First phase of South Yorkshire airport development launched to market

The first phase of a speculative development near Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield Airport which will create 80 new jobs has brought three new units onto the market, ranging between 13,654 to 18,194 sq ft.

Kestrel Court on First Avenue, with its well-established industrial location near the airport and within close proximity to J3 M18, has already proved popular in a region where there is a strong demand for industrial space, with unit 3 already under offer.

Completion is expected this week and Marshall CDP are currently considering the second phase offering two further units of 17,000 and 21,000 sq ft.

It is hoped that the overall project, supported by Doncaster MBC’s Business Doncaster service will create up to 80 new jobs at the five units on site, which are for sale or to let.

Rebecca Schofield, head of the Yorkshire industrial team at Knight Frank, and agent for Kestrel Court, said: “This development, finished to Marshall CDP’s high specification, has delivered accessible, high quality industrial and warehouse space in a secure, and very well-located, environment.

“We continue to see healthy demand for industrial and warehouse space across the region, despite the economic uncertainty around COVID-19.”

The units at Kestrel Court feature fitted office accommodation with good sized loading and car parking in a landscaped business park setting.

Cllr Bill Mordue, Cabinet Member for Business, Skills and Economic Development at Doncaster Council, added: “We are delighted to see the incredible progress that has been made on Kestrel Court. It is excellent to see Marshall CDP showing great confidence in the Doncaster economy and the Airport site by building this major speculative industrial development scheme.

“Our Business Doncaster team is working closely with Knight Frank to market Kestrel Court and help find tenants for the three units and bring further quality investment and employment into Doncaster.”
