Durham County Council has granted planning consent to Citrus Durham for the 52,000 sq ft speculative scheme providing 23 units.
The site is part of the £300m mixed-use Integra 61 development at J61 of the A1(M) fronting the newly upgraded A688 and Durham Services, just 4 miles away from the City of Durham.
Evolution@Integra61 has been designed to address the regional shortage of modern small units to satisfy strong demand from local and regional occupiers seeking high quality industrial/warehouse units in the centre of the County.
Integra 61 development, which already includes Amazon’s new 2m sq ft Fulfilment Centre and has consent for over 3 million sq ft of employment space with the potential to create some 4,000 jobs.
There are also design and build packages available for units up to 600,000 sq ft in the wider Integra 61 scheme.
Citrus Durham will be appointing a contractor to start work on site in the summer and agents, Avison Young and Colliers International, are already taking reservations in advance of practical completion of Evolution@Integra61 in Q4 2021.
“The scheme will unlock much-needed new supply for the region. With the industrial and logistics sector so busy, there continues to be an increasing need for these type of units,” said Danny Cramman, Director at Avison Young.
