MOUNTPARK ANNOUNCES 359,500 SQ FT INVENTORY DEVELOPMENT IN BRISTOL.

Mountpark Logistics, a leading developer of industrial and logistics property, announced today that it has started construction on an inventory cross-docked unit of 359,500 sq ft at Mountpark Bristol 360 in Central Park, Avonmouth. The building is due to complete in July 2021. Designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certification with an EPC A rating, the facility includes features, such as rooftop Solar PV array and battery storage that will help maximise operational efficiency. The building, which has the potential to attract several hundred new jobs to the local area, has been designed to enhance employee wellbeing, with measures such as natural daylight in the warehouse and an office rooftop terrace. Close to the new M49 (J1), Mountpark Bristol 360 is within easy reach of the M4, M5 and M48 motorways and a 4.5 hour drive time of 85% of the UK population. Intermodal facilities and international transport connections are available at the Central Park rail freight terminal, at Avonmouth and Royal Portbury docks and at Bristol Airport. “Mountpark Bristol 360 is a prime site at the economic heart of the South West,” said David Carvey, Development Director UK & Ireland, Mountpark. “There is a shortage of Grade A stock in the region and rising demand. Central Park is an established distribution location and we believe this new development provides one of the best logistics property opportunities on the market.” JLL, Colliers International and DTRE are acting for Mountpark.  The Development Manager is Stoford.

MOUNTPARK LETS 307,807 SQ FT TO GOUSTO AT WARRINGTON.

Mountpark Logistics, a leading developer of industrial and logistics property, today announced that it has leased a 307,807 sq ft distribution centre at Mountpark Warrington Omega II, to leading recipe box company, Gousto. Following strong trading from the start of the year, with revenues for the first quarter reaching 70% year-on-year growth, the lockdown has accelerated the growth of the online grocery market and demand for Gousto’s recipe boxes is rapidly increasing. Revenues for the first six months of 2020 surpassed the £83m of sales reported for the whole of 2019.  Gousto is therefore expanding its distribution network, helping it to at least triple capacity by 2022, with this new facility being a key part of the expansion programme. “The recent lockdown accelerated structural trends which were already firmly underway, opening up the recipe box market to a far larger audience. Now, even as lockdown eases, we’ve maintained record sales, with new customers won over by our market leading choice and variety, and the convenience of having fresh ingredients delivered to their door with no hassle or food waste” said Timo Boldt, CEO and Founder of Gousto. “We’re excited to open up this new energy-efficient facility at Mountpark Warrington Omega ll to help us step change capacity, enabling us to deliver even more Gousto boxes to households across the country, as we get closer to our mission of becoming the UK’s most-loved way to eat dinner.” The transaction is the first letting at Mountpark Warrington Omega II and was signed before practical completion. Mountpark is now working with Gousto to integrate elements of the company’s fit-out specification within the build programme. The Gousto facility is planned to go live at the end of 2021, and will bring over 400 permanent new jobs to the region, once fully operational. “We are delighted to welcome Gousto to Mountpark Warrington Omega II and to be working with the team to adapt the facility to meet the company’s exact operational requirements,” said Tom Kilmister, Development Director, Mountpark UK & Ireland. “Our aim is to offer customers the best property opportunities on the market and at Mountpark Warrington Omega II we are developing high quality units at one of North West’s premier logistics locations.” Construction at Mountpark Warrington Omega II 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 225,000 sq ft, is programmed to complete in summer 2021.  Designed to help occupiers become Carbon Zero, each building at Mountpark Warrington Omega II has a rooftop Solar PV array and battery storage system that will meet around 50% of the facility’s regulated energy. Mountpark Warrington Omega II is at the gateway to Omega South, part of the 575 acre mixed use Omega scheme at Junction 8 of the M62 north of Warrington, midway between Liverpool and Manchester.  The first phase of Mountpark Warrington Omega is let to Royal Mail and the Delivery Group. Other occupiers at Omega include Brakes, Hermes, Travis Perkins, ASDA, The Hut Group, Dominos and Amazon. CBRE and JLL acted for Mountpark and Gousto was represented by SBH.
