Phase two consists of three distribution centres, two of which are combined within one large structure, totalling more than 11,000m² of space.
The site is said to be one of the largest warehouse developments in the Midlands and is a key employment site for East Staffordshire. It is already home to Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, who last year took a 10-year lease on a speculatively developed 8,000m² building on the site.
Rob Richardson, Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen, said: “This latest phase of speculative development is a mark of St. Modwen’s intention to meet the growing need for high-quality and well connected space at a number of its key development sites. St. Modwen is committed to providing the Midlands with quality places to work, allowing regional and national businesses to thrive.”
In order to develop the 280-acre site, St. Modwen carried out extensive highway works to support the regeneration of the area and, in turn, unlock the potential of a key location for commercial and residential development, having worked with the local authority and stakeholders.
St. Modwen has also recently secured planning consent for the third phase of construction at Burton Gateway, totalling a further 9,600m² of distribution space.
