The Business Zone at Cross Hands is the nucleus of the Growth Zone – this is where it all started in the 1980’s.Mainly consisting of physically large properties and a host of well known trade names the site is predominantly retail led with a business to business and trade element dimension. It is some 38 hectares and is a mature and significant employment site in its own right with over 800 people employed.

The Business Zone has seen long term stability from many of the original occupiers and in recent times is experiencing significant growth in infrastructure, investment and property. There are a few remaining land opportunities on the site – around 4 hectares, mainly geared towards trade and retail developments. However, as Cross Hands has shown over the years it is perfectly placed to accommodate all types and sectors of business.

The Business Zone is in a fulcrum position and is perceived as having a strong shopping destination with indigenous and national offerings for the consumer – its position in the context of the road network is enviable for retail logistics as is the entire growth zone. It allows fast access for customers and suppliers alike and with future transport investment on road and public transport scheduled, its connectivity to market will further improve in coming years.
