Buccleuch Property has completed a forward sale of its £11.3m Axion Building in Belvedere to Orchard Street Investment Management, who were acting on behalf of St James’s Place UK Plc.
In conjunction with Wrenbridge Land, Buccleuch acquired the site unconditionally in March 2017 and obtained planning permission for a standalone 68,072 sq ft industrial development in July this year. The Grade A warehouse is ideally situated in close proximity to the Docklands, Central London and the M25 making it strategically placed for both regional and urban distribution. Existing occupiers within close proximity to the site include Amazon, Ocado, Asda, Tesco and Lidl.
The high quality development is designed to deliver a BREEAM “Very Good” rating and its combination of low running costs and high environmental sustainability is likely to make it very attractive to potential occupiers. Works at the Axion building are due to start in December with practical completion expected by Summer 2018.
Neil Finnie of Buccleuch Property, said: “We are delighted to finalise the sale of the Axion site to Orchard Street Investment Management and look forward to delivering the development. The site will further cement Belvedere as a key industrial location in South East London and will help to address an acute shortage of high quality industrial accommodation in the area.”
Ewen MacLeod of Wrenbridge, said: “This is the latest success in warehouse deals in the South East. Now the hard work begins in actually delivering the building which will start this December.”
