Clowes Developments has reached practical completion at plots 10B and 3A at Dove Valley Park, Foston, as part of a multi-million-pound property deal with Hines.

Clowes lead contractor Roe Developments built the stand-alone units 10B (152,466 sq ft) and 3A (110,292 sq ft) as part of their 1.36m sq ft portfolio with global real estate investment and management firm Hines.

The 10B unit is on the southern side of the business park, while the 3A unit is on the northern side, adjacent to GXO.

The new commercial units, designed by IMA Architects, feature single-story warehouses with office and welfare spaces split over two floors at the front of the buildings.

Each unit includes a large yard with level-access loading bays and docks.

Marc Freeman, director at Clowes Developments said: “Clowes are pleased to deliver the last two units for Hines’ growing portfolio in the East Midlands and now look forward to delivering the ‘final phase’ of development at Dove Valley

“Clowes together with IMA Architects have recently submitted a planning application to South Derbyshire District Council for the 35.29-acre site creating over half a million square feet of employment space for B2, B8, with ancillary E(g) use. Four units of varying sizes will be created to meet market demand for quality industrial space, along with the necessary associated hard and soft landscaping, car parking and infrastructure.

“In addition, a new innovation centre will be created that will serve as a central hub for all businesses in the local vicinity. The aim is to draw people together and provide spaces for gatherings, along with informal meeting space and access to external areas. The Innovation Centre will also serve as a space for start-up businesses to begin and has been developed in consultation with The University of Derby.”
