Work resumes on new speculative trade counter scheme in Corby

Work on a new 10-unit industrial and trade counter scheme on Phoenix Parkway in Corby has now recommenced following the relaxation of ‘lockdown’ in accordance with Government guidance during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Having secured planning in September last year the developer, Clowes Developments, has pushed ahead to speculatively deliver the scheme which could see the site occupied as early as later on this year.

Omega Court, located within the Centrix Industrial and Distribution Park, will comprise of high-quality units ranging from 2,939 sq ft to 8,600 sq ft- with larger sizes available through combination.

Local agents Prop-Search and TDB Real Estate are now seeking interest in the new 45,563 sq ft development, adjacent to the successful Alpha Court, home to Screwfix, Crown Decorator Centre, Eurocell, Rexel, HSS and RB Tools.

Richard Baker, a Director at Prop-Search, said: “This is notably the town’s first speculative scheme of its kind for several years and is exactly what the market has been calling for. Even over the past couple of months with many businesses unable to trade, we have still received good levels of interest and 25% of space is already under offer.”

Oliver Thompson at TDB continued “Omega Court is an exciting development for us to market and we are confident the scheme will appeal to a wide range of occupiers, demonstrating demand in the trade counter sector for high quality developments in strong locations.”

The development of Omega Court proceeds Clowes Developments’ construction within the Park of a new 92,881 sq ft state-of-the-art food manufacturing facility for Bakeaway, one of Europe’s leading bakery operators, which completed in December 2019.”

Omega Court is being constructed in two terraces and will benefit from 6m minimum eaves height, up and over loading door, three-phase power and gas and large loading/car parking areas. Units are available on a leasehold basis although the developer may consider freehold sales.
