The project was brought forward by St Francis Group, a UK-based property development and investment group and an expert in brownfield development.

The seven-acre scheme – to be marketed as Parallel 113 – is situated off the A4038 Darlaston Road and sits at the heart of the UK’s leading supply chain centres within easy access of junctions 9 and 10 of the M6.

The development is to be developed speculatively, with site clearance work staring in January and the unit is planned to be ready for occupation in the spring of 2022.

St Francis says it will be developed to a high quality, grade A standard and incorporate 107,350sq ft warehouse/logistics accommodation together with 5,650sq ft of first floor office accommodation.

It will feature 12.5m clear internal working height, 10 dock level doors, two-level access, 50m-depth secure fenced yard together with 101 car parking spaces and 98 HGV trailer parking spaces.

St Francis development director Gareth Williams said: “This is a significant commitment to Walsall, the Black Country Enterprise Zone and to the greater Birmingham area. It shows our faith in the continued occupier story of increasing demand seen against dwindling stock and we expect to be delivering another high-quality scheme very soon."

Savills and JLL have been jointly appointed to market the site.
