Exeter Property Group and First Industrial have completed the steel framework of 360 at Logistics North in Bolton, the North West’s largest industrial speculative development. Savills and JLL have been instructed as joint letting agents for the major new unit.
Due to be completed in August 2016, 360 will total 357,700 sq ft (33,230 sq m) including 340,000 sq ft (31,586 sq m) of industrial space, two storey offices and 74 HGV trailer parking spaces. It is located immediately adjacent to Junction 4 of the M61, within three miles of the M60 and M62 and also provides easy access to the key ports of Liverpool and Hull.
At 250 acres (101 hectares), Logistics North is one of the largest developments of its kind in the North of England. The landmark scheme, which is fully supported by Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, has attracted leading occupiers including Aldi, MBDA and Joy Global.
Jonathan Atherton, industrial director at Savills, comments: “The completion of the steel framework is a significant milestone for 360. We have already received strong interest from potential occupiers attracted by the high quality design of the building and excellent connectivity of the site.”
