Acting on behalf of Mileway, the leading pan-European last mile logistics real estate company, Carter Towler and GV& Co have successfully let all three units at the newly completed Norquest Industrial Estate at Birstall.
Refrigerated logistics company, Igloo Thermo Logistics, has expanded its operations, moving from Morley to a larger 36,383 sq ft unit at Norquest Industrial Estate. The second unit comprising 33,020 sq ft has been let to global kitchen and bathroom surface supplier Neolith UK, and an EV charging business has taken the remaining 7,211 sq ft unit.
The recently redeveloped units all have a ‘very good’ BREEAM and EPC A ratings, 6.5 – 10m clear working eaves, level access loading doors, secure yards and ample car parking including electric charging points.
Commenting on the trio of deals, Carter Towler’s Josh Holmes said: “This has been a fantastic scheme to be involved with. There has been a great team effort throughout, right from the initial design stages, through to achieving planning permission and on to completion. It demonstrates the shrewd decision from Mileway in speculatively developing the site.
“There continues to be a shortage of industrial units of this standard and size across the Yorkshire region, and the high level of interest we experienced when marketing these reinforces that. Norquest Industrial Estate is particularly well placed, it’s prominently located just off the A62 Geldard Road, 5 miles from the city centre and has direct access to the M62 and M621/M1 intersection. All of which means it is ideal for businesses seeking distribution hubs close to retailers and purchasers.”
Mileway’s associate director James Chasen added: “This is a good example of how Mileway is helping reinvent industrial space to meet current market needs. Not only have we added in must- have features for today’s businesses, such as extensive yard space, loading docks and EV charging, but we have also created a future proofed environmentally efficient space.”
“We are delighted to welcome these three new customers and support them in the next stage in their development.”
Carter Towler employs 55 people and is acknowledged as one of the most commercially active, independent property consultants in the North. In the past 12 months the company has been involved in over 400 industrial, commercial, investment, property management and building services deals and manages over 4,500 properties for its clients nationwide.
Triton Construction acted as construction partner for Mileway on the redevelopment.
