With a strong industrial heritage, Coventry and the wider region is home to many ambitious and successful businesses, from manufacturing and innovation to research and development. Set in a prime location with state-of-the-art buildings and facilities, it’s easy to see why major occupiers Meggitt PLC, MTC, Rolls-Royce and Sainsbury’s, are already centred for business at Prospero Ansty Park.
Spanning 196 acres of land, and with an end capacity of 2,300,000 sq.ft of industrial and office space, Prospero Ansty Park is one of the largest and most significant purpose-built business parks in the Midlands. Designed with both scale and space in mind and with innovation at its core, a new BREEAM Excellent spec scheme Apollo 69/6 is currently under construction at the park. The scheme will consist of three units and will be ready for accommodation in Q1 2022, with potential for further buildings or a single building of circa 700,000 sq. ft.
Offering a desirable location that industry leaders gravitate towards and situated at the core of the UK’s manufacturing heartland, Prospero Ansty Park is unique in its connectivity and positioning. The Midlands-based site provides instant access to UK transport links, enhancing connections to the business network on a national and international level.
