The £10 million speculative development of a former DIY store in Daventry has reached practical completion just as retailers add extra floorspace for Christmas and a potential winter lockdown.
Christian Smith, director at Savills, said: “Completion of the unit is perfectly timed given the strong increase in warehouse demand we have seen in the first six months of the year. This reflects the increasing move online and this unit is perfectly placed to take advantage with great access to the M1, Birmingham and the South East.”
The warehouse is at Drayton Fields, half a mile from the A45, leading to J18 of the M1 around 6.5 miles away. Major occupiers nearby include Amazon, Tesco, Ford, Wincanton and Cummings.
