Sunrise Real Estate, in partnership with our development partner Panattoni, have put the first spade in the ground to start speculatively developing our 417,570 sq ft logistics facility at Doncaster.

Winvic Construction Ltd has been appointed as general contractor for the construction of Panattoni Doncaster 420, following the approval of planning consent from Doncaster Council in February. Completion of the development is expected in January 2024.

The development, which is the largest speculative logistics facility under construction in Yorkshire, is strategically located close to junction 3 of the M18, the M1, A1(M) and M62 motorways. The facility benefits from its easy accessibility to the ports of Hull, Immingham and Liverpool.

Sunrise Real Estate continue to deliver on their commitment to developing sustainable buildings. This facility will be Net Zero Carbon and is being built to a target BREEAM sustainability rating of ‘Excellent’ and an EPC rating of ‘A’. Other sustainability features include 20% electric vehicle charging spaces, 15% roof lights and the roof being designed to hold up to 100% PV panels.

The project comprises 37 loading doors, an 85m deep yard with parking for 74 HGVs, 358 parking spaces, 15m clear internal height and up to 1.5 MVa of power.

Matthew Stevens, Head of Development at Sunrise, comments: “We are delighted to be working with Panattoni once again on this speculative development in the South Yorkshire region. The project offers an excellent opportunity to deliver on our commitment to fund high quality, carbon net zero buildings which have excellent transport links for our tenants, whilst also providing social value through job creation and sustainable development to local communities.”

CPP, Colliers International and Cushman & Wakefield have been engaged as letting agents and will be marketing the new units to potential occupiers.
