Fresh from completing the construction of a 240,000 sqft speculative warehouse at Crewe Commercial Park, Europe’s largest developer of logistics buildings, Panattoni, has submitted plans for a further single warehouse of 305,000 sqft on the adjacent 14-acre plot.
The developer has submitted a reserved matters application for a warehouse of 291,239 sqft, along with 13,864 sqft of integrated three-storey offices and a security gatehouse.
The site occupies a prominent position adjacent to the A500, offering easy access to J16 of the M6. Once built, the development will add £3m per year into the local economy and bring over 300 full-time jobs.
Dan Burn, Development Director at Panattoni, said: “We have been hugely encouraged with the interest that we have received to date for our 240,000 sqft speculative unit. By submitting this application, we will ensure that we can respond immediately to occupier’s requirements and give ourselves the option of a further phase of speculative development at the appropriate time”.
Matthew Byrom, Managing Director of Panattoni, added: “As a result of its strategic location between the North West and West Midlands conurbations, Crewe has always attracted a strong list of occupiers. With proposals for the town to become a hub for HS2, we are confident of robust demand”.
CBRE, Burbage Realty and Legat Owen are the retained agents on the scheme.
