Prologis completes first phase of Prologis Park West London

Press Release

Prologis, the UK’s leading developer and owner of logistics property, has completed the first phase of Prologis Park West London on Horton Road in Hayes. With two distribution centres that have the potential to bring new jobs for local people, the development also includes landscaping that supports biodiversity and creates new green spaces for the community.

The two new buildings, which Prologis has built speculatively, offer 113,335 square feet and 78,780 square feet of logistics space. The two units are on track to achieve BREEAM ‘excellent’ accreditation and both have been awarded an EPC ‘A’ 15 rating, with carbon emissions reductions of approximately 40% above Part L of the Building Regulations 2013, exceeding the 35% target set by the London Plan.

At Prologis Park West London, Prologis is regenerating a former Victorian brickfield and acknowledging this history, the main road through the development has been named Clayfield Way. During the Industrial Revolution, bricks made on the site would have been transported to Central London along the Grand Union Canal, which runs along the southern boundary.

Highlighting the connection between local brickfields and the canal system, Groundwork South ran the London’s Foundations project during which, schools and community groups were encouraged to make their own bricks in the traditional way. Prologis has used some of these hand-made bricks to create a decorative wall overlooking the Grand Union Canal as a memorial to local brick workers.

Alongside the canal, Prologis has renovated the towpath, improving access and opening the area up for walking, cycling and running. These works are part of a wider landscaping strategy, that includes new footpaths and cycleways around the site.

Prologis will also landscape an additional 40 acres close to Prologis Park West London and when complete, this land will be gifted to the Council as public realm, together with funding for ongoing maintenance. Landscaping work is due to start in the spring and will be complete by the end of 2017.

“We are delighted that we have completed the first phase of Prologis Park West London and that we can offer customers two high quality buildings with the potential to attract new jobs to Hillingdon,” said Paul Weston, Senior Vice President at Prologis. “It has been fascinating to watch the landscaping work take shape and we are particularly pleased to have found a way to commemorate the site’s history.”
