Howdens signs up to Centurion Park, Southampton

Howdens has taken a new lease on a 11,463 sq ft unit at Centurion Park, Southampton. The trade, kitchen and joinery supplier is the latest tenant to sign up to the scheme, which has attracted occupiers including Royal Mail, Screwfix and Tool Station and is now fully let.

Centurion Park is an industrial and trade counter park located on the banks of the River Itchen and fronts on to the main approach road to Southampton, offering easy access to the city centre, the container port and the M3 and M27 motorways.

Colliers Global Investors acting as agent for the landlord, Staffordshire County Council Pension Fund, has recently undertaken an extensive refurbishment of the final remaining unit now let to Howdens and followed the letting of the adjacent Unit D Asia Food (Bristol) Ltd earlier this year.

Dan Rawlings, director at Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH), said: “This deal represents the natural conclusion of an active asset management brief from the client. All parties worked swiftly to deliver a comprehensive refurbishment and to deliver much-needed new space to a market in short supply, despite the current economic headwinds”.

LSH and Vail Williams are joint letting agents on Centurion Park, while Howdens was advised by Montagu Evans.
