Manse Opus is delighted to announce that a JV between Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Canmoor has agreed to forward fund the latest industrial scheme at Prospero Ansty Park, Apollo 69/6, on which planning permission has been granted by Rugby Borough Council. The development will comprise over 241,000 sq ft of Grade A industrial space. Manse Opus will act as Developer.

The development will be for three new units, Apollo I, II and III and will seek BREEAM Excellent and EPC ‘A’ ratings. The units will be available for both B2 and B8 users.

Set in 196 acres, with over 2.3million sq.ft of business space, the award winning Prospero Ansty Park is already home to major occupiers, including Rolls-Royce, Cadent Gas and the FTSE 100 aerospace company, Meggitt PLC. The site, which is zoned for employment is located six miles to the north east of Coventry City Centre and offers an excellent solution for both businesses and employees.

Victoria Turnbull, of Manse Opus, commented; “Manse Opus is delighted to be acting as Developer on this exciting new scheme working in conjunction with Goldman Sachs Asset Management, and we are excited to bring forward yet another Grade A scheme to Prospero Ansty Park. Apollo 69/6 represents the next phase of development at Prospero Ansty Park and it will capitalise on the positive market sentiment currently in the industrial sector.”

Farbod Nia, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, commented “We are excited to be partnering with Manse and to acquire a prime scheme in a core logistics market. This investment is an exciting continuation of the growth of our development-focused joint venture with Canmoor, working with leading development partners like Manse to deliver high quality space for our tenants.”
