HelioSlough, the joint venture between Helios Properties and Slough Estates, has made a speculative start on the final phase of Traxpark, its 65,030 sq m logistics development in Doncaster. The speculative unit, at the 40-acre rail-linked site, will comprise an 11,236sq m high-quality warehouse for storage and distribution use.
Rob Trevor, of HelioSlough, says: “This is our first speculative unit and it will be the largest speculative shed in Yorkshire. The first two phases have attracted leading logistics operators in P&O (now Wincanton) and Power Group (for Lever Fabergé) and we hope to replicate this success.”
Work has started on site and completion is scheduled for spring 2005. King Sturge and M3 are the letting agents.
Phase 1 of Traxpark comprises 15,143sq m developed for P&O Trans European (Wincanton). P&O took a further 11,427sq m in the second phase, along with US logistics specialist the Power Group which occupies a 20,438sq m unit to operate the Lever Fabergé contract.
Traxpark is well positioned for road access, located within two miles of the M18’s J3, providing good access to the east coast ports and the A1 and M1. The site is rail connected via an intermodal facility.
