Commercial developer Stoford unveils 18 development projects across the UK

Commercial property developer Stoford has unveiled a 10m sq ft development pipeline for 18 new projects across the UK.

The company said it had a total of 18 industrial and warehouse developments, amounting to 700 acres, capable of delivering 9,675,000 sq ft of commercial space.

The portfolio includes projects in London, Bristol and Bournemouth in the South; Thame, Worcester, Coventry and Wednesbury in the Midlands; and Liverpool, Manchester and Wakefield in the North.

Managing director Dan Gallagher said he expected an “extremely busy time ahead”.

He added: “Having so many projects in the warehouse and distribution sector demonstrates a major upturn in activity – whether it be build-to suit or speculative development – which is very good news indeed for us.

“With the shortage of available buildings and land in this sector we are well placed to take advantage of the strong tenant demand and record investment yields.”

The projects are at a various stages of the planning process and include work in the retail, office, hotel and industrial sectors.

Stoford is a specialist in warehouse and distribution development.

It has delivered over 10m sq ft of pre-let development to date and will have more than 1m sq ft of space under construction throughout the UK in 2015.

It has developed for clients including Standard Life, AXA, LaSalle, BlackRock, GE Capital, Severn Trent Water, Npower, Admiral Insurance, Tesco and the Co-operative, as well as government departments such as HMRC, DSA, DEFRA and the Home Office.
