100,000 sq ft warehouse for Manchester Airport

,

Icon Industrial has set out plans to build a 102,500 sq ft warehouse unit at its £100 million Manchester Airport site.

The development will include a 95,000 sq ft warehouse building and 7,500 sq ft of integrated office accommodation, with 141 car parking spaces.

Icon Industrial, a joint venture by Stoford Developments and TPG Real Estate, has submitted a reserved matters planning application to Manchester City Council for the building.

It is the third development to be announced at the logistics area of Airport City, with Icon Industrial also set to deliver The Hut Group’s new logistics and global content creation studio, housing up to 2,000 people.

Dan Gallagher, joint managing director of Stoford Developments, said: “This project is the third exciting development on the scheme and offers the opportunity to continue the fulfilment of the Airport City master plan, expanding and enhancing the logistical facilities on site.

Icon Manchester Airport is a 45-acre build to suit logistics/warehouse development, with outline planning consent for circa 1 million sq ft. The remaining fully serviced site can deliver units from 135,000 sq ft to 434,000 sq ft on a design and build basis.
