The Hub | Witton | 80 acres | Comp.

From Locate Birmingham:
Quote:
More than 80 acres strategically located between junctions six and seven of the M6 has planning consent for office, production and warehouse and distribution uses. PRUPIM will develop the £150 million scheme funded by Prudential to offer bespoke high bay units built to individual requirements from 40,000 sq ft up to 750,000 sq ft. PRUPIM is speculatively developing a 120,000 sq ft industrial/warehouse unit at The Hub in 2007.

An ideal location for logistics, distribution and production companies , this key site in the centre of Birmingham named ‘The Hub’ has the go ahead to regenerate one of the largest brownfield development sites in the Midlands.

Mike Price of property agents Knight Frank comments: “The Hub is an ideal location for the development of a Regional Distribution Centre for a major logistics operator. The Hub’s proximity to junction six of the M6 places it at the heart of the national motorway network, facilitating excellent communication links with the rest of the country."

Typical Specification

* Steel Portal frame construction
* 50 kn/M2 floor loading
* 1 dock access door per 10,000 sq ft of warehouse
* Fully fitted offices with raised-access floors
* Large yard areas for loading / unloading and lorry parking
* High quality landscaped environment

Security:

* Estate is ring-fenced and movements on and off the site are monitored by security guards at each entrance.

Communications:

* 3 miles from Birmingham city centre
* Less than 2 miles to Junction 6, M6
* 14 miles to Birmingham International Airport
* 119 miles to London
* 167 miles to Felixstowe

At a glance:

* More than 80 acres at the heart of the UK.
* Opportunity to build bespoke warehouse, industrial and production units.
* Site can accommodate a single unit of up to 750,000 sq ft along with a variety of other sizes from 40,000 sq ft.
* A 120,000 sq ft spec-build industrial/warehouse unit is proposed for the site.
* Iron Mountain, the document storage company, is having a 65,000 sq ft bespoke unit constructed by PRUPIM, with expansion room for further development.
*Link to aerial image of site (pdf)
*The Hub website

Masterplan:


This scheme is huge and is vital for Witton which has a rich industrial past. This is on the site of the IMI headquarters.

Don't you mean IMI?

Thanks for the info though, you're right about this being crucial to that part of the city!

It is a big, vital, and impressive development. But, I can't help but feel that a trick has been missed by not building/leaving space to build a small rail freight terminal to serve the site.

Oh, and thanks for doing the thread Erebus555. You do a much more professional job of it that I would have!

With empty rates relief pulled in the new year, I wonder how this might affect speculative shed development. Can't be that encouraging.
