The firm has now been granted planning permission for the site will to the west of Glenfield on the north-western fringe of Leicester just off Junction 21a of the M1.
Nick Richardson, Managing Director of Wilson Bowden Developments said: “We have been working on this for some time and the site is one of the best opportunities for employment land in the region.”
The mixed commercial scheme will include 80,000sqft of office space as well as 1.1msqft of warehousing and industrial units alongside 250 new family homes.
Martin Traynor, Chief Executive of the Leicestershire Chamber said: “In Leicester and Leicestershire we are desperately short of good quality employment land in key locations.
“Opening up sites such as Glenfield Park will attract new businesses to the area and provide new space for local companies looking to expand.’
