New warehouse for Middlewich

A 160,000 sq ft warehouse is to be built close to junction 18 of the M6 motorway at Middlewich, Cheshire.

DBS Pochin, a new joint venture partnership between DB Symmetry and local developer Pochin, has now applied for planning permission. Work on site could be complete by the end of this year.

The site could subsequently see up to 1.75m sq ft of development.

Last week DB Symmetry scored a deal at its 111,000 sq ft speculative warehouse at Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan.

The deal, with joint venture partner Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM Real Assets), saw MDA take the unit on a 10-year lease. There is potential to expand the warehouse by a further 70,000 sq ft on the existing 6.27-acre site.
