The UK’s number one kitchen retailer, Wren Kitchens acquires 3.5 acres at Delta Properties’ Central Park4 Sep 2019
Wren Kitchens has acquired 3.5 acres at Delta Properties’ newly released extension of Central Park, Bristol, at Severn Road in Avonmouth, for its new transport depot.
The deal marks the second sale in this new phase of Delta Properties’ developments in Bristol, advised by Avison Young, following outstanding success in completing Central Park with occupiers including The Range, Amazon, DHL and Lidl.
The first phase of the Severn Road development, comprising just under 50 acres, benefits from the same extant planning consents which are in place at Central Park. The site has full planning consent already granted for open storage or new build warehouse and distribution, meaning no further planning permission is required prior to commencing development.
Wren has purchased a plot of almost 3.5 acres for a new transport depot.
Paul Hobbs, director with Avison Young’s National Industrial and Distribution Team, says, “With the infrastructure programme due for completion at the Severn Road development later this year, potential occupiers continue to be attracted by the imminent opening of the new M49 Junction, and the huge benefits the existing planning consent brings.”
Liam Knaggs, Property Manager at Wren Kitchens, said: “As Wren continues to significantly expand, we are strategically opening transport depots across the UK to ensure our delivery service continues to be economically efficient and first-class. By securing this land with Delta.
Properties, we envisage opening a new transport depot by 2020 which will result in offering several new jobs for the local community.”
Wren delivers over 2,000 kitchens a week to customers across the length and breadth of the UK. This recent investment is part of Wren’s wider growth plans to cater for increased business and to ultimately reduce fuel costs and emissions.
Wren currently has a fleet of over 180 lorries which travel from five depots located in Howden, Barton-upon-Humber, Bristol, Stansted and Larkhall.
Michael Shebson, of Delta Properties said: “We are delighted to welcome Wren as our latest occupier for this next phase of development. They join Dawsongroup Plc who are creating a Western Hub for their group companies.”
Delta Properties announced the first deal at Severn Road with Dawsongroup Plc in July.
Plots ranging from 2 – 10 acres are available for freehold purchase at Central Park Severn Road, Bristol. Contact Paul Hobbs for more information.
