An 18-acre slice of Birmingham’s main logisitics site is to be transformed into a wholesale fruit and vegetable market.
The site at the Hub, one of a handful of large logistics development opportunities in Birmingham, will see a 240,000 sq ft facility built for the markets.
IM Properties has won planning consent for the development at the The Hub in Witton, which has the capacity to provide over 1.6 million sq ft of logistics space and create over 2,100 employment opportunities.
The property will be complete by late 2016 and the markets will move from their existing Pershore Street base.
IM Properties are speculatively developing a further 110,230 sq ft at the Hub site.
The Hub is situated on Nobel Way, close to Junction 6 of the M6 and the A38.
Existing occupiers at The Hub include Laidlaw Interiors, IMI, Timet, and Iron Mountain.
IM Properties were advised by Savills, Knight Frank and CBRE, who act as joint agents on the scheme.
