Construction starts on Wharton Place!

Work has commenced on our new business park in Gainsborough: Wharton Place, which will bring around 50 new jobs to the area.

Once complete, Wharton Place will see the delivery of over 18,500 sq ft of new employment space across 1.3 acres, with a mix of light industrial units in sizes ranging from 1,270 sqft – 2,500 sqft, for a variety of business uses.

Wharton Place is Stirlin’s third commercial development in the area, following the success of Stirlin Place and Willoughton Place.

The site is located on Foxby Lane, adjacent Lincoln County Council’s Business Centre: Mercury House, with excellent access to major road networks.

All ten units on the development will benefit from allocated parking, an electric sectional door, a personnel door and DDA compliant toilet facility, as well as an eaves height of 5 metres to accommodate a mezzanine floor upon request.

Howard Griffith, Stirlin’s Head of Construction, says “We are delighted to commence works on Wharton Place. We’re seeing a continued demand for modern, cost-effective industrial space in the area, which has prompted the commencement.”

“Our investment in the area is a testament to the town’s growing appeal as a thriving place to live, work and invest in. We are pleased to be able to help facilitate the growing local business base and bring new employment space to the area.”

Jamie Thorpe, Chartered Surveyor for Pygott & Crone says, “It’s very positive to see the development of Wharton Place being brought forward by Stirlin, highlighting the continued confidence in this sector. The Stirlin team have already delivered two very successful schemes in this location and it’s clear that Gainsborough has been needing new modern business space to accommodate demand in the region.”

The units are available on a Freehold or Leasehold basis. Interested parties are asked to contact Stirlin on 01522 682752 or their agent, Pygott & Crone on 01522 568822 to enquire.
