Hemel Hempstead is a place ‘you can do business’.
Inward investment into the area is at an all-time high, showing strong investor confidence. Prologis have a planning application for the Prologis Park development on Maylands gateway. The proposals will deliver new distribution warehouses and investment in the local road infrastructure. The scheme will secure over £80 million of private sector investment and based on research undertaken by Prologis, as well as that of Cranfield University, the scheme when fully delivered will support around 750 -1,000 jobs in the manufacturing and logistics sectors.
Additionally there have been offers for land of over 600,000 square foot on Maylands, including the 150,000+ sq.ft. Aviva Retail Scheme being given planning approval on Maylands Avenue. We’ve also seen additional redevelopment of 140,000 sq.ft. of class A offices at the Maylands building (formerly Diamond Point) and the £10 million redevelopment and upgrade of Westside, Apsley.
“A vibrant business community draws in infrastructure, investment and talent. Hemel Hempstead has just that. We have a growing number of diverse, great businesses in all sorts of sectors from technology, IT, logistics, manufacturing and service. We base ourselves here because, simply, it’s a great place to be doing business. ”
