Construction work on a 2.15m sq ft Northamptonshire logistics scheme has begun.
Prologis is starting infrastructure work at Prologis Park Wellingborough West. This includes a new spine road and access roundabout together with off-site highways improvements. Infrastructure work will continue over the summer and the first buildings could complete in early 2018.
Located beside the established Park Farm Industrial Estate, the new 110-acre development has planning permission for a total of 2.15 m sq ft in buildings, ranging from 80,000 sq ft to 700,000 sq ft.
Next to the A509, Prologis Park Wellingborough West is close to the A45, A14 and the M1, within an easy drive time of Birmingham, London and Manchester, as well as the East Coast ports.
“There is a shortage of modern industrial and logistics space in East Midlands, so our new development is attracting a great deal of interest both from existing occupiers and companies who are new to the town,” said Andrew Griffiths, managing director, Prologis UK.
“There are very few logistics sites with planning permission in the East Midlands, so we are delighted that we can offer customers a wide range of opportunities at this new site.”
Lambert Smith Hampton and Burbage Realty are acting for Prologis.
