McLaren Construction is gearing up to start work on 100,000 sq ft of speculative industrial space at Deeside Industrial Park after the last unit at Zone Two was let.
Joint letting agents Legat Owen and B8 Real Estate have agreed terms with local business Transform Your Kitchen to take 5,079 sq ft on five years to send Zone Two to 100% let.
Zone Two comprises a 105-acre site providing 850,000 sq ft of industrial, warehouse and manufacturing accommodation.
With the kitchens business joining other recent arrivals including Home & Garden Products; Unistow; North West Roofing Supplies, Plancast and Pups & Pets, construction will start at Site One.
Detailed planning permission for two warehouse/distribution facilities measuring 63,205 sq ft and 39,762 sq ft was granted by Flintshire Council in 2019, with McLaren since being appointed as main contractor by owner Columbia Threadneedle for this latest phase of construction.
Demolition will commence in the autumn with practical completion due in the fourth quarter of 2024.
Mark Diaper, associate director at Legat Owen, said: “We believe this is the first time that Zone Two has been fully occupied, demonstrating the strong demand we are seeing in Deeside for small and mid-box units.
“With this trend set to continue, our client’s decision to press ahead with the speculative development of these larger units underlines the continued confidence in the market.”
Deeside Industrial Park is off the A548/A550, two miles from the end of the M56.
