Ascot Drive in vogue after a brace of property deals

Commercial property consultancy Innes England has secured lets on two units at Osmaston Park industrial estate in Derby, acting solely on the letting of 1 Ascot Drive, and, in conjunction with Birmingham-based agent GVA Grimley, on the letting of a 22,000 sq ft unit on Dunstall Park Road just off Ascot Drive.

Fashion outlet Bella Dame has taken a newly refurbished 13,500 sq ft unit on Ascot Drive, while the Plumb Centre in Dunstan Park Road has been sub-let on behalf of Wolseley to Guardian Building Products.

Stuart Waite, associate director at Innes England in Derby, said: “These are two sizeable deals on a well-established industrial estate which has, over recent years, transformed itself into a popular trade and retail location to the south of the city, and we are very pleased to have agreed terms on both units.

“While still an excellent location for industrial and logistics operators, Ascot Drive and its surrounds are now home to a number of national trade counter and retail warehouse operators who benefit from the busy nature of the road, which provides a link between London Road and Osmaston Road – two major arterial routes in the city centre. There are a number of big names here including B&M Stores, Dunelm and Go Outdoors, so it was the perfect fit for both Bella Dame and Guardian Building Products.”

Osmaston Park Industrial Estate is accessible from Pride Park, the A52, the Derby Outer Ring Road and the A50.
