Caddick Agrees Deal For £50m Distribution Centre In Yorkshire

Construction News Image
A deal has been reached for Caddick to deliver a £50 million GDV distribution centre in Yorkshire.

The firm's construction arm will serve as main contractor for the 512,000 sq ft facility near Wakefield.

The project is being delivered on behalf of global real estate investment manager AEW and will now be known as Wakefield 515.

AEW will buy the site from Caddick Group and fund the development for its recently launched €290m develop-to-core UK logistics venture with Allianz.

Wakefield 515, previously known as Crosspoint 33 phase two, will sit next to the already completed Cross Point 33 phase one, a £100m 1.2m sq ft distribution centre now occupied by TJX Europe, parent company of retail brands TK Maxx and HomeSense.

Caddick Construction built Crosspoint 33 phase one and is currently working on a host of other industrial and logistics schemes, such as the £10.7 million Novus Business Park in Knutsford, for Chancerygate.

Located at Junction 33 on the M62 motorway, Wakefield 515's strong transport connectivity is expected to appeal to retailers, e-commerce businesses and 3PLs, which would typically look to take a 'big box shed' facility like Wakefield 515.

Being a cross-dock facility, occupiers will benefit from up to 100m yards, 80 dock doors, 229 HGV parking spaces and will be built to market leading specification with a BREEAM 'Very Good' rating.

Myles Hartley, managing director at Caddick Developments, said: "As a Group our focus is on structurally-supported asset classes such as build-to-rent and industrial/logistics, where we see long-term growth potential. Wakefield 515, which follows on from our successful Crosspoint 33 development, will be a landmark scheme in terms of size and scale and we are keen to start on-site, creating hundreds of jobs locally both during and after construction."

Nick Winsley, managing director and head of investments at AEW UK Investment Management, commented: "This acquisition is an excellent opportunity for AEW. The UK logistics sector is demonstrating historically strong take-up, occupancy levels and rental growth with very little new Grade A supply in the Yorkshire market for larger warehouses."

Work will begin onsite in early next year with a completion date scheduled for Q4 2020.
