National broadband provider Airband takes on Droitwich warehouse

GJS Dillon with National broadband provider

Acting on behalf of a private investor, Worcestershire commercial property consultancy GJS Dillon has let a 42,574 sq ft warehouse in Droitwich to a national broadband provider Airband.

Airband Community Internet Ltd has taken out a new 5 year lease on 105 Pointon Way, Stonebridge Cross in Droitwich. The warehouse/industrial unit consists of a 24,251 sq ft warehouse, a 13,106 sq ft office and a 5,217 sq ft mezzanine area. The steel portal construction benefits from 8.6 m eaves, 2 level access loading doors, two storey quality offices and a gated yard with barrier entry car park.

There has been a huge upsurge in demand for storage during the pandemic. This has resulted in a buoyant industrial/warehouse market. In recent months GJS Dillon has acquired numerous premises for occupiers seeking space in excess of 40,000 sq ft.

Stonebridge Cross Business Park lies to the north of Droitwich town centre and provides a modern business and logistics hub approximately 3 miles from Junction 5 of the M5 motorway. It is within easy reach of Birmingham and national motorway networks including the M42, M40 and the M6.

Airband specialises in providing high speed broadband to rural and hard to reach parts of the UK. An Airband spokesman said ‘Our aim is to help make home working, studying and streaming a glitch-free reality for everyone, regardless of where they live in the UK. For that, we need the right premises and we’d like to thank GJS Dillon for the support they’ve given us in helping us achieve that goal’

Andrew Lewis, GJS Dillon’s Associate Director said: “Last year, Wychavon achieved the highest headline rents for industrial property in the county. The pipeline of new accommodation for the logistics market looks strong for years and Airband is one of the many companies to benefit from Wychavon District Council’s strategy in this regard. We’d urge other councils in Worcestershire to do the same.”
