Prologis spec warehouse for DIRFT

Prologis will speculatively develop a 115,824 sq ft distribution centre at the entrance to the third phase of Prologis RFI DIRFT.

Designed to achieve a minimum BREEAM ‘very good’ accreditation and the best possible EPC rating for its size, the speculative building will include a rooftop solar installation that will generate 10 per cent of the building’s regulated energy. Completion is expected in the summer of 2017.

The next phase of Prologis RFI DIRFT has planning consent for 7.8 million sq ft of rail-served logistics space and a new rail terminal that will link to the existing Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) infrastructure. Located close to the M1 and M6 motorways and to the A14 and A5 trunk roads, DIRFT is connected to the West Coast Mainline railway.

“This building is the logical next step in our speculative development programme,” said Andrew Griffiths, managing director, Prologis UK. “Our customers rely on us to provide the modern, high-quality facilities in prime locations and we work hard to anticipate their requirements.”

Burbage Realty, JLL and Savills are acting for Prologis.
