Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, today announced that it will speculatively develop a 115,824 square foot distribution centre at the entrance to the third phase of Prologis RFI DIRFT.
Designed to achieve a minimum BREEAM ‘very good’ accreditation and the best possible EPC rating for its size, the speculative 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.
The next phase of Prologis RFI DIRFT has planning consent for 7.8 million square feet of rail-served logistics space and a new rail terminal that will link to the existing Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) infrastructure. Located close to the M1 and M6 motorways and to the A14 and A5 trunk roads, DIRFT is connected to the West Coast Mainline railway.
“This building is the logical next step in our speculative development programme,” said Andrew Griffiths, managing director, Prologis UK.
Burbage Realty, JLL and Savills 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.
