Work has begun on an ambitious next phase of development at Leicester’s Pioneer Park.

Leicester City Council is working with local firm Brackley Property Developments Ltd to build further much-needed new commercial workspace as part of ongoing work to support the growth of technology and knowledge-based businesses in the city.

The three-storey building will be built next to the popular managed workspace at Dock and offer office and light industrial workspace across three floors.

The new building will provide 14 individual units – ranging in size from 800sqft to 1,800sqft – all providing grow-on space for Dock-based business that are ready to expand as well as new businesses looking to join Dock’s existing entrepreneurial community. The building itself will complement the look and feel of the original building, with similar materials used in its construction.

Located right next door to Dock, businesses based in the new building will benefit from Dock’s full range of facilities including reception services, meeting and conference facilities, fast IT and access to networks and events. Given the site location within the city’s Enterprise Zone, businesses will also benefit from generous business rates benefits.

Once complete, the new building will become part of the Dock campus and be managed by the City Council.
