DPD, a parcel delivery brand, has taken up 4,000m2 of land in Burgess Hill.
Councillor Jonathan Ash-Edwards, Mid Sussex District Council’s deputy leader, said: “I am delighted that work is now underway at this site.
“When complete, The Hub will offer much needed industrial, warehouse and office space to aid the economic growth of our district.
“Local businesses have long been asking for more office and warehouse space.
“This development will help address these concerns and is another exciting step towards a better future.”
The Hub is part of a Burgess Hill Growth Programme that will deliver significant development and investment over the next 15 years.
This includes 5,000 new homes, new schools, gigabit capable full fibre broadband, a second new business park, regeneration of the town centre, investment in sustainable transport infrastructure and the region’s first science and technology park.
The Hub will provide up to 50,000m2 of employment space, of which up to 14,000m2 will be for distribution and warehousing.
Much of the remainder is expected to be technology-led businesses offering sustainable high value jobs.
