The development is at the 53-acre Symmetry Park, Bicester where Tritax Symmetry is developing the unit to net zero carbon in construction, as regulated by the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC).

Symmetry Park, Bicester extends to a total of 53 acres and has the capacity to deliver up to 755,000 sq ft of logistics floor space. In addition to DPD, current occupiers at the scheme include Bentley Designs Ltd and Medline Services Ltd.  The final site, with consent for 344,000 sq ft, is vacant.
