Sun shines on RO as it signs first lease at Helix Solstice Park, Amesbury



RO Real Estate is delighted to announce that it has entered into a lease agreement with Toolstation, the multi-channel retailer of tools and building materials, at Helix Trade Park. Helix Trade Park is the first phase of a two-phase industrial scheme on Solstice Park, Amesbury, Wiltshire. This marks the completion of the first letting at Helix Trade Park, with five other units also under offer. Only five other units remain.


Helix is the latest addition to the 160-acre mixed use Solstice Park development, strategically located in central southern England on the A303 trunk road. There are already a number of national occupiers at Solstice Park including KFC, McDonalds, Co-op, Greggs, Harvester, Costa Coffee, Pizza Hut, Toby Carvery and Holiday Inn, as well as the likes of TJ Morris/Home Bargains and Muller Wiseman. Other trade counter occupiers in the immediate vicinity include Screwfix and Howdens.


Phase One consist of 11 new trade counter units ranging in size from 3,197 sq. ft. to 10,408 sq. ft. The units are of steel frame construction and larger units can be created by combining units within a terrace. Each unit has a seven metre eaves height, 37.5kN/m2 of floor capacity, and reserved parking bays, and capacity for a mezzanine floor. The units are all available leasehold and are suited to B1c, B2 and B8 use.


Phase Two of Helix at Solstice Park consists of industrial and warehouse design and build opportunities ranging in size from 10,000 ft2 to 85,000 ft2. These could be tailored to an end user’s specific requirements. Eaves heights will be nine metres.


The letting agents are Myddelton & Major and JLL. Toolstation was represented by Adept Consultancy.


David Kershaw, Group Real Estate Director, the RO commented

“It is very exciting that ahead of completion we are already welcoming our first tenant, Toolstation, to the industrial scheme. Toolstation is one of Britain’s fastest growing suppliers of tools, accessories and building supplies to the trade, home improvers and self-builders, and we are very pleased with a first new tenant of their calibre at Helix.

“Toolstation’s choice of Helix is an affirmation of our decision to continue investing in the site. The RO continues to execute on our strategy of investing in, developing, modernising, and expanding assets, particularly where we see latent demand, and looking for new sites similar to Helix.”
