As part of the ongoing regeneration of Edmonton, the Montagu Industrial Estate will be transformed into a mixed-use business estate that will help to increase employment and rejuvenate the surrounding area.
Located just north of the A406, the 29-acre estate will be redeveloped in phases to create more than 680,000 square feet of employment space to be delivered in a joint venture partnership between Enfield Council and Henry Boot Developments (HBD).
The development will accommodate both existing and expanding local companies whilst also attracting new businesses to the area.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration and Business, Cllr Alan Sitkin, said: “Enfield is extremely well-placed to take advantage of the burgeoning U.K. manufacturing sector and we are constantly looking at new opportunities for our borough.
"The Montagu Industrial Estate will become a modern, well-equipped and accessible site that will not only be primed for new businesses but will help create jobs for local residents. It will have a positive impact on the surrounding neighbourhood, aiding in the growth and sustainability of the locality. I look forward to working with our partners at HBD to deliver the project.”
Adrian Schofield, Regional Development Director at HBD, said: “We look forward to starting on site with the first phase of construction - the scheme has great potential to attract innovative, growing businesses to the area and will facilitate the creation of high-quality jobs within the borough.”
The demolition of Unecol House will set the scene for the development and facilitate the regeneration project. Unecol House is a vacant property in a prominent position on the estate.
