Merchant Place Developments has appointed DTZ and CBRE to market its 105 acres Amazon Park development at Newton Aycliffe in County Durham.
The Newcastle office of DTZ has been appointed regional consultant, while CBRE has been appointed national consultant.
Chris Noyes, MPD’s development director, said the next stage in the marketing of the site has been reviewed now that the development plan for the 460,000 sq ft Hitachi Rail Europe (HRE) project is ready to start.
“2013 will be a landmark year with construction of the Hitachi development on site starting this year. Now is a great opportunity for other occupiers to come to the site and join the excitement that will be generated as we move forward,” says Noyes.
Toby Vernon, senior director at CBRE, said: “We see this as a great opportunity for Amazon Park where we can build almost a further one million square feet of industrial or warehousing buildings to sit alongside the new exciting Hitachi building. Amazon Park is a major regional strategic site that is large enough to accommodate large space users and occupiers in the HRE supply chain.”
