Yorkshire’s 127-acre Gateway 36 site will see its first 75,000 sq ft warehouse completed in September.
Sheffield based contractor and developer, JF Finnegan, has been awarded a £3m design and build contract by Harworth Estates Limited to create the 75,000 sq ft unit. The project is going ahead thanks to European Union funding.
An increasingly acute shortage of good industrial floor space in South Yorkshire is behind the latest move.
The 75,000 sq ft Unit 5 will be developed as part of the first phase of Harworth’s Gateway 36 development, and is the largest so far. Harworth has already developed three smaller units totalling 65,000 sq ft.
The site is next to the A6195 Dearne Valley Parkway, just off the M1 south of Barnsley.
