230 jobs could be created by new warehouse development

Up to 230 jobs could be created when the first phase of a new 58-acre business park in Gloucestershire is completed, according to the developer.

Construction giant at St Modwen has released an update on the progress of the first 173,000 sq ft being delivered on business park off the M5 close to junction 12.

Scheduled to be complete in December 2019, a total of three new industrial and warehouse units at what is being called St. Modwen Park Gloucester are currently being built by main contractor for the first phase, Northampton-based Winvic Construction.

"When completed and fully occupied, it's expected these three units will accommodate up to 230 jobs, meeting demand for high quality logistics and production space with unrivalled access to the adjacent Junction 12 of the M5," said a statement from St Modwen.

Pete Davies, development director at St Modwen, said: "St Modwen Park Gloucester is an important strategic site for our national delivery of high quality industrial and logistics space and to meet market demands within the Gloucestershire area.

"The first three units will offer detached units of 45,000, 56,000 and 73,000 sq ft and discussions are underway with occupiers ready for occupation at the end of 2019.

"In addition to these first three units we are ready to deliver build-to-suit opportunities of up to 400,000 sq ft for businesses looking to move to this site's prime location."

St Modwen Park Gloucester is a 58-acre development and is one of three St Modwen sites in Gloucestershire alongside the £22 million Gateway 12 Business Park and £150 million mixed-use scheme at Littlecombe in Dursley.
