Logistics development to be built adjacent to Heathrow


SEGRO and Aviva Investors, through their joint venture, Airport Property Partnership (APP), have launched ‘Skyline’, a new logistics development adjacent to Heathrow Airport.

The development will initially consist of two warehouse units of 73,530 square feett and 80,440 square feet. Both have the potential for office space across the first and second floors. The units will be complete in Summer 2016.

Located close to Heathrow Airport and its cargo terminal, Skyline offers international connectivity and easy access to the national motorway network from the M4 and M25.

APP and SEGRO’s business unit director for Greater London, Alan Holland, says: “Skyline is a development in the right place at the right time. The connectivity to Heathrow, to London and to the UK’s motorway network make the location the ideal place for business and will create employment opportunities for the local area.

“Based on feedback from our customers and our expertise in the Heathrow market, we are confident that the new units are what companies are looking for but cannot find in today’s market.

“The Skyline development will ensure that we can offer our customers a wide range of different sized warehouses in locations which meet their needs.”

The new development will offer large, secure yard areas, with 12 metre eaves height, and APP is aiming to gain top environmental ratings for the build.

Other occupiers near the logistics warehouses include DB Schenker, Rolls-Royce and Panalpina.
