A LEADING developer of industrial and logistics property is funding a speculative development at Omega South in Great Sankey.

Located at the gateway site to Omega South, the new 735,000 sq ft development is the second phase of Mountpark Logistic's Mountpark Warrington Omega and will comprise three logistics centres of 307,000 sq ft, 203,000 sq ft and 225,000 sq ft.

Each building will include solar panels array that will meet around 50 per cent of the facility’s regulated energy.

The first two units are due to complete in January 2021.

The first phase of Mountpark Warrington Omega was completed in March last year.

Tom Kilmister, development director, Mountpark UK & Ireland, said: "Omega South is at the heart of the north west motorway network and offers one of the best logistics property opportunities in the region.

"This investment allows us to deliver speculative logistics space in a region where there is a shortage of Grade A stock, as well as giving us an opportunity to expand one of the core assets within our portfolio.”

David Milloy, managing director, Miller Developments and director of OWL added: “Omega is a great example of public and private sector organisations working together to attract investment to the north west.

“The first phase of Mountpark Warrington Omega is proving to be a great success and we are delighted that Mountpark has decided to fund a further phase to meet the strong demand for modern, energy-efficient logistics facilities.”

Mountpark let 346,153 sq ft to Royal Mail for a new parcel hub prior to completion and subsequently let 137,865 sq ft to The Delivery Group for a specialist mail hub.
