Orbit ramps up second phase of Academy Business Park
Part of the Emerson Group, the developer is eyeing a spring 2024 completion date to deliver a total of 31,000 sq ft of industrial space within Knowsley Industrial Park off Lees Road.
Orbit Developments has announced that work has commenced on phase two of Academy Business Park, which will be split across eight units.
Phase one completed last year and delivered 35,000 sq ft of space, set across four units.
The announcement follows global biotech company Associates of Cape Cod’s acquisition of 22,100 sq ft at the park, completing the lettings for the first phase of the development.
The company joins the existing tenants at Academy, including Screwfix, Liverprint, and Rexel, and will head up its base of UK operations there.
Dennis Dwyer, Divisional Director at Orbit Developments said “With an ideal location in Knowsley, which has a growing business base, it’s no wonder the park has attracted a huge multinational corporation like Associates of Cape Cod and we’re delighted that they have decided to join us here.
“The business park is continuing to grow, and we are creating a mix of modern business units along with other staff amenities on site.”
