Stoford completes speculative unit at Worcester Six
Work has completed on a speculative unit at the popular Worcester Six Business Park, commercial property developer Stoford has announced.
Cabot 38, which comprises 34,000 sq ft of flexible commercial space and 4,073 sq ft of offices, has been specified to suit a range of occupiers and has E(g), B2 and B8 planning consent.
The unit, adjacent to ZwickRoell and Kimal, benefits from photovoltaic roof panels and has achieved an EPC A rating. Overall, Worcester Six has a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’.
Edward Peel, Director at Stoford, said: “We are delighted to have completed the building, which has been funded by international private equity real estate firm Cabot Properties. The unit is our tenth at Worcester Six. It has been completed to an extremely high specification and is already attracting interest from potential tenants.”
“Our significant investment in Worcester Six over the past few years has led to the creation of a high-quality business park that has attracted a number of world-class businesses to the region,” he said. “I’ve no doubt the quality of Cabot 38 will ensure another ambitious company will want to play its part in this success story.
“Not only is it a success story for local business and enterprise, it is also good news from an environmental point of view as we are safeguarding the valuable green space and preserving the rich, diverse wildlife there. We’re proud to be delivering on our environmental remit, too.”
Stoford has worked with Worcestershire’s Green Infrastructure (GI) Partnership to create a long-term GI Concept Plan, which will see the developer putting aside 6.55ha of the site for natural habitats and landscaping, in addition to on-plot landscaping.
