Adidas in sprint finish at Trafford Park

Key Property Investments, the joint venture partnership between St Modwen and Salhia Real Estate Company of Kuwait, has taken just 34 weeks to build Adidas’ 430,000 sq ft warehouse at Trafford Park, Manchester.

The facility, which occupies a 10-acre site fronting Westinghouse and Mosley Roads, was handed over to Adidas in late November. The company is well advanced with its multi-million fit out which will see the creation of a state-of-the-art distribution hub for its Adidas, Reebok and Rockport brands. It is scheduled to be operating by summer next year.

The building boasts a number of green elements such as rainwater reharvesting, the use of crushed material from the 700,000 sq ft of existing buildings demolished to make way for the scheme, extensive on-site water attenuation and the provision of extensive landscaping including over 400 trees on site.
