Aviator submits plans for new Ellesmere Port development

11 February 2021

Developer Redsun Projects has submitted an application to progress the second phase of development, totalling 280,000 sq ft, at the industrial scheme in Ellesmere Port.

Under the plans, Redsun would build two distribution units measuring 200,000 sq ft and 80,000 sq ft respectively.

The first phase of the scheme, part of the Cheshire Science Corridor enterprise zone, completed last February. This comprised a 125,000 sq ft speculatively developed industrial unit, which Redsun let to personal survival equipment manufacturer Survitec last October on a 20-year lease.

The first phase was funded with a loan from the North West Evergreen Fund, and investment support from the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership.

Nick Wightman, director at Redsun, said: “Aviator phase one was an excellent example of what can be achieved when public and private sector work collaboratively together.

“It has elevated Ellesmere Port in the eyes of the investment market and with demand at an all-time high, now seems the perfect time to bring the next phase to the market.”

He added: “There’s a chronic shortage of good quality stock in the region and the quality of the product we’re delivering at Aviator, not forgetting its proximity to the motorway network, will make these buildings highly attractive to occupiers and investors.”
