Green light for 87,600 sq ft extension to Albion Gateway

St Modwen's Albion Gateway

St Modwen has received planning permission to complete the final phase of development at its 130,000 sq ft Albion Gateway site in Burton-upon-Trent.

East Staffordshire Borough Council has granted consent to the 87,600 sq ft scheme, which will include a number of industrial and trade units ranging from 2,500 sq ft up to 5,775 sq ft, with the option to combine units for larger companies seeking up to 20,000 sq ft of space. The previous phase of more than 50,000 sqft was developed in 2016 and all the units were either sold or leased shortly after completion, with occupiers including Tool Station, Eurocell and A-Plant.

Some 13,000 sq ft of the newly consented space has already been pre-let to MKM Building Supplies and 9,000 sq ft has been pre-sold to Burton-based Door and Joinery Solutions.

Work on the final phase will begin in July, with the units expected to be completed in early 2019.
