Ergo in its Aver Property partnership with NFU Mutual and Waystone Hargreaves Land, the joint venture company behind the Unity development project in Yorkshire, has started construction on a 191,000ft² speculative warehouse to be known as Doncaster 191.
Caddick Construction has been appointed as main contractor, following a competitive tender process.
The unit will occupy a 10-acre plot within Unity Connect, one of the dedicated employment areas of the scheme, which is strategically located immediately adjacent to Junction 5 of the M18 motorway. The property will be available from Q4 2023.
Unity Connect has outline planning permission for industrial and logistics space and forms part of a wider planning permission for 2 million ft² of commercial space and 3,100 homes across the Unity development site.
Andrew Johnson, Director at Waystone Hargreaves said: “There is a high level of demand for new, high-quality distribution space within the South Yorkshire market, so we are delighted to be starting 2023 on such a positive note.
“Despite the wider economic outlook, the occupational industrial market is showing continued robustness and we are finding that Unity’s proximity to the M18 is proving to be a major draw for occupiers.”
