Hellier Langston will be responsible for securing tenants for any units, offices and sites that become available at the two locations. They will utilise their expertise and a range of marketing tools to pair potential occupiers to the spaces available, ensuring well-matched partnerships and secure leases. Lambert Smith Hampton is joint agent on the two sites.

Both Eling Wharf and Marchwood Industrial Park are situated near Southampton water, Eling to the north near Totton and Marchwood further south. Eling Wharf has excellent access to the M271 via the A35 Totton Bypass, while Marchwood Industrial park is accessed via the A326, just 5 miles from the M271. Both are well situated for Southampton Docks and Southampton City Centre.

The two sites are approved for B8 use, which includes storage and distribution as well as open air storage for purposes such as HGV parking, container hire, cruise parking, self storage and scaffolding. 

Eling Wharf is 48 acres in size and currently consists of areas of open storage land, warehouses and industrial units of various sizes, a range of office suites and design and build development. Current occupiers include IPL Haulage, Hanson Aggregates, Southwest Trucks and Eling Construction.

Marchwood Industrial Estate covers an area of 120 acres and comprises industrial units, office accommodation and open storage. Current occupiers include Royal Mail, Maritime, Elliott Hire, Biffa, Hoyer and Brockenhurst College.

Site owner ABP - Associated British Ports - is the UK’s leading and best-connected port owner and operator. Their network of 21 ports around Britain offer unparalleled marine, road and rail access to domestic and international markets.

Their expert teams work collaboratively to build long-term partnerships and deliver the right supply chain solutions for their customers, including value-added services and brand new facilities tailored to suit their business needs. ABP also offers large areas of development land across a wide range of strategic port locations, capable of attracting investment and delivering transformational benefits for the economy both locally and nationally.

Hellier Langston Director Matthew Poplett said: “We are thrilled to have won this instruction and are looking forward to working with ABP to secure reliable tenants for their premises as and when sites and units become available. Eling Wharf and Marchwood Industrial Park are amongst the few open storage sites outside of Southampton Docks, but still in close proximity to the docks for convenience. There are no out of hours use restrictions on the open storage sites and both locations have excellent access to the motorway network.”

Check out 2G and 2H Marchwood Industrial Park, two adjoining industrial units measuring 6,252 sq ft. The property comprises a large warehouse area, office space and comes with a secure yard, allocated parking and 24-hour security.

EW09 Eling Wharf is a 44,300 sq ft secure open storage site, finished with concrete and type 1 surfacing. The site will be surrounded by a paladin security fence and benefits from access to water and electricity.
