First two units at Prologis Park Midpoint - Now Available

The first phase of speculative development at Prologis Park Midpoint, Prologis Developments’ prime new distribution and industrial scheme in Minworth, near Birmingham is now available.  Located on a 65-acre site, this first phase of this speculative scheme comprises two new units of 312,500 sq ft and 235,500 sq ft.

Cameron Mitchell from Jones Lang LaSalle, joint agents with Gerald Eve and Savills, commented: “With occupational demand continuing to hold up for prime locations the scheme, which has planning consent in place for B1, B2 and B8 uses, will appeal to both industrial and logistics companies seeking a well connected, prime site.”

Prologis Park Midpoint is strategically located close to the M6, M6 Toll and M42 motorways, and has access to a total of 11 motorway junctions within a five-mile drive.  The new £3m relief road, which opened late last year, diverts traffic away from Minworth Village, and links up with the A4097 Kingsbury Road, to give easy access onto the adjoining M42.

Cameron Mitchell added: “Prologis Park Midpoint follows on from the first highly successful Midpoint development which attracted companies such as Cadbury and Hozelock.  With planning in place for up to 1.25 million sq ft of industrial and distribution accommodation ProLogis Park Midpoint can accommodate occupiers Build to Suit requirements from 100,000 sq ft up to 435,500 sq ft and is set to become one of the premier industrial/distribution locations in the country.”

Neil Starkie, of joint agents Savills, “There are some serious conversations ongoing with potential occupiers, many of them local distribution companies within the Birmingham conurbation, which is very positive in the current economic climate,” he adds.

Prologis is also constructing an environmental buffer zone, running along the side of the River Tame, which forms the south eastern boundary, as well as structural landscaping to the rear of adjoining homes on Park Lane, to the north. The new environmental buffer will not only support a habitat for voles, bats, birds and other wildlife, but will also serve a dual purpose as a flood storage compensatory scheme.
