Lettings complete at prime North Bristol industrial park

A North Bristol industrial park has experienced a flurry of lettings after undergoing refurbishment.

Orpen Park in Almondsbury has attracted new occupiers: Furniture Village, Swagelok, Park Garden Centres and Energetics. DTZ’s Industrial agency team acted as sole agents to let all the vacant units on behalf of the landlord, Aviva Investors.

Unit 2, a 7,754 sq ft unit, was the first to be let, with Park Garden Centres taking a new lease to provide additional storage space for their nearby Almondsbury Garden Centre.

Represented by CWM, home interiors retailer Furniture Village has taken 17,156 sq ft at Unit 5 on a new 10 year lease for its regional distribution hub.

Fluid and gas system component distributor, Swagelok has moved into Unit 7 which comprises a detached 18,215 sq ft hybrid warehouse / office building. Savills represented Swagelok, who took a new 15 year lease.

Energetics Networked Energy, the multi-utility solutions provider has let the final unit, Unit 1 comprising 7,880 sq ft, also taking a new 15 year lease.

Located adjacent to junction 16 of the M5, Orpen Park is an established industrial / distribution park which is also home to Jungheinrich, and Rico Logistics, with other nearby occupiers including Yodel.

Philip Cranstone, Associate Director in DTZ’s Industrial agency team in Bristol, commented: “Orpen Park has been something of a success story for our client Aviva Investors. The units only became vacant in January last year and attracted strong interest after undergoing refurbishment.”

Michael Borello of Aviva Investors added: “Philip and DTZ have provided a very good service and have managed to successfully bring four new occupiers to the estate over the last 12 months. The Bristol industrial market has gone from strength to strength over the last year, with occupiers expanding and looking to take new high quality space. We are pleased to welcome all of our new tenants to Orpen Park.”
