Plans submitted for 417,570 sq ft speculative logistics development

Panattoni, the largest industrial real estate developer in Europe, has submitted a planning application for one of the largest speculative logistics facilities in South Yorkshire.

The application is for a 417,570 sq ft facility next to Doncaster Sheffield Airport on a 18.4-acre site acquired by the developer with outline planning consent from Peel L&P in March.

Called Panattoni Doncaster 420, the specutlative development will be will be built to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC ‘A’ ratings with many sustainability features, such as electric vehicle charging points and 15% roof lights. It will also benefit from 15m clear internal height, 34 dock doors, three level access doors, a 50m yard with parking for 74 HGVs and up to 1.5 MVa of power.

Panattoni which is targeting to start construction later this year with completion in the third quarter of 2023, says the site will connect the motorway network, air cargo, and multi-modal rail freight via iPort nearby, providing access to both consumer and industrial markets across the UK and the world.

Dan Burn, Development Director at Panattoni, said: “This is a superb logistics site with direct access to local, regional and global markets. Our planning application has been submitted just six weeks after we acquired the site, which reflects our desire and ability to bring much needed speculative development forward as quickly as possible”.

CPP, Colliers International and Burbage Realty have been appointed as letting agents.
