London Gateway to fast track new warehouse

[ March 2, 2021   //   ]

DP World is to fast-track the delivery of a speculative 146,000sq ft warehouse at its London Logistics Park before the end of 2021 to meet demand space from online retailers in the South East of England. It follows the letting upon completion of LG231, a 230,000sq ft warehouse facility, to P&O Ferrymasters last year.

Park development director at DP World in the UK, Oliver Treneman, said: “The new facility will be ready for occupancy in the last quarter of the year and will be one of the most sustainable warehouses yet built, with a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ classification, EPC Rating A and Planet Mark Accredited. We are using the latest sustainable technologies to drive down both the use of raw materials and carbon emissions to the minimum possible levels.”

The new facility will be completed and ready for occupation in December.
