Property investor and developer SEGRO has launched a second speculative industrial development in Enfield, following the successful leasing of Navigation Park in 2017.
SEGRO Park Enfield was launched on 1 May, ahead of construction starting at the 20,532sq m development this summer.
The estate will support up to 410 jobs when fully occupied, with SEGRO launching a joint initiative with Enfield Council to help businesses identify and recruit local people. The job brokerage scheme, which will also involve local colleges and Job Centre Plus, aims to create a sustainable local workforce by providing training and skills tailored to the needs of companies based at the site.
The units will be built to accommodate a range of industries, including manufacturing, logistics, food and drink, trade, data centres and pharmaceutical and aim to attain the same level of carbon neutrality as Navigation Park, which is fully let to UK Mail, Camden Brewery and stone surface manufacturer Caesarstone.
Alan Holland, business unit director for Greater London at SEGRO, said: "The interest shown for SEGRO Park Enfield highlights the strong demand for quality industrial space in this part of London and helped us decide to deliver the scheme speculatively. We are incorporating a number of energy efficient specifications to reduce the environmental impact and make units more cost-effective for companies to occupy.
"The scheme will welcome 410 jobs and we are already seeing strong demand for the space ahead of construction starting this summer and look forward to bringing more jobs to the local area."
