Construction of two new warehouse units has begun at Canmoor’s 13-acre site next to Glasgow Airport.
Muir Construction has been appointed as the main contractor for the new £25 million speculative development project at Canmoor’s Westway scheme. It will see the development of an 86,630ft² warehouse to be called ‘Westway 90’ and a 202,230ft² unit to be known as ‘Westway 200’.
Canmoor says that the larger of the two new-builds will “be capable of being split into two units of 91,110ft² and 118,140ft².”
The construction process is estimated to take between 12 and 15 months. Westway 90 is scheduled to be complete in Q3 2024, while Westway 200 is expected in Q4.
Gregor King, Canmoor’s Asset Manager at Westway, said: “We look forward to bringing this ‘best-in-class’ sustainable development opportunity to the market over the next year or so.
“We anticipate strong demand for the space due to the quality of the buildings being developed and the continued strength of the industrial and logistics market in the west coast of Scotland.”
Canmoor’s joint leasing agents for the site are JLL and Colliers, with management by Knight Frank.
Andrew McCracken, Director of JLL, added: “The industrial and logistics sector in Scotland continues to perform well, with demand from a range of occupiers.
“This development at Westway offers opportunities for occupiers to acquire brand new, high specification units with good yard provision, strong environmental credentials, and great connectivity to Glasgow Airport and the M8 motorway.”
