New distribution space welcomed at Doncaster’s Unity

One of Yorkshire’s largest regeneration schemes has welcomed a brand new 191,000 sq ft distribution unit following completion last week.

Acting on behalf of Waystone Hargreaves Land LLP, main contractor Caddick Construction has delivered Unit B at Unity in South Yorkshire within the targeted 10-month build programme.

Known as Doncaster 191, the new unit occupies a 10-acre (4-ha) plot within Unity Connect, one of the dedicated employment areas of the scheme, which is strategically located immediately adjacent to junction 5 of the M18 motorway.

Launched to the market by joint agents Knight Frank and JLL, Doncaster 191 comprises a steel portal frame unit with profile metal sheet elevations and roof, designed to accommodate modern occupier requirements.

Internally, the property provides two floors of Grade-A office space and a 560kva power supply. With 2 ground level and 18 dock level loading doors, together with secure parking for 8 trailers and 165 cars, the launch of Doncaster 191 comes at a time of high demand for new logistics facilities, particularly in close proximity to the M18.

Doncaster 191 was delivered as part of a deal between Waystone Hargreaves Land LLP (the joint venture company behind the Unity development) and Aver Property Limited Partnership (a joint venture between Ergo Real Estate and NFU Mutual).

Martin Jepson, founding partner of Ergo Real Estate, said: “It is gratifying to see a key element of the Unity development come to fruition, offering much needed high quality Grade A space in the M18 vicinity. We look forward to formally launching the building to the market in the New Year.”

Chris Metcalfe, project director at Hargreaves Land, said: “We are very pleased to announce the completion of Doncaster 191 and delighted with how the project has progressed over the course of the last 10 months. Caddick Construction has delivered a first-class distribution facility and we anticipate strong interest within the coming months.”

Unity Connect has outline planning permission for industrial and logistics space and forms part of a wider planning permission for 2 million sq ft of commercial space and 3,100 homes across the Unity development site.
