MEPC has added an 82,500 square feet speculative industrial and high-tech unit scheme to its estate at Silverstone Park through the acquisition of the Jordan Technology Park from former Formula 1 team boss and BBC F1 presenter Eddie Jordan.
The 15 units, which are suited to companies in the high performance engineering, manufacturing and technology sectors range in size from 4900 to almost 12,000 sq ft in size and are available for immediate occupation.
MEPC has invested in securing these units to provide much needed stock of space to meet the demand which MEPC has identified since acquiring the land and buildings surrounding the iconic Silverstone track which is the home of British motor sport. This acquisition is in addition to the substantial investment MEPC has recently committed in upgrading the utilities – gas, electricity and water – on the Park ahead of construction.
In the next 10 years MEPC plans to develop the 2.4m sq ft of Silverstone Park into one of the world’s leading clusters for cutting edge and precision engineering companies, ranging from small start-ups to famous brand names. By 2024 it predicts the number of occupiers currently on site will double to more than 100 with the project creating around 4000 jobs.
MEPC Chief Executive James Dipple commented:
“The Jordan units provide another very valuable asset to Silverstone Park. They are new, extremely well built and are very versatile. The fact that we already have a lot of interest illustrates that people are rightly very excited about the new business cycle and these units really provide an opportunity for growing companies.
“With new landscaping and signage works imminent – all aimed at significantly enhancing the arrival experience for visitors – the Jordan units will become a very important part of Silverstone Park.
“They are ideal for precision engineering companies and race teams – therefore the time is absolutely right for those looking to expand and take advantage of the whole buzz surrounding the new Silverstone Park development to come and talk to us.”
