230,000 sq ft logistics development planned for 10-acre site

Rula Developments has secured a 10-acre site near Junctions 33 and 34 of the M1 in Sheffield, with plans to deliver up to 230,000 sq ft of new industrial/logistics accommodation.

The site is located off Europa Way, next to the well-established Sheffield Business Park, in the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District (AMID).

Existing occupier, Tinsley Bridge Group (TBG) has completed a sale and leaseback of its 62,000 sq ft factory and headquarters building which has been sold to Moorfield.

TBG plans to vacate its old factory and remainder of the site in 2025, making way for redevelopment.

Rula says it will submit a planning application in the first quarter of 2024 but is yet to determine building plot sizes subject to demand.

Anthony Clitheroe, development director at Rula Developments said: “We are pleased to have secured this strategically important site that sits within an already well-established logistics location in Sheffield and just two miles from the M1 motorway.

“The area is already recognised as a hotbed of cutting-edge industry and is well placed for last mile logistics operators serving the Sheffield City Region.

“The requirement for high quality, purpose-built industrial accommodation in the region remains high and we plan to develop the plot in line with occupier demand.

“This site sits well within out existing portfolio of well located, highly accessible and strategically supported developments.”

CPP represented Rula on the site acquisition and investment sale and has been retained as agent for the new build alongside Colliers.

Rula Developments is a privately owned commercial development company focusing on identifying and building on sites across the UK.
