The first new workshop/warehouse units to be built in Newbury for over 40 years have just reached practical completion. Developed by Canmoor, Nexus Park is already proving popular with two of the units pre-let to Camp Hopson’s Removals and F1 Auto Centres. Two further units are firmly under offer and that leaves just three units that are still available to let. These range in size from 10,774 sq ft up to 27,500 sq ft.
