Verdion has announced a new letting at iPort, at its £500 million multi-modal logistics development in South Yorkshire to Nike's supply chain management partner.
The 215,800 sq ft unit is part in Phase One of the 6m sq ft scheme, to service its contract which will include 10,000 sq ft of office space. Completion of building work is scheduled for February 2016.
Michael Hughes, CEO of Verdion, comments: “This deal follows swiftly on the heels of the double, 1.315m sq ft letting to a global retailer. iPort is continuing to attract high-profile occupiers with great covenants and we have strong interest in the rest of the scheme.”
Fellowes signed up for 144,000 sq ft in April.
iPort is a 337-acre Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI) providing rail freight services with continental gauge clearance to all major UK ports and the Channel Tunnel.
The site at Rossington is linked with Junction 3 of the M18 via the Great Yorkshire Way which opened in February 2016.
Gent Visick, CBRE and Cushman & Wakefield are letting agents for iPort.
