Simon Hill a director at HTA Real Estate commented "Turbine Business Park’s position and recent investment announcements, including Nissan and Envision AESC's £1bn plan to produce a new generation of electric cars alongside a new gigafactory to produce its batteries, make it an ideal choice for a potential tenant".
