Site work paving the way for a 3m sq ft second phase at Verdion’s iPort development, Doncaster, is expected begin in the new year.

Sources in Yorkshire suggest that infrastructure work to open up the second phase at the £500m iPort will begin in the first quarter of 2017.  The Phase II scheme includes plots for two units each of 1m sq ft. A Verdion spokesperson decline to comment.

Lidl  join Fellowes, Amazon and CEVA who have also taken space at iPort within Phase One. Over 2 million sq ft has now been committed.

A planning application for Lidl’s new warehouse and office space has been submitted, with construction anticipated to commence in 2017.

Verdion is developing the scheme on a 337-acre site in Rossington, Doncaster. The site is linked with Junction 3 of the M18 motorway via the Great Yorkshire Way. Gent Visick, CBRE and Cushman & Wakefield are letting agents for iPort.
