Food supplier and distributor Leathams has pre-let a 30,000ft2 warehouse at Railpen and Wrenbridge’s 9-acre Dartford X urban warehouse scheme in Dartford, East London.
Railpen’s development partner Wrenbridge has delivered five new Grade A warehouse units ranging in size from 13,000ft2 to 75,000ft2 at the scheme. Each warehouse has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating and all are highly insulated, have PV panels on the roof, and contain water-saving features and energy-efficient lifts. There are also electric vehicle charging points across the site (20% active and 80% passive).
Martin Sandler, Real Estate Director at Leathams, says: “Dartford X is a brilliant location for Leathams. Its proximity to major motorways and transport infrastructure giving us access to Folkstone and Felixstowe for our inbound goods as well as our outbound distribution to London and National, are a key part of its appeal. Dartford X’s green credentials, the ceiling heights, large yard and generous power supply are important too, particularly as we plan to install a new chilled box as part of our fit-out. The outlook over plentiful green spaces and lakes will also be great for our Colleagues from a wellbeing perspective. We look forward to occupying the space and a long-term relationship with Railpen.”
Dartford X is owned and managed by Railpen, the investment manager for the GBP35 billion Railways Pension Schemes and developed in partnership with Wrenbridge.
