Fortitudo has seen the commencement of works at their most recent commercial development, Churchill Business Park this week with groundworks company Gracelands on site.

The site was acquired in February 2022 and suffered a setback when the original contractor, Woodmace, entered administration.

The news of activity on site is welcome and shows that despite perceived market conditions, the introduction of 48 brand-new, light industrial units has proven very popular amongst purchasers, with Fortitudo seeing more than 30% of Phase 1 already reserved or exchanged. Located on Magna Road, the site gives easy access to the area’s main arterial roads and is due to be built by Autumn 2024.

Please contact Fortitudo at 01202 233279 or sales@fortitudoproperty.com for further information.
