Unit 8 The Bluestone CentreUnit 8 The Bluestone CentreAn industrial unit at the rapidly-filling Bluestone Centre at Amesbury has been acquired by a lift company.

Luna Lifts has taken a five-year lease on Unit 8 at the first new business centre development for more than a decade on the town’s giant 160-acre Solstice Park.

Property consultancy Myddelton & Major brokered a deal for the 1,485 sq ft (137.96 sq m) unit for which the quoting rent was £8,750 per annum.

Myddelton & Major's commercial agency surveyor Gary Mead said: “Luna Lifts is a platform lift specialist which is a supply, installation and maintenance provider for the disabled access market.

“The Andover-headquartered company which provides quality, user friendly, reliable and cost effective solutions to both domestic and commercial markets was seeking new premises and Bluestone proved ideal.”

Luna’s new unit is a mid-terrace, newly-constructed industrial/warehouse unit with full height up and over shutter doors.

It provides workshop/storage space, together with additional mezzanine floor for storage or conversion to office.

Bluestone is the first new business centre development at the strategically-located Solstice Park since the Beacon Centre in 2005 and is significant for employment prospects in Wiltshire with 131,630 people of employment age living within a 30 minute drive.

The 36-unit centre is being developed by Salisbury-based Nationwide Engineering Group with the first phase of 12 completed last year.
