Barberry will deliver manufacturing site

A state of the art 57,000 sq ft manufacturing and design facility is set to be constructed at Birmingham’s Advanced Manufacturing Hub (AMH) after Barberry Industrial was selected as preferred developer for the site by Birmingham City Council and Homes England. 

The West Midlands-based property investor and developer was selected after a competitive bidding process. 

Barberry Industrial development director Jon Robinson said the company had acquired the site and a detailed planning application has been submitted to Birmingham City Council. 

Construction could start on site before the end of the year, with practical completion expected in Q3 2021. The development is expected to attract investment to the region and could create up to 250 jobs.

Barberry has a 3.3 million sq ft industrial/logistics development portfolio with a Gross Development Value of more than £398 million.

Jon said: “We are very excited to announce that we have been selected as preferred purchaser and development partner to deliver Barberry 57 - a high quality, grade A advanced manufacturing facility located in a prime position at the Advanced Manufacturing Hub. 

“This represents another excellent piece of business between Barberry, Birmingham City Council, and Homes England. The new development will provide the occupier with a state-of-the-art facility with easy access to the M6 and Birmingham city centre. It is also expected to attract further investment to the region, generate further economic growth and new jobs for the region. 

“We have worked hard and invested heavily to create a Barberry brand in the mid-box industrial/logistics market, providing high quality buildings for occupiers, built to an institutional acceptable specification. It is therefore hugely satisfying to know that the quality of our developments is recognised.” 

Councillor Ian Ward, leader of Birmingham City Council, said: "This is a huge vote of confidence in Birmingham's economic recovery and means jobs and investment at a time when they are sorely needed.The Advanced Manufacturing Hub continues to be a real success story, with major occupiers such as Hydraforce, Guhring, Mayflex, Y International, and Salts Healthcare, creating over 1,500 jobs. 

"Now, with this investment from Barberry, we can build on that success, creating the jobs and opportunities needed in Birmingham."

Charlie Spicer, director at Savills, said: “This represents the latest milestone in the success story for the Advanced Manufacturing Hub and we look forward to seeing this building coming out of the ground soon. There is a shortage of industrial stock in Birmingham so Barberry57 will be a welcome addition.” 

Last year, Barberry developed a 65,000 sq ft unit at the AMH for occupier Mayflex, which agreed a 10-year lease on the unit.
