Our property developer HBD, has started on site at East, an 18-acre industrial and logistics development site in Preston. East is a joint venture between HBD and Barnfield Construction, located close to Junction 31A of the M6. The first phase has a total of just over 69,000 sq. ft. with 5 individual units. Construction works will be completed by Barnfield and is expected to finish in Q3 2021. Strong interest is already building for phase one as well as a further 2 units on the wider.

Steve Manifold, Senior Development Surveyor at HBD, said: “East can accommodate a wide range of sizes for industrial and logistics use and we already have a lot of interest, which is very encouraging. The space is designed to appeal to local occupiers – many of which have struggled to find the right facilities in recent years – as well as larger corporates who can benefit from the site’s M6 location.


He continued: “It’s great to see work starting on site, and we look forward to seeing the scheme take shape.”
