SEGRO launches 221,000 sq ft speculative development in Enfield
Launch of SEGRO Park Enfield follows success of Navigation Park and SEGRO launches jobs brokerage initiative, to create sustainable local workforce
Following the successful leasing of Navigation Park, SEGRO has launched a new speculative industrial development in Enfield, North London.
Over 40 agents attended the launch of SEGRO Park Enfield yesterday, ahead of construction starting at the 221,000 sq ft development this summer.
SEGRO Park Enfield will support up to 410 jobs when fully-occupied and SEGRO has launched a joint initiative with Enfield Council to help businesses based there identify and recruit local people. The job brokerage scheme, which will also involve local colleges and Job Centre Plus, will create a sustainable local workforce by providing training and skills tailored to the needs of companies based at the site.
Located within easy reach of the M25 and A406 (North Circular), SEGRO Park Enfield will provide best-in-class warehouse facilities of 48,330 sq ft, 64,590 sq ft, and 107,880 sq ft.
Enfield is ideally located for last mile delivery, with 331,000 inhabitants and 12,320 businesses within the borough.
The units are configured to provide maximum flexibility for companies across a range of industries including manufacturing, logistics, food & beverage, trade, data centres and pharmaceutical. SEGRO has also incorporated a number of innovative specifications including photovoltaic panels, LED lighting and electric car charging points, alongside generous parking.
The scheme is EPC A with an aspiration to achieve EPC A+ carbon neutral like Navigation Park, London’s first carbon neutral industrial scheme, which was completed speculatively by SEGRO in Enfield in 2016. Navigation Park is fully let to UK Mail, Camden Brewery and Caesarstone, manufacturers of stone surfaces.
Alan Holland, Business Unit Director for Greater London at SEGRO, said:
“The interest shown for SEGRO Park Enfield highlights the strong demand for quality industrial space in this part of London and helped us decide to deliver the scheme speculatively. We are incorporating a number of energy efficient specifications to reduce the environmental impact and make units more cost-effective for companies to occupy
“The scheme will welcome 410 jobs and we are already seeing strong demand for the space ahead of construction starting this summer and look forward to bringing more jobs to the local area.”
