Bespoke buildings of up to 450,000 sq ft are available now at Hinckley Park, Leicestershire.

Developed and owned by IM Properties, the 82-acre site is strategically positioned in one of the region’s premier manufacturing locations. Following the successful disposal of nearly 900,000 sq ft space to two leading international businesses, the remaining 18-acres are now being marketed.

Our director, Andrew McFarlane Holt is leading the marketing for Wells McFarlane. He said: “This is an absolutely unrivalled development opportunity in the region. Hinckley Park is strategically located adjacent to the M69 J1, meaning it is well positioned for access to not just the Midlands’ major cities but also air and rail transport hubs.

“The parcel of land now available is an 18 acre site reserved for B1 and B2 industrial uses. Capable of accommodating up to 450,000 sq ft space, we’re seeking enquiries from manufacturing and industrial businesses of all sizes, to create unique and entirely bespoke premises. The site also benefits from a significant power supply, which is ideal for the end users we’re looking to work with.”

Richard Lawrence, development director at IM Properties says Hinckley Park’s strategic location has been central to its success and initially prompted the company’s investment in a speculatively built 532,000 sq ft unit on the site, now let to a global online retailer. In addition, Hinckley Park is also home to DPD’s £150 million super-hub, which has become Europe’s largest automated parcel depot.

Lawrence said: “Being on the border of the East and West Midlands, the employment park has access to a wide skilled labour force, which was one of the key deciding factors for the major distribution hubs currently on site and one of the reasons DPD located a second hub in the area.

“The scheme is also centrally positioned to benefit from the Midlands’ supply chain, with easy and quick access to a number of the UK’s major car manufacturing plants, making it ideal for creating bespoke facilities for suppliers operating just in time deliveries.”

Hinckley Park is just a short drive from Leicester and Coventry and close to air and rail hubs including BIFT and Hams Hall Railports. IM Properties will be delivering a number of sustainable transport solutions to help labour access the scheme, including a regular bus service to the site and new footways and cycle paths from nearby Hinckley and Burbage.
