The developer has let a 185,000 sq ft distribution centre at the Warrington industrial park to an intralogistics provider, taking the first phase to fully let at more than 1m sq ft.
Jungheinrich, which makes forklift trucks and other warehouse machinery and equipment for the logistics sector, intends to use the unit at Mountpark Warrington Omega to bring together its four existing facilities in the North West, including the regional sales and service centre at Warrington’s Gemini Business Park.
Mountpark Warrington Omega is part of the 575-acre mixed-use Omega scheme at junction 8 of the M62 north of Warrington. Existing customers include Royal Mail, The Delivery Group and Gousto. Other occupiers at Omega include Brakes, Hermes, Travis Perkins, Asda, The Hut Group, Dominos and Amazon.
The developer is now on site with phase two. Construction started earlier this year and the first two units of 307,807 sq ft and 203,180 sq ft are on schedule to complete in January 2021. The third unit, totalling 225,312 sq ft, is programmed to complete in summer 2021.
