Two large premium-quality warehouse units totalling approximately 50,000 sq ft are being built in Reliant Close and are set for completion this October after planning permission was granted by Eastleigh Borough Council.
South Coast commercial property specialists at Lambert Smith Hampton and Warwick Martel are acting on behalf of the landlord, Store Property Investments Limited, as joint agents for the development, which has been named “Reliant”.
The development, made possible after Carlsberg relocated from the site last year, is specifically designed to provide high-quality units for the logistics and distribution sector.
The largest warehouse, covering approximately 40,230 sq ft, will feature dock-level and level-access loading doors, making it highly suitable for inward and outward goods transfer. It will also include a 1.65-acre secure yard and first-floor offices.
The smaller unit, covering 9,370 sq ft, will feature level-access loading doors and modern office facilities on the ground floor and will feature 39 parking spaces.
Adrian Whitfield, Industrial and Logistics Director for the South Coast offices at LSH, said: “This is a significant new high-quality development at the already well-established Chandler’s Ford Industrial Estate, with potential to create up to 100 new jobs.
“The logistics and warehousing sector continues to grow in the south and this scheme is a reflection of that trend as more consumer spending moves online.
“The larger warehouse is particularly attractive because of its dock and level-access loading facilities, which make it ideal for busy logistics and distribution operations.
“Chandler’s Ford continues to be a highly desirable location for business, partly due to its excellent infrastructure with easy links to the M27, M3 and Southampton Airport.”
Ross Moyler, Director at Store Property Investments, said: “The work at Reliant Close is an example of how we like to invest in our property portfolio to attract new occupiers.”
LSH are joint agents for the Reliant scheme with Warwick Martel.
