The 100,000 sq ft build-to-suit facility will be built at St. Modwen Park Gatwick, a new logistics hub located just one junction south on the M23 from the airport.
Construction will begin next month as part of the site’s first phase, with completion anticipated in late summer 2020.
The warehouse with 14 dock level loading doors, nearly 20,000 sq ft of office space and a 50m yard depth, will be a fulfilment centre for airside goods.. Gatwick Airport Limited has signed a 15-year fixed-term lease.
Colin Galletly, Business Change Manager at Gatwick Airport Limited, said: “The speed and productivity of our supply chain is crucial to the success of the retail offering at Gatwick Airport. Our agreement with St. Modwen will ensure we have the necessary facilities to succeed at a prime location and we look forward to occupying and operating the unit.”
