a commercial hub where creativity & innovation thrive
The conversion of Spithead Business Centre in the mid 1990s provided much needed logistics and manufacturing space for the Isle of Wight and has become recognised as one of the major commercial centres. It is positioned on one of the busiest thoroughfares on the island, linking The Bay area to Newport and Cowes. Situated directly in between Aldi and Morrisons, opposite Premier Inn, it has an immediate catchment of over 25,000 people. It is therefore very strategically placed for commerce within East Wight.
Spithead is home to many logistics and production companies as well as printing, motor trade and tourist product businesses. Anchor tenants such as GKN, Micron, Culvertronic, Elis (laundry services), Howdens, DH Price, ATS, Design Invent Print (DIP), Choice Carpets and Severnside, have added to the vibrant core tenant profile.
It is this diversity that has secured its long term future.
Recent development in the immediate area has seen the arrival of national brands such as Premier Inn, Aldi, KFC and Marstons’ Merrie Gardens family pub which has further confirmed its status as an important commercial district on the Isle of Wight.
Casper Douglas Properties bought the estate in 2015 to secure its long term future through renovation and restoration which is currently ongoing.
