Building Work Underway At Enkalon Business Park
11 May 2009Construction work is due to begin within the next three months at Enkalon Business Park, Antrim, which will result in the creation of c. 31,500 sq ft in total of new office space according to joint sales and lettings agents, Osborne King.
The new development, which will be named Enkalon Office Park, is located approximately half a mile outside Antrim town centre within a fourteen-mile radius of Belfast. It is adjacent to the site of the new Asda Superstore, scheduled to open early in 2010, which will be the company’s largest store to date in Northern Ireland comprising a total sales area of 54,000 sq ft in addition to a restaurant and 600 car parking spaces.

The first phase of Enkalon Office Park will comprise high-specification, own-door office suites ranging from circa 1,300 sq ft to 2,600 sq ft, each with lift access. All office suites will be offered on a For Sale or a To Let with an option to purchase basis. Phase 2 of the development will provide a further c. 12,000 sq ft of office space that would be ideally suitable for use as a headquarters office building. Gareth McGimpsey from Osborne King who is handling all enquiries relating to the development commented: “The announcement of Asda finally getting approval for their new superstore has generated tremendous interest in Antrim, especially from owner occupiers looking for both own door offices or business units. As such our clients have decided to speculatively start building phase one of the office scheme demonstrating great confidence in Enkalon Business Park and Junction One as one of the leading commercial and retail locations within Northern Ireland.”
Meanwhile, the final tranche of business units at Randalstown Road Business Park, which also forms part of the overall Enkalon Business Park, have been released. Units are available from c.1,500 sq ft on a For Sale or To Let basis, with an option to purchase. Osborne King and O’Connor Kennedy Turtle are joint agents.
