Practical completion has been reached on Bourges View, a 200,000 sq ft multi-use development in Peterborough.

The Chancerygate and Bridges Fund Management scheme includes three drive throughs, nine trade counter units and nine industrial and warehouse units ranging from 2,800 sq ft to 34,500 sq ft.

The scheme, which has a gross development value of £30m, will create an estimated 280 jobs.

Pre-lets on all three drive-throughs have been taken up by Costa Coffee, fast food chain Taco Bell and US burger giant Wendy’s, while trade merchants Toolstation, Wurth, Brewers, Careco and self-storage provider Lok’nStore have committed to the scheme.

Fourteen units ranging from 2,800 sq ft to 34,500 sq ft remain available on the scheme which is close to the A15 and A47.

Chancerygate senior development director George Dickens said: “We have rejuvenated an empty site to create new employment and trade counter opportunities. This ensures businesses located at Bourges View are best placed to serve Peterborough and the locality, whilst supporting job creation and economic growth for the region.

“There is strong demand from businesses for high specification, sustainable accommodation which is evidenced by the numerous well-known brands already secured as occupiers. The prominence, tenant mix and accessibility of this development makes it Peterborough’s premier roadside and trade counter destination.”

Agents for Bourges View are Savills and JLL.
