Work on Park­side site in Don­caster com­plete

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

Work to build two new ware­houses on the Park­side Busi­ness Park in Don­caster has been com­pleted.

Con­struc­tion com­pany Lin­dum has reached prac­ti­cal com­ple­tion of the units, which are be­ing de­vel­oped by re­gen­er­a­tion spe­cial­ist St Mod­wen.

They of­fer 61,000 sq ft of in­dus­trial space across the two build­ings, which can be split to pro­vide flex­i­ble ware­house op­tions from 10,709 sq ft to 31,876 sq ft.

The units form the sec­ond phase of de­vel­op­ment at the 27acre site off Wheat­ley Hall

Road, one of the main ar­te­rial routes into Don­caster, close to the M18 mo­tor­way and just eight miles from Don­caster air­port.

St Mod­wen launched the first phase of the site in 2016 com­pris­ing circa 78,000 sq ft of ac­com­mo­da­tion, which are now both let to lead­ing Ger­man busi­nesses.

Bosch Au­to­mo­tive is now op­er­at­ing its flag­ship au­to­mo­tive tech­nol­ogy train­ing fa­cil­ity in one of the units and the other unit is DB Schenker’s north­ern hub for ser­vic­ing the Hi­tachi trains on the East Coast main­line.

A plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion for the third and fi­nal phase of the flag­ship de­vel­op­ment in Don­caster was granted in Septem­ber. The ap­pli­ca­tion is for more than 108,000 sq ft of in­dus­trial space across three build­ings, and once con­structed will com­plete the 247,000 sq ft de­vel­op­ment which was granted out­line con­sent in March 2016.

Rob Richard­son, in­set, se­nior de­vel­op­ment man­ager at St Mod­wen, said: “This is a ma­jor step for­ward in the over­all de­vel­op­ment of this strate­gic site for St Mod­wen.

“The first phase at Park­side Busi­ness Park has proven to be a great suc­cess with two great ten­ants which have brought jobs and in­vest­ment to Don­caster.”
