DP World starts work on London Gateway warehouse

[ September 20, 2022   //   ]

DP World has begun work on a new speculative 119,000sq ft green warehouse at London Gateway’s Logistics Park.

The Dubai-owned company says that demand for space in the South East of England is reaching unprecedented levels and the new green warehouse is being fast-tracked for completion in the third quarter of 2023.

In the last 12 months, four major new tenants have taken leases at London Gateway’s Logistics Park. Transmec and Magnum, two leading logistics businesses, signed up earlier this year following the news that London City Bond, a leading UK bonded warehousing provider, and OASIS Group, a secure information and data storage service provider, would also locate there.

The new facility will be one of the most sustainable warehouses yet built. It will have a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ classification, with a target to deliver a 30% carbon reduction during construction and a 40% reduction in operational carbon emissions.
