Brand new commercial property for sale – despite national shortage

Michael Jones Commercial are pleased to report that the Glenmore Group are nearing with the final construction of the largest speculative industrial development on the south coast of England.

Phase 2 of the Glenmore Business Park at Portfield in Chichester is due for completion in Autumn of this year which will bring 42 new industrial/warehouse units totalling 100,000 sq ft. Phase 1 was built and all sold in 2017 proving a massive success for the local economy.

However developers and published industry articles are reporting that there is a national shortage of new commercial property available which is failing to meet the rising demand. Michael Jones Commercial are therefore pleased to have this amazing opportunity which once completed will provide 39 small units from 900 to 2000 sq ft and, 3 larger units ranging from 15,000 to 22,000 sq ft.

Nearly 70% of phase 2 has already been sold or let and that is prior to completion of the units.

Steve Berrett of Michael Jones Commercial has been appointed as joint sole agent to market Phase 2 and said that construction work is anticipated to be completed by October 2018.

Steve said: “Industrial land has been and is currently in strong demand and looking ahead the industrial land being sold for development across the south coast as a whole is looking at a shortage in supply of new units over the coming years. It is no wonder these units have proven very popular for both investors and businesses.

Once finished the units will include mezzanine floors ready for occupier fit out and benefit from being located on the outskirts of Chichester, immediately adjacent to the A27 opposite the Portfield Retail Park to include John Lewis, M&S food hall and Homesense. Occupiers on the estate already include FlipOut trampoline centre and

    This is not about Michael Jones but one of their employee, Rob Stewards . Shout out you man and well done for the great service . Much appreciated. Keep it up . Rob was in charge of sorting thing out between my last landlord and myself … More at the end of the tenancy and helping return my deposit . For everyone renting , you know how it is always trying to get that money back. The landlords are always trying to make up stories in order to hold a chunk of your money . I cannot thank Rob enough for his outstanding wisdom in helping us to reach an agreement and avoiding dispute resolution . Although in the middle of the case , Rob went on holiday and things were not resolved as one of his colleague or rather manager tried . And my gut feeling was surely , Rob will get it sorted after his holiday and I was right . He got a compromise in no time .Many thanks Rob . God bless you and keep up the good work .

    I approached Michael Jones, letting Agents, ( amongst many services on offer), in order to locate and occupy a rental property for 6 months for two adults and a small dog.It was’nt easy finding accommodation for my dog....After a couple … More of dead ends, I found and made my interest known to Michael Jones.From that point on, the process , whilst tricky for someone who had not rented before, was made easier and concluded by several team members of the agents. All of the solved problems were caused by my lack of understanding, but sorted by the letting agents.Special mention to Lisa , Of the progression Section, who steered me through several difficulties, and delivered the property for me , and in time....She was, I know, working until very late at night to ensure the transaction went smoothly.I would recommend Michael Jones, if you are looking for temporary accommodation, they are professional and capable agents.My thanks to all involved.Arthur Russell
