European logistics property specialist Verdion has begun speculative development at iPort Doncaster, its 6m sq ft logistics and rail freight hub in South Yorkshire.

Construction has started on two units of 120,000 sq ft and 60,000 sq ft, which are scheduled for completion in Q3 2018. These units will complement an existing 195,000 sq ft which is complete and ready for immediate occupation.

iPort comprises 337 acres of net development land, which links directly to the M18. iPort Rail.

Both units will offer 12.5 m internal clear height, comprise steel portal frames and metal sheet roofs, and will be insulated using profile metal sheeting.

Single storey ancillary office units will also be delivered as part of the overall offering for both units. The 120,000 sq ft unit will offer nine standard dock level doors, 19 HGV parking bays and a 55 m deep yard. The 60,000 sq ft unit will offer three standard dock level doors, 13 HGV parking bays and a 55 m deep yard.

John Clements, European Development Director at Verdion, said: “These latest developments at iPort will enable us to satisfy a broad range of occupier requirements by delivering a variety of different sized, highly-specified warehouses with exceptional connectivity. Sustained demand for space at iPort has already seen Amazon, CEVA, Fellowes and Lidl take occupancy, and we’re extremely confident these new units will be in equally high demand.”

iPort will cover 2.73m sq ft of development. A further 3m sq ft of planned development will be brought forward on the balance of the land. Build to suit opportunities are available from 50,000 sq ft to 1m sq ft.

CBRE, Colliers International and Gent Visick are advising Verdion.
