Dawsongroup starts first Super Site

Bristol, UK: Dawsongroup has acquired the first plot at Delta Properties’ Central Park extension, Bristol for its first regional “super site” .

Delta Properties is selling the next phase of its landholdings in Bristol. Dawsongroup has purchased the first plot of just over 6 acres.

Freya Dawson, group property director, said: “After four years of searching for the right site in Avonmouth, we are thrilled to have completed on this purchase with Delta Properties. Opening our first “super site” is a big step for Dawsongroup and will create a Western hub for numerous businesses within the group.”

Michael Shebson, Delta Properties said: “ We are already on site putting in the road and utilities infrastructure for the first 50 acre phase, which will be finished before the end of the year.”

“The land benefits from the same planning consents as those at Central Park; there is a particularly strong market for smaller plots, especially from owner-occupiers, for open storage type uses. We are in discussions with a number of other potential occupiers and expect to announce more deals shortly. We have strong interest in the remaining plots.”

Central Park, Bristol is a 350 acre national logistics hub, bordering the M49 in Avonmouth. Existing occupiers include the Range, Amazon, Lidl, Davies Turner, DHL, Farmfoods and Chep UK.
