Work starts on redevelopment of industrial park

Mercia Real Estate has started work on the redevelopment of an industrial park in Wednesbury.

A detailed planning application for GWS trading estate on Leabrook Road was approved last year.

The project will see the demolition of existing buildings and construction of a new 6,100 sq. m. commercial unit. The property will comprise a single Grade A distribution warehouse totalling 65,000 sq. ft. incorporating ground and first floor ancillary office accommodation.

Samuel Clark, CEO of Mercia Real Estate, said: “The commencement of the construction of this building in a prime black country location is testament to our confidence in the local market where there remains a lack of new build accommodation.

“When this building completes in December this year, we expect it to be one of only a handful of new mid-box buildings available across the whole of the black county where there remains significant demand from local occupiers.”
