Construction underway on major industrial estate

Work is underway on a new industrial and logistics development in Doncaster, which will offer five units covering 376,419 sq ft in total.

The scheme is called Total Park and is being developed by Total Developments at Balby Carr Bank, off the A6182. Units are being marketed jointly by Leeds property consultancy, GV&Co and M1 Agency.

Each property will benefit from fully fitted upstairs office space and extensive parking areas complete with electric vehicle charging points.

Daniel Walker, from GV&Co, said: “Total Park is in a central location for many businesses, close to the M18 and A1(M) which link to Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester in the North and Nottingham, Birmingham and London in the South.

“In addition, the site is less than four miles from iPort Rail, which provides immediate access to the national rail network and all the country’s deep sea ports.

“There are very few new units, of this standard and specification, currently under construction in South Yorkshire and with so many household names located close by, including Amazon, Tesco, Screwfix and IKEA, we’re anticipating high levels of interest in Total Park from regional, national and international occupiers.”

The first three units will be ready for occupation in quarter three of 2024.

Henry Watson, from M1 Agency, said: “We are seeing specification and location be paramount to occupier requirements in the current market and Total Park benefits from best-in-class building specification and unrivalled location.

“We have seen a large take up of units below 150,000 sq ft across the South Yorkshire region leaving a very limited supply.”

Ed Chantler, chief executive of Total Developments, added: “Total Park Doncaster represents a continuation of our clear strategy since inception.

“Our track record of identifying sites and speculatively developing best-in-class mid-box warehousing and manufacturing space has established our position as market leaders in the 20,000 to 150,000 sq ft size range.

“Our focus on targeting undersupplied towns and cities where there has been a lack of high specification accommodation being brought forward has ensured our success in achieving pre-commitments and hence gives us the confidence to push on at Doncaster and ensure the development is expedited to meet demand.”

The first three units in the first phase of Total Park will offer 65,389 sq ft, 54,503 sq ft and 43,525 sq ft of space. Two further properties, spanning 128,945 sq ft and 84,056 sq ft, are due to complete next year.
