Goodman launches new large-scale logistics development in Bedford
02 August 2019
Goodman has launched its 45-acre Bedford Commercial Park, with construction of Bedford 405 now complete and available for occupation.
At over 405,000 sq ft, the warehouse is the largest logistics property to come to the market in the South East this year, says the firm, and reflects strong demand for strategically-located space along the southern M1 corridor, Bedford, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.
Nigel Dolan, development director at Goodman, said: “Bedford 405 is part of Goodman’s ongoing commitment to invest in prime locations that connect our customers with their consumer bases more effectively, efficiently and sustainably. The high specification development will provide businesses with an opportunity to develop their presence at the heart of both the UK and the Oxford-Cambridge growth corridor, benefitting from proximity to London, Cambridge and Milton Keynes, alongside key roads, airports and ports.”
Bedford 405 has a 15m clear internal height, with the cross-docked unit offering customers flexibility and operational efficiency, combined with 18,500 sq ft of high specification office space.
The wider development, which is being delivered in partnership with Bedford Borough Council, will see the delivery of a mix of industrial, distribution and business space, creating up to 1,600 local jobs.
