Only two units left at vibrant new commercial development, Maidstone Exchange

10 June 2021

Northwood Urban Logistics is pleased to be working with joint agents JLL and Watson Day Chartered Surveyors to let Units 1 and 5 at Maidstone Exchange – the final two industrial / warehouse units remaining – prominently located on the Parkwood Industrial Estate in Maidstone. Occupiers of the five other units at Maidstone Exchange are JavaHub Ltd, Tructyre Fleet Management Ltd, Tyrepoint Services Ltd, Ipsum Power Ltd and DHW Enterprises Ltd.

Unit 1 comprises a total area of 5,063 square feet, with a warehouse floor of 3,589 square feet and mezzanine floor of 1,474 square feet. Unit 5 covers an area of 6,122 square feet in total, with a warehouse floor of 4,675 square feet and mezzanine floor of 1,447 square feet. Both units are equipped with 6.2-6.4m clear internal height, 37.5kN sq m floor loading, electric loading doors, fitted first floor offices, generous parking facilities, landscaping and 24/7 access. Office accommodation includes carpets, suspended ceilings, with inset LED lighting, air conditioning, WCs and disabled WCs / shower rooms.

Maidstone Exchange is situated in a busy commercial location, adjacent to a large-scale housing development. It already boasts a vibrant mix of occupiers in the area and on the estate, including Mercedes, Nissan, Infiniti, Renault, Big Box Self Storage, Royal Mail, Toolstation, Howdens and Travis Perkins.

The site is strategically located close to Sutton Road (A274), which provides access through to the M20 (J8) towards the East, and the A20 to the North. Maidstone West, Maidstone East, and Bearsted railway stations are all located within four miles of the development, and offer services towards London or Ashford.

Nick Turner, Executive Director, Asset Management at Northwood Investors, said:

“These are now the only two units left at Maidstone Exchange, right at the heart of a thriving, high-quality commercial estate, alongside a number of well-established national brands. The units offer great facilities and connectivity, and are built to an impressive specification – in fact, they are by far the best available within the locality.

“We have been experiencing strong demand, so interested parties are encouraged to arrange a viewing through our agents at the earliest opportunity.”

The scheme ensures a minimum 12% decrease in CO2 emissions over 2010 Buildings Regulations. ‘Green’ initiatives include: low air permeability design; an electric vehicle charging point on Unit 1; 15% warehouse roof lights, increasing natural lighting; high-performance insulated cladding and roof materials; and secure cycle parking.

Richard Turnill, Partner at Watson Day Chartered Surveyors, said:

"Maidstone Exchange has delivered much-needed, high-quality industrial / warehouse accommodation to Park Wood, on the south side of Maidstone. Until Maidstone Exchange was delivered, the most modern development on the estate was Intergra, in 2009.

"The estate provides brand new, efficient warehouse accommodation, with high-specification air-conditioned offices. Modern, environmentally-friendly initiatives, such as electric vehicle charging, large translucent roof lights, increased levels of insulation and secure cycle parking, make the estate desirable for occupiers.

"There is significant residential development occurring in the immediate vicinity of Park Wood – over 2,000 homes have been built recently or are currently under construction within one mile of the estate – which has dramatically increased the potential customer base and job pool for businesses looking to relocate to Maidstone Exchange."
