New business park due to open in Speke

A new development is set to bring a major business boost to South Liverpool.

The £6.5 million Estuary Banks scheme at Estuary Commerce Park, Speke is due to open soon and will provide space for companies that want to expand or relocate in South Liverpool.

Developed by Capital & Centric, in partnership with Barnfield Construction, Estuary Banks will provide more than 80,000 square feet of industrial, commercial and warehouse accommodation.

Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, said, “I’m delighted that developers continue to be active in this part of the city, delivering high quality schemes such as this.

“This development represents a significant investment in South Liverpool and will help further boost the reputation of Estuary Commerce Park as a great place to do business. I wish it every success for the future.”

Tim Heatley, director at Capital & Centric, added, “We bought the five-acre site from the Homes and Communities Agency just 18 months ago and then built all 80,000 sq ft speculatively. It’s rewarding to see the new jobs it’s creating for South Liverpool.

“The success that we have enjoyed here means that we have the confidence to continue our portfolio in South Liverpool and will be launching the speculative 50,000 sq ft Speke Business Park before the year’s end.”

Capital & Centric is now driving forward with a second development on the nearby Goodlass Road, Speke, which will provide 50,000 sq ft of office and warehouse space for local business.
