SPACE STATION TO OPEN NEW BIRMINGHAM SITES
Self-storage firm Space Station has signed a brace of deals for new facilities.
A vacant 69,154 sq ft warehouse on a 2.4-acre site in Garretts Green Lane, Birmingham, has been acquired by the company. This joins land on Castle Bromwich Trade Park, in Chester Road, where a new 12,000 sq ft, five-storey building is being constructed.
The two new units take Space Station’s nationwide portfolio up to 18, seven of which are in the Midlands, and six new jobs will be created at the pair of new facilities.
Head of real estate Stephen Wilson said: “We’re thrilled to have secured this latest site at Garretts Green. Work will begin on this in June to deliver a 95,000 sq ft facility made up of an extensive range of self-storage units. The Castle Bromwich site is due to open in August.”
Kenny Allan, director at property consultancy KWB, secured the two deals.
He added: “Both the Castle Bromwich and Garretts Green sites were vacant so it’s great to see them being put back into use. They are both in excellent locations close to Birmingham city centre and the motorway networks, with great roadside visibility.”
