Work to begin on 95,000 sq ft storage hub after double deal

Property agency KWB has completed a double deal with self-storage business Space Station.

A vacant 69,154 sq ft warehouse, situated on a 2.43-acre on Garretts Green Lane in Birmingham has been sold to the firm, which it will use to deliver a 95,000 sq ft facility with work starting on the scheme in June.

The news follows the completion of a land sale at Castle Bromwich Trade Park on Chester Road, where construction of a 12,000 sq ft, five-storey building is close to completion.

The two new units take Space Station’s nationwide portfolio up to 18, seven of which are in the Midlands. Six jobs are expected to be created at the facilities, which will offer storage for personal and business needs on a long and short-term basis.

Kenny Allan, director at KWB’s industrial agency said: “Both the Castle Bromwich and Garretts Green sites were vacant so it’s great to see them being put back into use.

“They are both in excellent locations close to Birmingham city centre and the motorway networks, with great roadside visibility.”

The self-storage specialist is investing heavily into an expansion programme since it was acquired by global real estate investment firm, Heitman in October 2020.
