LGP secures planning for 77,000 sq ft warehouse in Bracknell.

02 January 2013

Legal & General Property (LGP), on behalf of its Linked Life Fund, announces that it has achieved planning consent for a new 77,000 sq ft single warehouse unit on Lovelace Road, Bracknell, which has been named Lovelace Park.

LGP is seeking pre-let opportunities for the site.  The warehouse unit will include ancillary office space and a secure service yard.  Located on a 3.88 acre site on Lovelace Road in the Southern Industrial area of Bracknell, Lovelace Park benefits from excellent transport links, including easy access to Junction 10 of the M4.  The site was previously occupied by Honeywell.  Nearby occupiers include Waitrose, BMW, Panasonic, Hyundai and Fujitsu.  

Craig Westmacott, Senior Fund Manager of the Linked Life Fund at Legal & General Property, comments:  “We are excited to be able to offer to the market a high quality warehouse pre-let opportunity in the heart of Bracknell’s strategic industrial area that meets the demands of international and local businesses alike.”

Vail Williams and Strutt & Parker are advising on the scheme.
