Developer Prologis is starting infrastructure work at its 110 acre Prologis Park Wellingborough West in the East Midlands.
The programme includes diverting utilities, creating development plateaux, building a new spine road and access roundabout together with off-site highways improvements. Infrastructure work will continue over the summer and the first buildings could complete in early 2018.
Located beside the established Park Farm Industrial Estate, the new development has planning permission for 2.15 million sq ft in buildings, ranging from 80,000 to 700,000 sq ft. In line with Prologis’ approach to sustainable development, each unit will be designed and constructed to achieve a minimum BREEAM ‘very good’ accreditation and the best EPC rating possible for its size.
“There is a shortage of modern industrial and logistics space in East Midlands, so our new development is attracting a great deal of interest both from existing occupiers and companies who are new to the town,” said Andrew Griffiths, managing director, Prologis UK. “There are very few logistics sites with planning permission in the East Midlands, so we are delighted that we can offer customers a wide range of opportunities at this new site.”
Lambert Smith Hampton and Burbage Realty are acting for Prologis.
