A major new mixed-use industrial development had been announced by the award-winning Coventry commercial property specialist, Bromwich Hardy.
Forming part of the ambitious £1billion-valued Stanton Cross scheme, Bromwich Hardy and Drake Commercial are set to market the upcoming mixed-use ‘Station Island’ development – a vast and expansive scheme in the Northamptonshire town of Wellingborough which will create more than 3,000 new jobs, open up over 1.5 million sq ft of commercial space and see the building of 3,750 new homes and new community facilities.
The Station Island scheme will also include a new platform for the town’s railway station, making it a regionally-significant transport hub.
Commenting on the development Bromwich Hardy partner Michelle Mills said Station Island would be a ‘flagship development’, adding: “Outline planning permission has already been obtained for a wide variety of commercial and residential uses at Station Island, which will undoubtedly be the premiere development of its kind in the region,” Michelle said.
“The location, transport links and infrastructure will all be first-class – St Pancras is less than an hour away on the train – and the development will create an unrivalled business environment which will be a beacon of excellence.
“Station Island provides the key link between Wellingborough town centre and Stanton Cross and provides a range of exciting development opportunities for both retail and employment uses.
“An incredible amount of work has already gone into getting these plans to this stage and the potential of the site is truly enormous. We are delighted to finally be able to offer the site to market and expect a huge interest.”
The site is split into four areas – the Station District, Mill Lane Quarter, Northern Neighbourhood and Employment Village, with each having its own identity.
Station District will be a diverse development with a rich mix of complementary uses concentrated around Wellingborough Station and its new facilities and parking, whilst the Mill Lane Quarter will be an inspiring mixed-use area drawing upon the rich cultural heritage of Mill Lane and distinctive character of the Round House Building.
The Northern Neighbourhood will be a flourishing community of starter, family, and later living homes, with opportunities for serviced offices and co-working hubs, local commercial services and leisure facilities to be integrated within the fabric of the development.
Meanwhile the Employment Village will be a thriving place to work, conveniently situated close to bus and rail links, within walking distance of Wellingborough and Stanton Cross, and benefitting from the Country Park on its doorstep.
Outline planning permission has been granted for a range of uses including Offices; B2 Light industrial; B8 Storage, C1 Hotel and more.
Both Birmingham and Luton airports are around an hour’s drive from the site which is located close to key transport links including the A45, A14 and M1 motorway.
