Newbuild at London Gateway underway
The building of the 147,000 sqm warehouse for DHL Supply Chain at DP World London Gateway has begun. In a joint enterprise, DHL will construct the facility at Plot 3040 on London Gateway’s Logistics Park. The main facility build is due to commence in early 2021.
On completion, DHL will lease the facility from DP World London Gateway. The 42 m high bay warehouse will feature 36 m of clear internal eaves height and boast an internal volume equivalent to 645 Olympic swimming pools.
The facility will be completed to a Breeam Outstanding rating and will be fully automated, ready for operation in early 2023.
Jeremy Cracknell, senior property development manager at DP World London Gateway said that “this latest letting brings the total number of occupiers on the Logistics Park to ten, with DHL joining UPS, Dixons Carphone, Made.COM, Lidl, Ceva Logistics, P&O Ferrymasters, Halo Handling (SH Pratt), Ziegler UK and Compagnie Fruitière.” (sh)
