With Barnsley Council taking a pre-let on this space, three separate commercial units of 30,188, 22,002 and 13,133 sq ft were built by Harworth that practically completed in January 2016. These units, branded as ‘R-evolution at Gateway36’, have since been sub-let to Esco GB, Talurit and the Environmental Agency.
This set the tone for the entire development, leading to the decision to directly develop a new high-quality 75,277 sq ft unit, named HELIX, that was practically completed in September 2016 and has subsequently been let to Motor Depot in early 2018.
Also developed onsite are a Greene King pub and new units for KFC, Dunkin’ Donuts and Taco Bell, which are now fully open; establishing Gateway 36 as a key commercial location.
In Summer 2019, Harworth sold the commercial units on Phase 1 to clients of Mayfair Capital to fund new acquisition opportunities across the business. In 2019, Harworth will be bringing forward future phases of the site through the planning system on the neighbouring 110-acres to create another major mixed-use development.
