Harworth specs at Gateway 36 scheme

Property regeneration company Harworth Estates will begin the speculative development of a 75,000 sq ft industrial unit at its 17-acre Gateway 36 scheme in Barnsley in February.

The new unit is expected to be completed in September 2016. It will provide high-quality manufacturing and logistics space with a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ sustainability rating. Letting agents for the development are Knight Frank and Gent Visick.

The new unit will be the fourth unit to be developed by Gateway 36. It is located by junction 36 of the M1 off the Dearne Valley Parkway and is designed to meet the region’s rising demand for the supply of new industrial units. Funding for the construction has come from a £2.7m loan from the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Joint European Support for Sustainable Investment in City Areas (JESSICA) Fund.

Dave Travis, associate director of business space at Harworth Estates, said: “Building this unit speculatively marks another exciting period for Harworth Estates and our Gateway 36 development. There is a lack of good-quality units of less than 100,000 sq ft in the region and we have taken this decision to steal a march on other developers focusing on ‘big box’ logistics.
