Plans for a 265,000 sq ft Yorkshire warehouse scheme have been submitted to Leeds city council.
Keyland Developments Ltd, the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister-company to Yorkshire Water, has submitted an outline planning application to Leeds City Council to bring back into use a vacant 16 acre site within the Aire Valley.
The site is located off Pontefract Lane, the A63 trunk road close to junction 45 of the M1 motorway, between the existing Cross Green Industrial Estate and the Leeds City Region (Aire Valley) Enterprise Zone.
The masterplan outlines 265,000 sq ft of B1, B2 and B8 industrial and commercial space with 8 units ranging in size from 20,000 sq ft up to 60,000 sq ft to reflect market demand. The proposed building plots have been sited to maximise potential occupiers’ exposure to the A63.
Rupert Visick from Industrial Property specialists Gent Visick added; “The significant frontage to the A63, combined with direct access onto this major arterial road will be a key aspect in its popularity. We are expecting strong interest from both the occupational and development sectors as we progress through the planning process”.
