21 Apr Deichmann-Shoes UK Ltd agree lease for a brand new 162,500sq ft purpose-built facility at Corby
Centrix Business Park located off Phoenix Parkway, Corby attracts major retailer to the site. Europe’s largest footwear retailer, Deichmann has agreed a lease for a purpose built 162,500sq ft warehouse with ancillary offices with site owners and developers, Clowes Developments.
Centrix Business Park forms part of Corby’s new regeneration framework and comprises a 39-acre (15.8 hectare) development that is suitable for “Built to Suit” industrial / warehouse opportunities.
The commercial lease agreement marks significant inward investment for the area as the retailer places their brand-new UK distribution facility in Corby. The retailer will retain their head office in neighbouring Market Harborough positioning themselves strategically to benefit from excellent location and direct access to major UK transport networks.
James Richards Development Director at Clowes Developments commented,
“Securing another major occupier for the scheme in Corby is a great result. The scope of the building and its high-spec delivery will, without doubt, add considerable value to the ongoing regeneration aspirations for this town. Bringing a household names such as Deichmann and BakeAway to Centrix Park are lines in the sand marking the bright new future for the former brownfield site.”
Chris Holden, Director at Deichmann commented,
“We are continuing to expand our presence in the UK both online and opening new High Street stores. This development will enhance that expansion and enable us to improve service levels across the business. We believe Corby is a great location for our UK warehouse, being close to the centre of our store network and providing a skilled workforce for logistics operations.”
Budworth Hardcastle (01536 483400) acted for Deichmann in negotiating the acquisition and are retained in a project monitoring role and the project management of the fit out.
The two plots located opposite Deichmann (Plot A2 and A3) have serious interest from occupiers and investors alike with announcements due in the coming weeks. There remains limited availability at the recently completed Omega Court for trade counter/warehouse/distribution requirements.
