Knight Webb have announced the completion of a new 250,000 sq ft built to suit distribution warehouse pre-let to XPO Logistics at Evander’s 10 acre Grand Central, Trafford Park development site in Manchester.
Construction of the building commenced in August last year and was completed on time, on budget. It features 237,000 sq ft of warehouse space, together with 13,000 sq ft of office accommodation over two storeys.
XPO Logistics have signed a 15 year lease and will use the facility to distribute products for the fast expanding Misguided fashion brand.
Commenting on the completion, Knight Webb Director Richard Webb said “We are very pleased to continue our long and successful relationship with Evander as a key member of their project delivery team. This project was challenging in terms of speculating planning and work-up costs prior to vacant possession. To achieve a pre-let of this size and specification within a couple of months after lease expiry was a pretty good result. We look forward to working with Evander again and many more projects to come”
