Building starts at Redsun Bromborough site
Portal Construction has started on site at Redsun Developments’ £5.5m Power Station project in Bromborough on the Wirral.
The 95,000 sq ft project includes seven industrial units and is being delivered at a five-acre site within Wirral International Business Park, acquired by Redsun from the Homes & Communities Agency earlier this year. The development is due for completion in summer 2017.
Power Station is the Liverpool-based developer’s sixth development on the Wirral in recent years, having completed more than 300,000 sq ft of commercial floorspace, all fully occupied – the final phase of the 90,000 sq ft Turbine Business Park in Birkenhead was completed in August.
Craig Booton, managing director of Redsun Developments, said: “We know the Wirral market very well and are confident we are delivering the right product in this location. Enquiries are already very strong and we expect to conclude deals with occupiers in the coming months.”
The start of this project means that Redsun now has more than 300,000 sq ft currently on site. Eric Wright Construction is engaged to build a 170,000 sq ft manufacturing facility for Domino Printing Sciences in Bootle, whilst Portal Construction, in addition to Power Station, is delivering the second phase of Canada Dock Exchange on Liverpool’s Derby Road.
Booton added: “It’s a very busy time for us and seeing these three major schemes on site is a great way to end the year. 2017 looks like being just as busy as we have planning consents in place for 85,000 sq ft in two new locations, plus a further 100,000 sq ft in planning stages.”
Redsun has this year bought a 6.3-acre site in Ellesmere Port for the 50,000 sq ft Helix business park and picked up a two-acre plot at Huyton Business Park for 35,000 sq ft of industrial.
Legat Owen and B8 Real Estate are instructed as agents on Power Station, a scheme supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
