Three units are under offer at a large commercial property scheme being built near Bournemouth, Dorset.
The 26-unit speculative development of industrial, logistics and trade counters, by Northwood Urban Logistics, is on track to complete this autumn and comprises three distinct areas being constructed at the same time.
Bedrock Park is at Vulcan Way, Ferndown Industrial Estate, Wimborne, with property consultancy Vail Williams and DTRE joint marketing agents for the 187,528 sq ft scheme.
Bryony Solan, a surveyor and associate at Vail Williams in Dorset, said: “Two of the trade counter units are already under offer and unit 13, at 16,221 sq ft, is also under offer.
“Agreeing pre-lets at this stage is an encouraging start; we anticipate more companies looking to lease quality workspace in a strategically located position on the South Coast will come forward once we edge nearer construction completion. Occupier demand is outstripping supply in the UK’s booming e-commerce economy, with fulfilment centres and last-mile delivery increasingly prevalent to ensure customers receive same-day goods.”
Units 1 to 11a comprise trade counters from 2,680 sq ft to 5,016 sq ft, with 6.5m clear internal height; the first five are finished to a shell specification and the remainder fully fitted with first floor offices.
Units 18 to 26 are light industrial/warehouse, from 2,852 sq ft to 6,254 sq ft, with 8.4m clear internal height. They are finished to a shell specification so occupiers can fit out to their own needs and include first floors for storage or as an office.
Units 13 and 17 are warehouse/logistics, from 14,941 sq ft to 64,583 sq ft, with 8.4m clear internal height and fully fitted first floor offices.
Latest environmentally friendly technologies are being utilised to reduce the costs of occupation, with a targeted minimum EPC rating of B.
Bryony said green technologies include low air permeability design, electric vehicle charging points, photovoltaic panels on units 18 and 22-26, high-performance insulated cladding and roof materials, increased natural lighting in warehousing and secure cycle parking.
Located on the premier industrial location in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch conurbation, all the units, which come with electric loading doors, are available leasehold.
