Redsun secures approval for 50,000 sq ft Knowsley shed

Known as Hub50, the warehouse will be developed off South Boundary Road at the borough’s business park.

Redsun Projects will appoint a contractor imminently, with an expected start date later this year.

Hub50 will be built on a three-acre site that was acquired from Knowsley Borough Council following the successful delivery of the first phase.

Phase one, also acquired from the Council, comprises a 50,000 sq. ft. trade counter scheme on a three-acre site immediately adjacent to Hub50. This phase of the development is now fully let, with tenants including Howdens Joinery and SCIS.

Permission for the one unit employment development on the vacant site was issued by Knowsley Council’s planning department, via a delegated decision.

The unit will be built with service yards, 97 car park spaces, cycle and waste storage, landscaping, and a widened existing access point off Gale Road at Knowsley Business Park.

Ground floor level will be used for warehouse space and the first floor will accommodate offices, according to the plans.

Other infrastructure will include a fenced and gated yard, car parking spaces, motorcycle parking space, cycle storage, refuse stores, and soft landscaping around the site.

 Nick Wightman, director at Redsun, said: “With phase one of this development now fully let, the strong interest in this strategic site speaks for itself.

“We’re pleased have the continued backing of the local planning authority and look forward to bringing Hub50 to life speculatively.”

AEW Architects has led on the project team which includes Langton Development Services, Link Engineering, E3P, TPM Landscape, Muir Associates, KGA, Synergy, and Mode Transport.

B8 and Cushman & Wakefield are joint letting agents for the scheme.
