Work starts on speculative industrial scheme at Hortonwood West, Telford
Trebor Developments, with partner Hillwood, has appointed Morris Property as the main contractor to construct its speculative industrial unit in Telford. The land has been acquired through the Telford Land Deal, a joint collaboration between Telford and Wrekin Council, Homes England and the Marches LEP.
The largest speculative industrial unit in the Telford area to be developed for 10 years, the accommodation extends to 70,540 sq ft (6,553 m2) in a single building and is available on competitive lease terms, 25% less than prime Birmingham rents.
Morris Property started on site in January and the building will be ready for occupation in summer 2020.
Bob Tattrie, Managing Partner for Trebor commented, “We look forward to working with Morris Property on this exciting project to bring quality, larger, industrial accommodation to Telford. This is the last plot at Telford and Wrekin Council’s Hortonwood West site, which has attracted a wide range of occupiers over the last 3 years to become one of the best industrial parks in Telford. We expect strong interest in this quality new unit, which is offered on competitive terms.”
Councillor David Wright, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet lead for the Land Deal, said “I am delighted that Hortonwood West is now filled – this is yet another success story for the Telford Land Deal.
“Hortonwood West has also benefited from investment by the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership which has funded infrastructure improvements on the site.
“I look forward to seeing Trebor Developments’ new unit completed and fully in operation and would like to wish the company and its staff all the best for the future.”
