Prologis and joint venture partner Wittington Investments (Developments) are to speculatively develop a 213,482 square foot distribution centre at Prologis Park Fradley.
The new facility will be built next to the 562,000 square foot distribution centre that Prologis is currently developing for Screwfix. In an established industrial location, Prologis Park Fradley is next to the A38 north of Lichfield and close to the M42, M6, M6 Toll and M1 motorways.
“There is strong demand for modern distribution facilities in the West Midlands,” said Prologis managing director Andrew Griffiths.
“Our customers rely on us to provide modern, high-quality facilities in prime locations, so we agreed with Wittington that this new building at Prologis Park Fradley should be the next step in our speculative development programme.”
The new building is designed to achieve a minimum BREEAM ‘Very Good’ accreditation and the best possible EPC rating for its size. It will include a rooftop solar installation that will generate ten per cent of the building’s regulated energy. Completion is expected in early 2018.
