£45m distribution centre for K&N

Kuehne and Nagel is to build at 632,285 sq ft distribution centre at Goodman’s 165 acre Derby Commercial Park just off Raynesway, to the north of the A6 Alvaston Bypass.

The £45 million facility will help service a contract the company has with Heineken.

The warehouse would have 100 loading docks, parking for 164 lorries and a vehicle maintenance unit. There would also be a three-storey office for admin staff and parking for 268 cars.

In a statement, Goodman said: “We can confirm that a planning application has been submitted for a 632,285 sq ft distribution building on behalf of Kuehne and Nagel Drinksflow Logistics and Heineken. The cost of the project is £45 million.”

The developer already has outline planning permission for a single unit up to 1.2 million sq ft on the site.

To date, Goodman has invested about £175 million in the scheme – installing infrastructure, including a link with Raynesway.

Joint letting agents are Innes England, North Rae Sanders and CBRE.
