Given the shortage of new grade A logistics space in the West Midlands, Prologis Park Birmingham Interchange will satisfy continued occupier demand for industrial logistics facilities in this important motorway corridor and benefits from access to the skilled local labour pool.

“Birmingham Business Park is an ideal location for industrial logistics and these buildings have been designed to appeal to the extensive local automotive supply chain and the more traditional logistics and distribution sectors,”said Phil Oakley, Market Officer at Prologis UK.
 
Sustainability features come as standard in all Prologis buildings and both units at Prologis Park Birmingham Interchange include rooftop solar installations enabling the customer to generate renewable energy and reduce overall energy costs.
 
All our buildings are designed with the future in mind,” Oakley concludes. “An increasing number of our customers are seeking out sustainable, energy-efficient logistics buildings as a way of reducing costs and demonstrating their own ‘green’ credentials.
 
Prologis has been actively investing in the West Midlands for the past twenty years, building more than 11 million sq ft and investing over £1bn in the region. Prologis owns and manages approximately 23.5 million square feet of logistics and industrial space in the UK as of December 31, 2017.
