Pigeon acquired this five-acre freehold brownfield site, located on the Norwich-bound carriageway at one of the busiest roundabouts on the A11 in Suffolk. We obtained planning permission and undertook substantial redevelopment during 2015 to create a new motor services area, with tenants including Shell, a tyre centre and car wash, plus one of the country’s top-performing McDonalds restaurants. We continue to manage this busy and successful site.read more
Planning permission in place
Pigeon acquired approximately 3.5 acres at Theobalds Business Park in 2022. The proposed development known as MAX50 is located just one mile from the M25/A10 interchange in Cheshunt, with nearby occupiers including the Sunset Waltham Cross Studios and Broxbourne Business and Technology Centre. We acquired the site with outline planning permission for B2/B8 use and have subsequently secured reserved matters planning permission for a 50,000 sq ft unit. The land will provide much-needed logistics space to the Greater London area and is currently being marketed to occupiers with construction to commence thereafter.read more
Close to Cambridge Biomedical Campus
115 acre science park & 1,250 homes
Pigeon was selected jointly with Lands Improvement Holdings to promote over 400 acres of land on the south side of Cambridge, in the ownership of Jesus College and a private landowner. The land has been promoted through the review of the Greater Cambridge Local Plan, which is due to be examined by an independent inspector in 2025. The land could form an important part of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus 2050 Vision, which seeks to secure and develop the Campus as a leading European life science location. The proposed scheme for this quality piece of real estate makes provision for both residential and employment use, with commitments to meeting net-zero carbon targets and biodiversity net gains of 10%.read more
