Citivale, the UK specialist logistics developer and operator, has secured Reserved Matters planning approval for the first unit to be built at its Greenbox Thirsk site.
Unit 1 at Greenbox Thirsk will comprise 365,000 sq ft of manufacturing and logistics space with market-leading sustainability credentials, marking the first phase of development which will provide up to 825,000 sq ft across three units in Thirsk, North Yorkshire. Enhanced specifications will include 15m haunch heights, 55m yard depths, 50Kn / m2 floor loading, a mix of ground level and dock loading doors and high-quality office space.
Greenbox Thirsk is the first development for Greenbox, launched earlier this year. Located in an established distribution and manufacturing hub, less than 5 minutes from both J49 of the A1(M) and the A19 at Thirsk, Greenbox Thirsk provides access to the North East, Teesside and Tyneside. Neighbouring occupiers include Cargill, Inspired Pet Nutrition (IPN), Severfield PLC, Cleveland Steel & Tubes, Wetherby Group and I’Anson.
In line with Greenbox’s ESG commitments, Unit 1 at Greenbox Thirsk will target net-zero carbon in construction, BREEAM Excellent and EPC A ratings. The roofs will be 100% photovoltaic panel ready, 10% of parking spaces will be for electric cars (future-proofed for all spaces), and CAT-A fitted office space is proposed with LED lighting and air-source heat pumps. Bespoke build, to individual occupiers’ specific requirements, can also be accommodated. Colliers and Carter Towler are retained as letting agents for Greenbox Thirsk.
