Redevelopment of the former Texstyle World HQ
The Group has also purchased an adjoining site, formerly the Texstyle World HQ. The existing buildings were demolished and detailed planning consents obtained for a new 20,000 sq ft (2,787 sq mtrs) builders merchant and a further 24,000 sq ft (2,230 sq mtrs) of retail warehousing.
The new builders merchants depot was pre-let for 20 years to Jewson Ltd. The Group now retains the completed development as part of its property investment portfolio. This development also included the construction of a new access road from London Road which serves both the Jewson Depot and the adjoining retail development site.
