Construction begins on Phase Two of the DP World London Gateway Logistics Centre

Expansion will provide 165,000 sq ft of new warehousing & ancillary space at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park

London, UK, December 13th, 2016: Work to create 165,000 sq ft of new, cross-dock distribution warehousing space at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park is underway.

The space will form Phase 2 of the 387,000 sq ft DP World London Gateway Logistics Centre. Phase one, comprising 207,000sq ft of warehouse and office space was completed in early 2015.

The extension to this facility, available for occupation from May 2017, will see 155,000 sq ft of warehouse accommodation plus 10,000 sq ft of ancillary space in two pods and an additional 15,000 sq ft of office space available for separate occupation.

This development provides a rare opportunity for fast occupation of a high-spec cross-dock distribution warehouse facility, in a prime South East location, adjacent to the rapidly expanding, state-of-the-art, deep-sea port of London Gateway.

Tenants located at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park benefit from the hub’s location, just 10 miles from the M25 and 25 miles from Central London.

A large labour pool of 3.1million people live within a 45 minute drive and a specialist in-house team are able to assist and advise on creating additional supply chain value. In addition, full-service estates management is provided by Knight Frank.

Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director, DP World London Gateway, said: “We’re pleased to announce the commencement of work on further warehousing space at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park, which will form an extension to the existing DP World London Gateway Logistics Centre.

“This is a unique opportunity for a company to locate part of its operations at one of the UK’s most integrated logistics hubs. DP World London Gateway Port is witnessing exponential growth, with a number of new deep-sea shipping services to new markets, so now is a great time to capitalise on available space at the Logistics Park and engage with us to create even more value in the supply chain.”
