Mark Coxon, head of commercial property services at Caxtons, the Kent based chartered surveyors, has confirmed that he has completed on the let of two new distribution units at Access Park Aylesford.
Mark said: “Securing these deals in this dynamic commercial area is very gratifying. Both new tenants are keen to commence their tenancies as soon as possible and we are sure that each will contribute to and bring benefit to the area.”
In Kent, the number of economically active people aged 16 to 64 has grown steadily in recent years. The employment rate for males (78.2%) is above the national average of 77.0% and the employment rate for females (67.1%) is slightly above the national average of 66.4%.
Units, 2A and 2C completed within a week of one another and each is an end property in a terrace of three. They are strategically located 1.5 miles from Junction 4 of the M20, with links to the Kent ports and national motorway network, so ideally positioned for all onward routes.
New tenant and distributor of car parts and accessories, Euro Car Parts Ltd, operates from more than 200 locations across the UK and Ireland, and has now acquired the 27,191 sq ft unit, 2A, on new full repairing and insuring lease for a period of 15 years.
The larger unit, 2C, is 34,853 sq ft, and has been let to incoming tenant Priory Business Group plc, a print management company dealing with print from initial design to production, storage, fulfilment and distribution. It has been secured on a new full repairing and insuring lease for 10 years.
All of the units have 9m ceiling height, up to 40m yard depth, fully fitted offices with comfort cooling and heating systems, raised floors, lighting, carpets and a kitchenette, secure fenced yards and car parks.
The landlord is Merseyside Pension Fund.
