Industrial developer Panattoni has its eyes trained on a 417,000 sq ft logistics facility in South Yorkshire, which it aims to provide to occupiers from summer 2023.

Panattoni Doncaster 420 is based at GatewayEast, Doncaster Sheffield Airport and is located within six minutes of rail facilities and around 50 miles from both Immingham and Hull ports.

The site already has outline planning consent and the developer expects to start construction later this year.

As well as targeting BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC ‘A’ ratings, occupiers are expected to benefit from sustainability features and green build options.

Dan Burn, Panattoni development director, said: “This well-located site with direct access to local, regional and global markets is a superb addition to our speculative development programme.

“South Yorkshire is rapidly forging a reputation as one of the UK’s prime distribution locations.

“Record take up across Yorkshire in 2021 has resulted in the supply of units over 100,000 sq ft dipping to the lowest level ever seen.”
