Stourbridge industrial site ripe for regeneration

An industrial site in the Black Country is being sold for redevelopment, Worcester-based agents Halls Wilkins Commercial has announced.

Titan Works, a 3.24-acre site on Old Wharf Road, Stourbridge, is a former engineering works situated close to the town centre and adjacent to the historic canal network.

The site has exciting development potential for residential, retail, leisure and commercial uses, subject to planning, according to Halls Wilkins Commercial partner Rob Champion.

Old Wharf Road is located west of the A491 Stourbridge to Kingswinford Road known as High Street. It is 100 metres north of the Stourbridge Ring Road and around 500m north of the town centre.

The property comprises two land parcels to the north and south of Old Wharf Road respectively. To the north, a collection of industrial and manufacturing buildings with associated offices, once the headquarters of well-known engineering company, Jones & Attwood. To the south, open car parking land and a disused weighbridge fronting the Stourbridge Canal.

A further 1.35 acres comprising a single-storey 11,423 sq ft industrial workshop is also available. There are two small yards at either end of the building and an area of open storage land between the building and the canal.

Rob said: “Titan Works is no longer suitable for longer term industrial and manufacturing uses and the opportunity therefore exists for alternative uses to be explored, subject to planning. The site lies within an area identified for potential housing development and would benefit from regeneration.

“Working with the Black Country Joint Core Strategy and the Stourbridge Area Action Plan, potential developers will need to consider how they can improve the land fronting the canal but will have the opportunity to enhance the prospects of a declining area and deliver exciting development on a brownfield site.”
