Chetwoods are excited to announce that we will be working with client Gazeley, on the development of the UK’s first three-storey logistics facility.
The warehouse will comprise over 426,000 sqft of space over three levels allowing for either multiple or single tenant occupancy. The building will be used as a ‘last mile’ logistics hub for London and surrounding areas, targeting e-commerce, distribution and logistics occupiers. This development is in line with the GLA’s commitment to land being made available for ‘last mile’ distribution close to central London and the Northern Isle of Dogs.
The development is the first of its kind in the UK and meets the needs of London’s economy and growing population. With scarce land available in London and an increasingly on-demand economy, distribution and logistics operations must find new and innovative ways to keep up with increasing delivery volumes demanded in shorter time periods. G Park London Docklands utilises the land available to deliver the maximum amount of space to potential occupiers.
The site is opposite London City airport, immediately next to West Silvertown District London Rail (DLR) station on North Woolwich Road. With unparalleled access to serve the City of London and 5.6 million people living within a 30-minute drive, this is a genuine last mile, ultra-urban logistics opportunity.
This is the first three-storey warehouse in the UK and will utilise platforms to allow HGVs and other vehicles to access each level. Each storey will comprise 140,000 sqft of space with 26 dock doors and 4 access doors on each level. The site will contain 350 car parking spaces and around 75,000 sqft of ancillary office space. G Park London Docklands will include a range of sustainability features such as the provision of electric charging points for vehicles, wellness initiatives to improve the working environment for people and a BREEAM Very Good rating.
