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.
Harworth are currently underway with key infrastructure and earthworks to bring forward Phases 2 and 3 of the site on the neighbouring 110-acres to create another major mixed-use development.
