Kuehne + Nagel becomes first occupier of Orion Park

Development partners of Orion Park, in Dagenham, AXA Real Estate Investment Managers and Roxhill have exchanged and completed contracts for the pre-sell of a 60,000 sq ft cross dock warehouse to Kuehne + Nagel.

The two companies have already begun construction works on the new East London facility, which will provide Kuehne + Nagel with the latest sustainable features, such as PVP technology, and is due to be complete in November 2013.

The park holds outline planning consent for a flexible scheme of warehouses, industrial space and offices, ranging from 15,000 to 262,500 sq ft.

Kevin Thompson, CTI & property director of Kuehne + Nagel, said; “Kuehne + Nagel was looking for state of the art accommodation in London which would reflect our position as one of the world’s best connected logistics providers.

“Orion Park met each of our business needs, from the location and access to workforce, to quick occupation and future flexibility.”

Capita Symonds and Knight Frank represented AXA and Roxhill, while CBRE acted for Kuehne + Nagel.
