Final phase of 1.7m sq ft industrial park gets underway

Panattoni, the largest logistics developer in Europe, has started construction of the final unit at the 1.7m sq ft industrial park in Northampton.

Panattoni Park Northampton is already home to three former Panattoni buildings totalling 625,000 sq ft, which were developed speculatively and let to Eddie Stobart Logistics.

In March this year, Winvic Construction began construction with two speculative units being 250,000 sq ft and 430,000 sq ft. These units are available for occupation from August and September 2021 respectively.

Works for the final 380,000 sq ft unit will begin this month, which will be last phase of the project.

Once fully occupied, the Park could support over 1000 jobs.

Oliver Bertram, development director at Panattoni, said: “Work is forging ahead at Panattoni Park Northampton and we expect the final unit to be available by mid February 2022. We are delighted with progress so far on the site and look forward to completing the final piece of the jigsaw.”

Burbage Realty and Savills are the joint agents on the scheme.
