UK property developer Godwin Developments has announced it has exchanged contracts with a consortium of landowners on a 54-acre site in Daventry, which it intends to transform into a high-quality, sustainability-led employment hub.
The site – known as ‘South East Gateway’ – benefits from an existing allocation of 32 acres in the Daventry Local Plan for industrial, logistics and business uses. It is well positioned off the A45 London Road at the southeastern entry point into the town, next to similar uses, and offers quick access to the M1 Junction 16 which lies only 6 miles away.
South East Gateway reflects Godwin’s core I&L strategy of securing prime sites situated in close proximity to key motorway and A road networks, where supply is constricted and there is clear, unsatisfied occupier demand. The business is targeting the delivery of modern, best-in-class institutional-grade assets, built to the highest ESG standards that incorporate green spaces, biodiversity and social value principles from their inception.
Marcus Phayer, Development Director, Industrial and Logistics at Godwin Developments said: “We are really pleased to have secured this key allocated employment site in Daventry. With its proximity to the town centre and the M1 motorway, as well as the Grade A specification we have in mind, we are certain it would attract strong interest from potential occupiers.
