GLP reveals plans for 1m sq ft of logistics warehousing space in Lutterworth

GLP, an investor and developer of logistics buildings and warehouses, has revealed plans to speculatively develop a further 2.3m sq ft of logistics warehousing space at strategic sites across the UK – including Lutterworth.

GLP is to build 1m sq ft of space across three units of 200,000, 297,000 and 503,000 sq ft at Magna Park North, Lutterworth.

The development will be BREEAM Excellent, designed to WELL principles and feature a range of sustainability and energy efficiency measures that are designed to continuously improve GLP’s environmental aspirations.

Bruce Topley, Managing Director, UK, GLP, said: “We are seeing continued strong customer demand for Grade A sustainable warehouse space in our market. This is primarily driven by the ongoing growth of ecommerce coupled with the need for supply chains to be improved further and significant supply constraints. These new developments are a response to that exceptional demand.

“We are committed to investing in our portfolio and offering our customers as much choice and flexibility as possible to respond to their growth needs. We are also firmly focused on delivering buildings with less embodied carbon than industry standard and which reduce operational carbon emissions.”
