellent location, four miles south of Leicester and also close to the motorway connections, boosts the appeal of the business park. Exceptional road links provide immediate access to the A426 linking with Leicester’s outer ring road and direct dual carriage connection to the M1/M69 Junction 21, two and a half miles away. 

Planning permission has been granted for B1, B2 and B8 use. The new buildings will provide internal clearance from 7m and ground level loading provision. The development also provides generous car parking, IT connections and secure fencing with a gated entrance.

The park’s location in the sought after district of Blaby also benefits from immediate catchment to employment and support industries in neighbouring Enderby, Whetstone, Blaby, Wigston, Braunstone and Narborough. 

Malcolm Grayson, Director at Andrew + Ashwell, said the development at Wharf Way is good news for local and regional business.
“We have been waiting a good ten years for high quality speculative commercial development in this area and now it has arrived and it is not surprisingly generating considerable interest to fulfill longstanding demand. We are looking forward to monitoring the success of the site and the release of the further units.
