Online retailers lease 550,000 sq ft in golden triangle

IDI Gazeley has leased two warehouses to American online retailers – a 258,503 sq ft unit at Magna Park, Lutterworth and a 297,111 sq ft unit at Daventry Distribution centre.

“The units’ high-quality design, as well as extensive sustainability credentials, combined with the prime position of both parks, are perfectly in line with the businesses’ requirements,” said Alex Verbeek, managing director UK, IDI Gazeley. “We have worked with these companies over the years and are delighted to help them strengthen their supply chain infrastructure and support their continued development in the UK and Europe.”

The two sites are in the UK’s logistics “golden triangle”. Building 4400 at Magna Park is a newly refurbished 15-year-old cross dock facility with 131 dock level loading doors.

Daventry Distribution Centre is part of IDI Gazeley’s rolling spec build programme. It is situated on Royal Oak Industrial estate and has 28 dock level loading doors, three level access doors.

The names of the occupiers have not been revealed but it is believed that the Magna Park unit has been taken by Wayfair, while Amazon has been suggested as the occupier of the Daventry unit.
