Development Land For Sale Opens Potential For New Stirling Business Community

A parcel of land is now available for sale that offers a significant opportunity to develop a major new business community in Stirling.

Joint agents CKD Galbraith and Thursz Property Consulting are marketing the 19.5-acre site on behalf of Moto Hospitality Ltd.

Located adjacent to Moto’s Stirling motorway service area off Pirnhall roundabout at junction 9 of the M9/M80 motorway, the land comes with ‘minded to grant’ planning consent to create a new business park on the south side of Stirling for a mixed use office and leisure development.

The site, which is accessed through the service area where fuel, restaurant and overnight accommodation is available, boasts excellent road, rail and air communications with over half of Scotland’s population living within 60 minutes’ drive from Stirling’s city centre.

Straddling both the M9 and M80 motorways, the land is accessed by direct road links to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee and the Central Belt.

Stirling’s railway station provides regular services to Glasgow, Edinburgh and beyond, and the capital’s airport is only a 30-minute drive away with Glasgow International Airport accessible in under 60 minutes.

The site has detailed planning permission, subject to a Section 75 agreement, for 174,330 sq ft for Class 4 offices and 17,700 sq ft for Class 11 leisure buildings and associated infrastructure, including more than 560 parking spaces.

As one of Scotland’s fastest growing areas, Stirling is a business location of choice for major companies including HSBC, Prudential and Stirling University. As well as its excellent links to other parts of the country, the area’s spectacular scenery, with its panoramic views of the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle, has seen SEPA, Scottish Institute of Sport and Association of Scottish Colleges recognise it as an ideal location for corporate headquarters.

In addition to its thriving business community, the city has a strong retail and tourism industry. The gateway to Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Stirling offers a dynamic mix of heritage and contemporary University culture that attracts more than 4.5 million visitors each year.

David Thursz of Thursz Property Consulting said: “This is a major development opportunity right in the centre of Scotland. Its excellent transport links and position between the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow will be a huge benefit in attracting new, established and relocating companies and their workforces to the area.”

Richard Higgins, Partner at CKD Galbraith, said: “Stirling’s recent development history is incredibly positive, with the success of the Castle Business Park and United Auctions’ Stirling Agricultural Centre, both situated at the next junction to the north, demonstrating the appeal of the area to a wide-ranging occupier base, including national public sector companies.”

Multi-Million Pound Redevelopment Offers Retail Appeal in Kinross

A major redevelopment of Moto’s Kinross motorway service station is set to offer real appeal to retailers and tourism operators alike.

As part of the improvements, eight new retail letting units, each extending to 3,000 sq ft are being marketed by joint agents CKD Galbraith and Thursz Property Consulting on behalf of Moto Hospitality Ltd.

Located at J6 of the M90 motorway, the multi-million pound redevelopment of the 12-acre service station will comprise the new retail letting units, a new petrol station and amenity building with anchor tenants Moto, BP, M&S Simply Food, WH Smith, Burger King and Costa.

This gateway location with its proximity to St Andrews, the home of golf, provides an ideal opportunity for tourism and field sports retailers to cater for the passing golf trade as well as the hunting, shooting, fishing markets en route to the Highlands.

Only 40 minutes from Edinburgh and Glasgow, the service area, which is adjacent to Dobbies Garden Centre and on the same site as budget hotel company Travelodge, is already a busy stopping point for more than 650,000 commuter vehicles each year.

And its location on the doorstep of Scotland’s most successful music festival, T in the Park, sees a welcome summer boost of around 80,000 visitors.

Richard Higgins, Partner at CKD Galbraith, said: “This is an exciting retail opportunity in an ideal location. Situated in the heart of Scotland, it forms an important, strategic stop on the main motorway network between Perth and Edinburgh. The benefit from peak summer trade for T in the Park will no doubt appeal to retailers wishing to take advantage of this significant passing footfall.”

David Thursz of Thursz Property Consulting added: “Moto’s substantial investment in the travel infrastructure demonstrates confidence in their offer, the local market and their ability to attract big brands to the area. The new, fit-for-purpose facility will meet the needs of the modern day traveler and the local market, benefitting everyone.”
