Epta Development Corporation Acquires 100 Acres of Prime Industrial Redevelopment Land near Bristol, England

Future plans include a world-class, sustainable logistics and distribution park that will serve the region

Avonmouth Severnside, ENGLAND — 17 December, 2020 – Epta Development Corporation (EDC) of Vancouver, Canada has acquired a prominent 100-acre redevelopment property commonly known as AvlonWorks (the “Property”) in the heart of Avonmouth Severnside, England.

The Property is one of the largest infill, freehold, and unbroken land redevelopment opportunities in the Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area, acting as the major industrial fulfillment hub to the South West of
England. Strategically located for local and national distribution via the M49, M4, and M5 motorways providing supply chain efficiencies for logistics operators. Nearby port connections offer intermodal connections
benefitting national and international logistics occupiers.

EDC has contracted with Maynards Europe, a global leader in industrial auctions and liquidations, to manage the decommissioning, asset recovery and demolition of the former pharmaceutical plant to prepare the Property for redevelopment.

A world-class logistics and distribution park of regional and national significance is being envisioned for the Property. EDC is proposing a masterplan that will feature a sustainable, modern, multi-unit scheme totalling over 1,850,000 square feet of leasable area at completion.

The Property represents a trophy asset opportunity with the potential to redevelop the site into a nextgeneration investment grade logistics park. For EDC, the purchase and proposed redevelopment furtherserves as a launching point towards a broader UK and EU company vision, led by a value-add and opportunistic investment strategy. A UK consultant team is being assembled by EDC and further details will be released as the planning and envisioning progress.

The transaction acquisition capital was placed by JLL’s Debt & Structured Finance team in London with Tikehau Capital arranging and providing the senior facility through the second vintage of its special opportunities strategy.
