Rockhaven Business CentreA brand new development of 16 industrial/warehouse units on the West Wilts Trading Estate at Westbury has been released.

Rockhaven Business Centre is the first development on the trading estate where units will be available to purchase freehold.

Sizes range from 1,875 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft with quoting prices from £180,000 to £300,000 freehold.

Property consultancy Myddelton & Major has been instructed to market the units. Four are already under offer, with construction just started.

Myddelton & Major partner Philip Holford said: “Rockhaven Business Centre is a 16-unit development with planning consent for B1, B2 and B8 uses and provides brand new, high-quality warehouse/industrial units.

“It is the first new development on the Trading Estate since 2002, so we are expecting strong interest from owner-occupiers as well commercial property investors as it is unique for this estate that there are units available for sale freehold.”

The 16 units are arranged in three blocks with five units of 1,875 sq ft, six of 2,250 sq ft, two of 2,500 sq ft and three at 3,000 sq ft. Each unit has a first-floor mezzanine storage area.
