Eshton to add 600,000 sq ft at Burnley Bridge
The developer and investor has announced plans to extend its Burnley Bridge industrial and logistics park.
Located at junction 9 of the M65, the current scheme comprises Burnley Bridge and Titanium Park, which together span 80 acres.
Eshton said that the proposed £45m extension will be built on a 32-acre plot to the south of the M65 adjacent to the A679 Accrington Road. Branded as Burnley Bridge South, the scheme will provide a similar mix of warehousing and industrial accommodation to the existing business park, with a flexible range of units.
The indicative plans are for six units totalling 600,000 sq ft, although Eshton said that a single bespoke building with a footprint in excess of 500,000 sq ft could be accommodated.
James Chapman, managing director of Eshton, said: “Burnley Bridge South is part of Eshton’s vision to expand Burnley Bridge Business Park’s presence on the M65, it demonstrates the firm’s ongoing commitment to investing in Burnley.”
Enabled by a new flyover built in 2011, Burnley Bridge has attracted occupiers including technology distributor Exertis, which occupies a 550,000 sq ft unit, and haulier Fagan & Whalley, which took 92,000 sq ft. Plans for the 135,000 sq ft Titanium Park extension were revealed in December 2016.
