When the last paper mill in the Wye Valley closed at the end of the 20th century – after 800 years on the site – it marked the end of an era. But BAM’s redevelopment of this prime site is attracting 21st century businesses to the area and bringing a new lease of life to the aptly named Glory Park.
BAM Properties speculatively developed Phase 1 (2.5 acres) of Glory Park, creating three ‘Grade A’ office developments totalling 64,000 sq ft. All three buildings are now occupied. The flagship building A1 – which comprises 28,000 sq ft of office space – was sold to Paradigm Housing Group, while A2 and A3 are let to the UK arms of two specialist pharmaceutical companies.
The remainder of the Glory Park site is open to a broad range of uses, with two further development phases, totalling 4.33 acres, being available.
