Thriving East Yorkshire business park to Evolve with new speculative development

Hull property developer Wykeland Group has unveiled plans for a new development at the fast-growing Melton West business park.

The company is set to build Evolve @ Melton West, a new scheme which will include two large units and a terrace of five smaller units, all available to let from early 2025. The development will form part of the wider Melton West site, off the A63 west of Hull, creating a total of 84,000 sq ft of business space where companies can grow and expand their operations.

The £10m development is being delivered speculatively by Wykeland as the latest investment at its East Yorkshire site, with work due to start next month.

Wykeland development director Jonathan Stubbs said: “We’re delivering Evolve @ Melton West to provide much-needed modern space to meet the needs of growing businesses. The market is telling us there is a shortage of high-quality facilities of this kind and a pent-up demand for them.

“We are approached regularly by businesses looking for a new space to move into, to support their growth. Those companies are looking for facilities that are ready made, modern, energy efficient and fully fit for purpose. The shortage of such facilities is stifling investment and growth within the region and that’s an issue that Evolve @ Melton West will help to address.”

The buildings will include rooftop solar panels, green living walls and electric vehicle charging infrastructure, while cycle storage shelters, green roofs and electric vehicle charging also forming part of the overall development. The project is set create or safeguard almost 100 jobs during the construction phase, as well as 150 full-time jobs once the facilities are occupied.

Mr Stubbs added: “Evolve @ Melton West will build on the huge success we have already seen at the wider business park, in both attracting major businesses to the region and retaining employment within the area. We believe there will be strong demand for these units from businesses looking for modern facilities with excellent sustainability features at a location offering easy access to the regional and national road network.”

Almost 2.5m sq ft is already under construction at Melton West, including global medical technology business Smith+Nephew relocating from its existing site in Hull to a new £100m research and development and manufacturing facility, and a new Amazon distribution facility.
