Planning permission has just been granted for CentrePoint at Burgess Hill – a brand new 50,200 sq ft detached high bay industrial, warehouse or logistics building. Strategically located on the A23 corridor between London and Brighton, CentrePoint forms part of the well-known Victoria Business Park, a high quality employment area within the Gatwick Diamond. The A23 is three miles, via the A2300 Burgess Hill link road. CentrePoint is located within walking distance of Burgess Hill town centre and mainline railway station.
CentrePoint will be constructed to a high specification, with features including a 12 metre eaves height, multiple loading doors, and secure yard plus 69 car parking spaces. The building will include offices of 6,350 sq ft, incorporating comfort cooling/heating, passenger lift and LED lighting. There is the opportunity for additional office content if required.
The planning permission allows for 24-hour use for B1/B2/B8 uses. The developer, award-winning Hargreaves Group, based in Rustington, West Sussex will construct the building on a pre-let basis, to form part of their 3 million square foot South Coast property portfolio. Other recent schemes undertaken include the 20-acre Hamilton Business Park at Southampton and the eight-acre Havant Retail and Trade Park in Havant, located mid-way between Portsmouth & Chichester.
Enquiries for CentrePoint are invited from prospective tenants on the basis of a pre-let for a term to be agreed at an indicative quoting rental of £11.50 per sq ft, per annum exclusive, subject to final specification. CentrePoint can be delivered within 9 months of exchange of contracts.
Richard Andrew Managing Director of Hargreaves Group commented: “This is an exciting opportunity for an occupier to secure a prestigious new building with very high cubic capacity in a very accessible location within the South East region. The aim is to provide a high specification building at an attractive competitive rental, deliverable by our company who have a proven track record of delivering similar projects within a short time frame, having full planning permission, a professional team already in place and cash available to construct the project straight away.”
