Plans revealed for Birmingham logistics park expansion
Developer Prologis and Coltham Developments have announced that they plan to expand Prologis Park Midpoint, Birmingham, to provide more urban logistics facilities for its customers in the Midlands.
The companies will develop a new warehouse facility of up to, 15,329m2 on the site of a former fulfillment centre which was recently acquired.
According to Prologis, the Birmingham conurbation, which is the second most populated region in the UK, has a dwindling supply of land for industrial use, largely due to a loss of space to residential development and the constraints of the greenbelt.
The new project, which the developer said will help to alleviate the current demand for distribution space, will further expand Prologis Park Midpoint, which currently has over 130,000m2 of warehousing in five fully-leased buildings.
Stuart Franks, Development Director at Coltham Developments, said: “It’s great to have completed the acquisition of this prime site for Prologis. I wish Prologis every success with their proposals for the site moving forward to provide much needed logistics space within Birmingham.”
