Wixams is a 750-acre mixed use site which will provide over 4,500 homes, 5 schools and more than 300 acres of parkland. It has proved a popular location for major warehouse occupiers as Aldi and B&M both have distribution centre’s within the wider estate.

The developers said that Fuse, Wixams will be an environmentally sustainable development, which focuses on staff wellbeing. Adding that this is an important consideration for business considering relocation.

Neil Finnie, director at Buccleuch Property, said:

“Fuse, Wixams is the latest of our speculative industrial schemes with Wrenbridge and we look forward to delivering another high-quality development which can provide both economic value and employment opportunities to the local area.”

Jeff Wilson, director at Wrenbridge, said:

“Fuse, Wixams will deliver new units in a size range not being catered for in the region. Our focus is to provide a new sustainable development in an environment that will help companies attract and retain staff.

Adroit Real Estate Advisors and Colliers are appointed as the leasing agents for the new development.
