South Rings starts next phase of development
Muse Developments in partnership with Roundhouse Properties has broken ground on the £8million speculative office development at South Rings Preston.
One of only a handful of speculative office developments in the region, South Rings Office Village is expected to house over 500 office workers in 23 offices ranging from 750 to 6,000 square feet in a landscaped village. The development will be staged over three phases and will be built to a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating.
The 37 acre South Rings Park is already home to businesses including Places for People, B&Q, Premier Inn, Burger King, and the Walton Fox pub.
Commenting on the start of building works, Roundhouse Properties’ director, Jeremy Lefton, said: “We are committed to providing prospective and current tenants with a property solution that gives their business the platform for growth. We’ve had great success with other schemes in the area during one of the worst recessions in history and we are already getting enquiries about the new development at South Rings.”
Darran Lawless, development director at Muse Developments, commented: “South Rings is one of the first true business parks to be developed for the region. We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Roundhouse Properties in this next phase of the scheme. The Office Village will add value to the current mix of businesses located at South Rings.”
