First speculative build since 2008

Work starts on the West Edinburgh Business Park.

A 1.69 hectare business development on the western periphery of the capital - the first speculative industrial development of its kind in the city since 2008.

Phase One will provide 26,264sq ft of modern industrial accommodation in two terraces with unit sizes from 3,283 sq ft upwards with consent for Class 4 (Business), Class 5 (General Industrial) and Class 6 (Storage and Distribution) space, including an allowance for twenty per cent of the floor area to be used for trade and retail sales. These units are due for completion in Autumn 2014. Design & build opportunities are also available on Phases 2 and 3 of the development.

West Edinburgh Business Park, situated on the south side of South Gyle Crescent, is being developed by J. Smart & Co. (Contractors) PLC, on the former Pentad site in West Edinburgh. Each unit in the development will benefit from a specification including power floated concrete floors, profiled metal sheet roofing incorporating approximately 10% translucent light panels, and a generous secure communal loading yard, with allocated parking bounded by metal palisade fencing and security gates. Jones Lang LaSalle and Burns and Shaw are joint agents for the park.
