Clowes Developments’ Paul Shanley has achieved a detailed planning consent for a 10,000 sq ft two storey office block at EMDC, Castle Donington.
The build will allow for either entire or split occupancy across the two floors at 5,000 sq ft each on either a Leasehold or freehold basis.
The standalone plot of 0.6 acres sits directly opposite Redrow Homes’ head office with a design which will mirror the external aesthetics.
With many businesses re-evaluating their future requirements for office space, this build could allow a business to down size to accommodate fewer staff working from the office environment on a day to day basis whilst still providing a first class facility for meetings, staff welfare, flexible working arrangements and convenience.
The unit also presents an option for investors who are seeking an opportunity to be part of an already successful business park. With the 2m sq ft M&S distribution centre, Redrow homes Regional head office, Moran logistics and many more making EMDC their home, this building would make a quality investment for the smaller Pension Fund or SIPP.
Paul Shanley, Director at Clowes Developments, said: “With excellent links to the UK’s main arterial motorway (M1), close proximity to the East Midlands Airport for commercial passenger and logistical flights, and a stone’s throw away from the newly developed East Midlands Parkway railway station, EMDC is an excellent spot for businesses looking to relocate.
“This combined with our experience of building quality developments across the UK makes this particular build ideal for occupiers looking for a prestigious office and investors looking for a small pension fund opportunity.”
With a planning consent obtained, the offices can be built for occupation by the end of 2021.
