A £7.5m infrastructure and ground works programme for the entire site, facilitating build-to-suit plots for buildings from 8,000 sq ft up to 515,500 sq ft is now complete. The 2.64m sq ft of planning consent will therefore begin with the development of units B1, B2 and B8, directly adjacent to the motorway Junction.
In April 2019, the joint venture sold 10-acres of the site’s ‘North plot’ to the University of Leeds to build a major research facility that will be home to the University’s Institute for High Speed Rail and System Integration, creating a thriving hub for future engineers.
During the same month, a further sale of 43-acres of commercial development land was sold to PLP, in one of the largest commercial transactions in the UK at the time. PLP will be working with Harworth and Evans Property Group to begin the earthworks and infrastructure for developing 850,000 sq ft of industrial and distribution space across four units, with work expected to start in Summer 2020 subject to a successful submission of a reserved matters planning application to Leeds City Council in 2019.
