The development has capacity for up to 100% coverage of roof solar PV panels and will deliver more than 24,000ft² of Grade A office accommodation with 256 car parking spaces and 26 EV charging points on site.
Mike Baugh, Executive Director of CBRE Leeds Industrial team said: “Eclipse offers market-leading sustainability credentials, designed specifically to reduce energy use, mitigate climate risk and boost biodiversity. It fulfils a number of ESG criteria sought after by occupiers.”
Ben Ward, Managing Director at Rula Developments said: “With limited speculative development taking place within the industrial and logistics sector, at a time of severe supply shortages, we are proud to be driving forwards with this extensive unit.”
