A new £100 million warehouse and logistics park at Manchester Airport has been opened for business. The Manchester Airport site is a ‘build to suit’ logistics and warehousing development that has outline planning consent for around a million square feet of space. Units of between 100,000 square feet to 700,000 square feet are likely to be built on the 45 acre, fully serviced site.
The Manchester Airport build is part of joint venture “Icon Industrial”, a partnership between Stoford Developments and TPG Real Estate.
“This is a landmark development for the North West and also for Icon Industrial,” said Dan Gallagher, joint managing director of Stoford Developments. “It marks the exciting first development for the joint venture and also presents potential occupiers with an excellent opportunity to have a unit built to their specific requirements in a first-class location at the very heart of the Northern Powerhouse.”
“The connectivity it offers future occupiers makes it a hugely significant site in what is already a rapidly expanding logistics area at Airport City.”
The site should suit firms that wish to do business with Manchester Airport,, with plans to use the air freight facilities as part of their larger supply chain. It should also boost jobs and the economy in the area too.
