Speculative development at Deeside announced after Zone Two reaches 100% occupancy

Joint letting agents Legat Owen and B8 Real Estate have signed up local business, Transform Your Kitchen, to the last remaining unit measuring 5,079 sq ft on a 5-year lease at Zone Two on Deeside Industrial Park.

With Zone Two now fully let, following a string of new deals in the last 12 months to tenants including: Home & Garden Products; Unistow; North West Roofing Supplies, Plancast and Pups & Pets, the owner is looking at speculative development at Site One which is due to commence imminently.

Detailed planning permission for two high quality warehouse / distribution facilities measuring 63,205 sq ft and 39,762 sq ft was granted by Flintshire Borough Council in 2019. McClaren Construction has subsequently been appointed as main contractor for this latest phase of construction. Demolition will commence in the autumn with practical completion due in Q4 2024.

Mark Diaper, associate director at Legat Owen, joint agents for the scheme with B8 Real Estate commented: “We believe this is the first time that Zone Two has been fully occupied, demonstrating the strong demand we are seeing in Deeside for small and mid-box units. With this trend set to continue, our client’s decision to press ahead with the speculative development of these larger units underlines the continued confidence in the market.

Deeside Industrial Park is off the A548/A550, two miles from the end of the M56 which provides access to the national motorway and road networks servicing North Wales and the North West. Z2 comprises a 105-acre site providing 850,000 sq ft of industrial, warehouse and manufacturing accommodation.

Deeside is situated within a Tier II Grant Assisted Area and qualifying projects may be eligible for grant support.

Units are available on a leasehold basis.
