KNOWN AS Panattoni Poyle 80, the facility is being built as a net zero carbon development targeting a BREEAM Excellent and an EPC A rating. The building will have 68,9000 ft2 of warehouse space as well as 8,646 ft2 first floor Cat A offices. The warehouse will have 12.5 m eaves, five dock and two level access doors as well as 500KvA of power. Contractor Winvic expects to see practical completion in the third quarter of 2024.

Panattoni Development Manager, South East & London Alex Mitchell, said: “Early interest in the development demonstrates strong occupier demand for the highest quality logistics space in well-connected locations. We are looking forward to completing the development later this year as we continue to execute our speculative development programme”.
