Station Island is part of Wellingborough's Stanton Cross development which will create more than 3,000 new jobs, open up 1.5 million sq ft of commercial space and see the building of 3,750 new homes and new community facilities.
The Station Island scheme will also include a new platform for the town’s railway station.
Bromwich Hardy are marketing the site jointly with Drake Commercial for Vistry Homes.
Bromwich Hardy partner Michelle Mills said Station Island would be a flagship development offering parcels of land from 0.84 acres to 8.31 acres, with potential to combine plots.
Michelle said: “Outline planning permission has already been obtained for a wide variety of commercial and residential uses at Station Island, which will undoubtedly be the premier development of its kind in the region.
“The location, transport links and infrastructure will all be first class – St Pancras is less than an hour away on the train - and the development will create an unrivalled business

"We are delighted to finally be able to offer the site to market and expect a huge interest.”

Station District will be a diverse development with a mix of complementary uses concentrated around Wellingborough Station and its new facilities and parking, while the Mill Lane Quarter will be an mixed-use area drawing upon the cultural heritage of Mill Lane and distinctive character of the Round House Building.
The Northern Neighbourhood will be a community of starter, family, and later living homes, with opportunities for serviced offices and co-working hubs, local commercial services and leisure facilities to be integrated within the fabric of the development.
The Employment Village will be a place to work, conveniently situated close to bus and rail links, within walking distance of Wellingborough and Stanton Cross, and benefiting from the country park on its doorstep.
Outline planning permission has been granted for a range of uses including e-commercial, business and service; offices; B2 light industrial; B8 storage or distribution; C1 hotel; C2 care home, retail and sui generis uses including a leisure establishment.
