Shrewsbury Business Park – new office development planned

Cooper Green Pooks of Shrewsbury, selling agents for Alaska Property Group the lead developers of Shrewsbury Business Park report that a Reserved Matters application has just been submitted to Shropshire Council planning department by architects Walker Hay for a new offices scheme close to the Wenlock Road entrance to the Park [SY2 6FG].

Arranged as 3 units the development offers freehold self-contained office buildings with plentiful car parking and designed to incorporate the latest specification for energy efficiency, electric vehicles and ‘smart technology’.  This will give occupiers the maximum flexibility to address workspace requirements brought forward by Covid 19.

One unit has already been sold subject to contract and the agents are in negotiation for a second.  Individual sizes are from 212sq m (gross) and prices from £456,000+VAT. With lower density workspace being the current trend, it is estimated that the scheme could provide accommodation for at least 50 people.

Charles Howell from the selling agents commented ‘We have recently had a number of enquiries for these units ‘off plan’, mainly because Shrewsbury Business Park remains the premier office location for Shropshire.  As such it is very well placed for serving the County and mid Wales thereby reducing the need for longer distance commuting to the West Midlands.’

Alan Hay of Alaska Property added ‘for these brand-new buildings, we are able to incorporate occupier’s requirements for their own internal specification to reflect the latest working trends.’

Subject to contract the buildings are expected to be ready for occupation in late Spring 2021.
