Barberry goes for spec development in Birmingham

Developer Barberry is to start a 65,000 sq ft speculative development in Birmingham

The facility is on a 2.9-acre plot at the Advanced Manufacturing Hub in Aston.

Barberry 65 is located immediately adjacent to Junction 6 of the M6 motorway and is due to be completed by the end of Q3 2018.

The company is also currently nearing completion of a 46,000 sq ft industrial unit – known as Barberry46 – at a site on the A34, between Birmingham city centre and Junction 7 of the M6 motorway.

Barberry development director Jon Robinson said: “Birmingham and the West Midlands is in dire need of more high quality industrial space and so we are very pleased to be able to move on to the construction phase at the Advanced Manufacturing Hub.

“The AMH development complements several other schemes that Barberry is delivering within the region. We believe our investment will generate strong demand.”

Savills and JLL are the retained property consultants for Barberry.
