The new 95,682 square feet (8,889 square metre) warehouse / industrial scheme in the Aston area of Birmingham, acquired by developer Northwood Urban Logistics, has recently completed and no time was wasted in opening the doors to local agents to view the 12 available Units.

Joint marketing agents Gerald Eve and Darby Keye Property were pleased to have agreed lettings on 37% of the space ahead of the launch.

Early occupiers at Birmingham’s Urban Express Park’s will include a major engineering trade counter, a refrigeration specialist and a medical services provider, taking Units 3, 6, 12, 16, 17 and 18, covering a total area of 31,964 sq ft (2,970 sq m). They will be joining a number of well-known national brands nearby, including Howdens, Rexel, Royal Mail, Salts Healthcare, DHL and Toolstation.

Just 12 units at Urban Express Park are now remaining, offering a total area of 63,718 sq ft (5,920 sq m); from the smallest – Unit 6 – with a total area 3,370 sq ft (313 sqm), to the largest – Unit 14 – offering 10,160 sq ft (944 sq m). The largest space comprises Units 8-11, offering a combined total area of 18,187 sq ft (1,690 sq m).

The site is strategically located adjacent to Junction 6 of the M6, providing easy access into and out of Birmingham, and is just nine miles from the M42 and 21 miles from the M40, as well as only 35 miles from the M1.

Urban Express Park is ideally situated to serve the city centre and Greater Birmingham area. As well as being only two miles outside Birmingham city centre, it is only a five-minute walk from Aston rail station and just 11 miles from Birmingham Airport. Birmingham Wholesale Market, one of the largest integrated wholesale markets in Europe, is also only five minutes away.

Significantly, Urban Express Park is located outside the Birmingham Clean Air Zone (‘CAZ’), meaning that its occupiers will attract lower additional transport costs – associated with the CAZ charges of £50 per day per HGV – compared to those companies situated within the CAZ.

Chris Keye, Director at Darby Keye Property, said: “The reception of Urban Express Park by both agents and occupiers alike, has been second to none.We’re consistently receiving high volumes of enquiries for the remaining units, with viewings scheduled often daily.

“This response is not only testament to the pent up demand for this type of accommodation in the market place, but also the high quality specification and environment that Urban Express Park offers, together with the unrivalled prime location it benefits from. Being situated within very easy reach of Junction 6 of the M6 motorway and Birmingham City Centre is a significant factor for many new tenants to the scheme.”
