Work has started on construction of 16 speculative business units to support SMEs in the Doncaster region.
Developer Priority Space, backed by HG Sites, is behind the new-builds at Platinum Park and Jubilee Park – named in honour of the Queen's 70 years on the throne, and Doncaster being granted city status to mark that occasion.
The developments, off First Avenue, are located on a 4.8-acre site adjacent to Priority Space's existing 12-unit Avro Park, which was completed in 2019 and is now fully occupied.
The parks will feature 13 smaller properties for industrial and logistics use, ranging in size from 1,750 sq ft to 5,800, and three larger units, designed to meet rising demand amongst SMEs for units with more space and storage capacity. These will measure 13,000, 16,000 and 30,000 sq ft.
Once complete, Priority Space and HG Sites will have invested £12m in this Doncaster site and created more than 120,000 sq ft of industrial space across 6.3 acres.
Lee Buchanan, director at Priority Space, said: "We are very proud of our commercial property investment in Doncaster and look forward to completing this development.
"We're delivering three properties a little larger than our usual units in this second phase to meet growing demand from businesses in the online retail and specialist supply sectors. They need warehousing and distribution bases which are that bit bigger to successfully run their businesses.
"Our new units are well-placed in Doncaster and provide them with the space and facilities they need to expand and invest in growth."
Completion of all units is expected in spring 2023.
Chris Dungworth, Head of Service for Business Doncaster said: “It is fantastic to see growth in Doncaster’s commercial property offer, providing small and mid-sized industrial units which will support the expansion of the borough’s well-established manufacturing sector. These new high-quality workspaces will support business growth and stimulate new inward investment, creating high quality jobs for local residents”.
