SEGRO is understood to be planning a 450,000 sq ft multi-storey warehouse at Enfield.
The firm has already explored further multi-storey development closer to Heathrow to meet growing airside demand. They already operate the UK’s single large multistorey warehouse at Heathrow, a 230,000 sq ft facility.SEGRO has already trialled multi-storey warehousing in France and Germany.
If successful the Enfield example could be repeated around London, where land supply problems are becoming acute and pressure for urban logistics floorspace growing fast.
Multi-storey warehousing has dedicated supporters in mainland Europe but has been slow to catch on in the UK.
