Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, today announced that it will speculatively develop a 156,670 square foot distribution centre at Prologis Park Kettering.
Designed to achieve a minimum BREEAM ‘very good’ accreditation and the best possible EPC rating for its size, the building will include a rooftop solar installation that will generate 10 percent of the building’s regulated energy. Completion is expected in the summer of 2017.
Providing around 1.7 million square feet in total, Prologis Park Kettering is close to Junction 7 of the A14, which links directly to the M1, M6 and A1(M). Positioned between the main East Coast ports and the Golden Triangle, including the rail freight terminal at Prologis RFI DIRFT, Prologis Park Kettering also offers access to consumer markets in the Midlands, London and the South East.
“This distribution centre is the next step in our measured approach to speculative development,” said Andrew Griffiths, Managing Director, Prologis UK.
Burbage Realty and Budworth Hardcastle are acting for Prologis.
Prologis owns and manages approximately 23 million square feet of logistics and distribution space in the UK as of September 30, 2016.
