Sapphire Court site is launched
01.12.11 – Birmingham Post
Regeneration partnership PxP West Midlands has launched Sapphire Court - the first phase of its £9 million speculative industrial development at Bromsgrove Technology Park.
Coun Roger Hollingworth, Leader of Bromsgrove District Council, officially opened Sapphire Court, which comprises 13 commercial units specifically targeted at local entrepreneurial companies. At the launch event PxP West Midlands announced that one of the units had already been let to Euro Foods Ltd, with another unit under offer.
Coun Hollingworth said; "PxP West Midlands has demonstrated tremendous vision to deliver a development of the quality in the current market. It is one of the first speculative developments to be completed in the entire West Midlands since the economic downturn, so I am very proud that the £9 million investment is being plughed into Bromsgrove.
"Sapphire Court's 13 high quality commercial units are ideal for growing businesses that have out-grown an incubation centre and need more space to develop their offering and accommodate more staff. This courtyard development supports our strategy for economic development in the district by helping small businesses flourish and generating new jobs for local people."
Mark Stapleton, managing director at PxP West Midlands, added: "It is so rewarding to announce that two of the 13 units at Sapphire Court have already been matched with occupiers in time for the launch event. We are also working with a number of other interested parties and are confident that this development will be a success, as well as meeting the needs of the local market."
