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, 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.
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 Kitchens was advised on the deal by commercial property partner Sarah Ratcliffe and commercial property solicitor Katherine Anderson from Yorkshire law firm Gordons.
