Speculative logistics scheme in County Durham to go ahead

A 650,000 sq ft County Durham speculative logistics development is to go ahead following the award of £75 million funding.

The move means the speculative logistics scheme will be the biggest in the North East for a decade.

The development on the Integra 61 site close to junction 61 of the A1(M) is being promoted by Citrus Durham. Avison Young and Colliers are advising.

The site will see a 298,000 sq ft stand-alone, 15 metre high bay warehouse plus 342,000 sq ft industrial/logistics development of four units ranging from 43,000 to 152,000 sq ft.

The developers say the scheme will fill a crucial void in the regional supply pipeline.

GMI Construction has been appointed as contractor for the build and work has started on site with the Connect units ready for occupation in summer next year. 

The wider Integra 61 site, of which this scheme is a part, is one of the North East’s most significant regeneration projects with outline consent in place for over 3 million sq ft of employment space with the potential to create some 4,000 jobs. It is already home to Amazon’s 2 million sq ft fulfilment centre.
