Developer Mountpark Logistics has submitted detailed plans for a 1.64 million ft² logistics campus, on the former Coal Yard at Ferrybridge Power Station to Wakefield Council.
The proposed scheme, known as Mountpark Ferrybridge, will comprise six state-of-the-art buildings ranging from 100,000 ft² to 620,000 ft² that have been designed to achieve EPC ‘A’ ratings and minimum BREEAM ‘Excellent’ accreditations. It is located at the intersection of the M62/A1(M) motorways and is expected to create in the region of 2,000 jobs.
Brett Huxley, Development Director at Mountpark UK & Ireland said: “Mountpark Ferrybridge is an exciting opportunity to bring a historic brownfield site back to life by providing much needed industrial/logistics facilities to a strategically important distribution location. We aim to develop a best-in-class campus that will provide significant inward investment by offering our customers the best possible facilities and creating an environment that will attract and retain employees.”
The plans include amenities such as roof terraces and high-quality landscaped areas for occupiers and their employees to enjoy.
