Property developer Prologis has been granted planning permission for a new logistics facility on its industrial estate in Minworth, West Midlands.

The plans include the demolition of an obsolete unit on the Prologis Park Midpoint and the construction of a 163,000sq ft building rated BREEAM ‘excellent’ and net zero carbon in construction which will deliver logistics space to the West Midlands market.

Originally built for the supermarket giant Asda in 2016, Prologis said the existing facility was too bespoke for wider market requirements.

It said repurposing the site to meet current market demands will provide additional space in a prime location.

James Hemstock, Prologis UK director said: “The redevelopment plans for DC6 Prologis Park Midpoint will bring a much-needed new lease of life to an under-utilised site and additional space to a starved market. We are looking forward to work getting underway early summer.

“We’re expecting to complete the building early 2023 and have already had a significant amount of interest from potential customers.”
