Prologis eyes West Midlands sites

Prologis eyes West Midlands sites

Prologis is mulling plans for another 650,000 sq ft of new speculative logistics floor space in the West Midlands.

The developer is understood to be considering a further 213,000 sq ft at Fradley, and units of 145,000 sq ft and 327,000 sq ft at Ryton.

Agents say that demand for West Midlands mega-sheds is at record levels. One Birmingham agency reports handling enquiries amounting to 2m sq ft in the last 48 hours alone. Two of those requirements – both online retail – were over 600,000 sq ft.
