CORE 3 – 160,562 SQFT Completes one month ahead of schedule – 14.01.19
HODGETTS ESTATES have completed works on the second building at their flagship CORE 42 Tamworth development scheme. The Core 3 building of 160,562 sqft was built to an ultra prime grade specification including 12m to underside of haunch, 14 dock level loading doors, 2 level access loading doors, 50 m deep yard and 2 storey office accommodation.
Core 42 is a prime Midland’s location adjacent to Birch Coppice and benefits from being within 0.5 miles of Maritime Transport’s state-of-the-art Birmingham Intermodal Freight Terminal (BIFT) and 0.5 miles from Junction 10 M42 near Tamworth.
In an increasingly popular logistics market, the Midlands remains high in demand as a location for both big box warehouse and small urban logistics assets. Core 3 has received strong interest from occupiers and is expected to let soon.
Edward Hodgetts, Development Director at Hodgetts Estates, adds: “We’re delighted to improve on the original construction programme by a whole month, especially as the period included a 3 week industry shut down for Christmas. As a business we have successfully delivered in excess of 275,000 SQFT over the last 18 months with a value in excess of £30m.”
