Prologis, the UK’s leading developer of logistics property, have welcomed Heston Automotive as its newest customer to unit DC1 at Prologis Park Dawley Road, supporting the growth of the online car retailer’s national operations.
DC1 at Prologis Park Dawley Road in Hayes is net zero carbon in construction and exemplifies Prologis’ continued commitment to decarbonisation. The unit also has an EPC A Rating and is part of an ever-growing business community in West London. The park offers easy access to rail transport, Heathrow airport, and the M25, making it a perfect location for last-mile delivery activities.
Eesa Nasim, Sales Director at Heston Automotive said: “Having searched nearly two years for the right home to help us with our business growth objectives, we couldn’t be happier with the offering by Prologis Park Dawley Road. DC1 delivers everything we were looking for and more. We required a high-specification building that reflects our business model of providing quality high-spec vehicles to our customers and we found just that. We look forward to working with the team at Prologis as we enter this next stage of growth.”
Prologis UK recently received planning consent for an extensive refurbishment of DC7 at Dawley Road. When the refurbishment is complete, the unit will provide 26,081 sq. ft of warehouse accommodation with ancillary offices and a large, secure yard, the building also benefits from 500 kVA of power. The building will be available to lease and ready for occupation in Summer 2023.
James Straw, Associate, Capital Deployment and Leasing, Prologis UK, said: “Welcoming yet another customer to Dawley Road demonstrates the continuing high demand for prime logistics space, especially in London, where sites located close to urban areas and major road networks are perfect for last-mile delivery operations. We have lots of exciting work in the pipeline, including the refurbishment of DC7 which is available to let and is already attracting good interest ahead of the completion of the refurbishment in Summer 2023.”
Located on the aptly named Vinyl Place, Prologis Park Dawley Road was previously the home to EMI Records. Heston Automotive joins Sofia Transport, who recently leased DC2 Prologis Park Dawley Road.
