Javelin Way is an employment site on the Henwood Industrial Estate in Ashford. The project will support the development of the site for employment use, with a focus on the development of Ashford’s creative economy.
The scheme consists of two elements:
- The construction of a ‘Creative Laboratory’ production space (with a ground floor internal area of 1,293 sqm). This will be leased from Kent County Council by Jasmin Vardimon Company, a world-renowned dance company and creative organisation.
- The development of 29 light industrial units (with a gross internal area of 3,046 sqm), for sale and/or lease, suitable for additional creative businesses as well as the general market. Mezzanine floors will be available for the 29 industrial units, with full flexibility on the sizes of mezzanines to meet market demand.
The delivery of the project is also being supported through Growing Places Fund loan investment totalling £1,597,000. Further information on this investment can be found here.
