A 500,000 sq ft Wakefield warehouse scheme is planned for the 375-acre former Yorkshire Water site at Calder Vale.
Keyland Developments Ltd, the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister-company to Yorkshire Water, has submitted a planning application to Wakefield Council for a new employment scheme on its 47 acre Wakefield East site in West Yorkshire. The proposals for City Fields Waterside Park Business Hub can incorporate up to 500,000 sq ft of new floorspace.
Keyland’s strategic site, which was part of the redundant Yorkshire Water Calder Vale treatment works, forms the primary employment element of the 375 acre City Fields development which is creating a new community to the east of Wakefield.
The new £33m Wakefield Eastern Relief Road (WERR), which is set to complete in early 2017, forms the backbone of the proposed scheme. Wakefield East Consortium has promoted a masterplan framework for development sites along the WERR and City Fields Waterside Park Business Hub has been identified as a potential employment area.
Bilfinger GVA and Knight Frank are letting the scheme.
