Construction starts on 500,000 sq ft warehouse at Infinity Park Derby

With up to 1,000 new jobs to be created, Logicor, the owner, manager and developer of European logistics real estate, has begun construction of a new logistics building, Derby 507, at Infinity Park Derby.

The site will offer over 500,000 sq ft of premium warehouse space, with a significant number of jobs generated both during the construction phase and when the building is complete.

A new link road will also be constructed connecting Infinity Park Derby to a new dedicated junction on the A50. Works are due to start in 2025.

Logicor will work with Infinity Park Derby LLP to deliver Derby 507 to the highest sustainability targets, aiming for BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and an EPC rating of ‘A’ status.

The construction will also deliver 17% biodiversity net gain, offer secure cycle storage and EV storage for both cars and HGVs.

Derby 507 is located on Infinity Park Derby, a 100-acre development with Enterprise Zone Status (EZS).

“We know there is local and national need for high quality, sustainably built logistics real estate in order to meet consumer demand – driven largely by ecommerce,” said Charlie Howard, Managing Director, UK at Logicor.

“Derby 507 will play its part in meeting that need. It has the potential to support over 1,000 jobs in Derby as well as real time improvements to the surrounding road network with the new link road bypassing the main city area.

“Located within the Derby Enterprise Zone and so close to the road networks, it is an attractive prospect for those businesses looking from which to base their operations and we are looking forward to introducing this scheme to new and existing customers in 2025.”

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Logicor, to deliver Derby 507. The main build contract has now been awarded to Bowmer & Kirkland, who successfully oversaw the adjacent Oregon Timber Frame development for us,” said Nick Richardson, Infinity Park Derby LLP. “Our focus is ensuring that the scheme is delivered on time, in budget and a high-quality product is ultimately produced.

“As well as constructing Derby 507, the project will also see the acceleration of a large proportion of the new link road being delivered through our Infinity Park Derby development.

“The remainder of the works, including a new junction onto the A50, should commence next year and improve the existing access arrangements for Infinity Park as a whole, as well as opening up the wider South Derby Growth Zone area, benefitting from a further 3.5m sq ft of employment space coming forward.”
