Commercial property consultancy Kirkby Diamond has announced the delivery of a new regional headquarters for a Bedfordshire-based logistics firm.
Known as The Crossing, developer Brickhill Construction completed the 53,346sq ft warehouse/distribution unit which also includes 1,033 sq ft of office space.
Luke Tillison, Partner and Head of Commercial Agency and Industrial at Kirkby Diamond, said: “The Crossing is a high quality new warehouse, in a location that is ideal for logistics requirements. We are delighted to have been able to conclude the letting on behalf of the private owner, very close to quoting rent. This further enforces the view that we have had for some time about Leighton Buzzard, that this area with good road links is currently an untapped gem.”
The Crossing deal illustrates Leighton Buzzard’s growing popularity as a logistics location following the completion of junction 11a of the M1, which provides mainly dual carriageway access within a short drive time.
Luke added: “Following the construction of junction 11a of the M1, Leighton Buzzard has become a highly viable location for logistics firms and we are seeing a lot of interest in both small and larger sized accommodation that becomes available.”
