Wilton Developments has completed the £5m Connex 45 development at Thornes Farm in the Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone and the site is almost full with tenants, leaving only 1 available 30,000 sq ft unit.
Situated on a four acre site close to the East Leeds Link Road, Wilton Developments’ Connex 45 includes a 50,000 sq ft and 30,000 sq ft manufacturing and logistics buildings in the Leeds Aire Valley.
JPG worked alongside Leeds based Wilton Developments, Shipley-based Stainforth Construction, Leeds based KPP Architects and Leeds based Rex Proctor & Partners who were the Employer Agent and Quantity Surveyors on the project to complete the project by July 2015.
The Enterprise Zone comprises 142 hectares of prime employment land adjacent to the M1 motorway and is an ideal location for manufacturing and supply chain companies. Fully developed, it has the ability to foster more than 9,500 jobs. It is already home to well-established manufacturers such as packaging company, Roberts Mart, floor covering specialist, Mercardo and Symington’s food.
