Speculative development completed in South Yorkshire


Wilton Developments has announced that its latest speculative unit at Enterprise 36 Business Park in Barnsley is now complete and ready for immediate occupation.

The four-unit scheme is strategically located at Junction 36 of the M1 in South Yorkshire, from which approximately a quarter of the UK’s population are within a two-hour drive.

The newly completed 77,800 sq ft Unit 2, which was supported by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council comes after Wilton handed over two new units to William Rowland and DURA ID Solutions respectively after which were acquired off-plan and completed in March 2020.

Jason Stowe, Managing Director of Wilton Developments, said: “Enterprise 36 has been a successful scheme and we are delighted to offer the latest unit to the market. We were pleased to deliver units 3 & 4 to William Rowland and Dura ID Solutions off-plan and subsequently develop the latest unit on a speculative basis”.

Councillor Tim Cheetham, Barnsley Council’s Cabinet Spokesperson for Place (Regeneration and Culture), added: “Our highly successful Property Investment Fund was established to work proactively with the private sector to provide first-class commercial developments for growing local companies and inward investors at key locations throughout the borough. Enterprise 36 is a perfect example of what can be achieved by doing so.

“Our award-winning Enterprising Barnsley Team is available to provide comprehensive business support to companies interested in occupying this excellent facility”.

CPP and CBRE have been appointed to market the development.

Toby Vernon, Partner at CPP, said: “Unit 2 is a very high-quality building in a sought-after location and we are already seeing a good level of enquiries from occupiers. The demand for modern units such as this remains strong and this unit will cater well for local and regional occupiers”.

Mike Baugh, Senior Director at CBRE added: “It’s great to be involved with Enterprise 36 where Wilton have delivered very impressive scheme. Unit 2 offers a fantastic opportunity to rent or purchase a high-quality unit in a prime location.”
