Prologis is speculatively developing four industrial and distribution buildings totalling 28,800 m2, at Prologis Park Hemel Hempstead which are expected to complete in autumn 2018. The units are the first to be constructed on the park, a 35-acre site that Prologis acquired in March this year. The speculative scheme can meet a range of occupier requirements, from 1,020 m2-15,700 m2, as two of the new buildings have been designed to be subdivided.
Each facility will be built to achieve a minimum BREEAM ‘Very Good’ accreditation, the best possible EPC rating for its size and each will include a rooftop solar installation.
Prologis Park Hemel Hempstead, which is at Maylands Gateway, initiates development within the town’s new Enviro-tech Enterprise Zone. When complete, the park will provide up to 54,350 m2 of industrial and distribution space, together with a £2.5 million investment in local highway infrastructure. Prologis will also create a network of safe pedestrian and cycle routes around the site and along Buncefield Lane, as well as a new ‘pocket park’, which the Company will maintain for people who live and work locally.
