AEW Are Gobbling Up Midlands Industrial

Keep on trucking ...

Another day, another Midlands' megashed development falls to investor AEW.

The latest 431K SF Golden Triangle logistics unit is to be developed as part of a £250M partnership between AEW and Allianz.

Real estate manager AEW has agreed to buy Fradley 432 at Fradley Park in Lichfield from Evans Property Group, which will then develop the site for the joint venture.

Fradley Park Industrial Estate occupiers include Tesco, Great Bear Distribution, DHL and Palletways. The site is on the A38.

The new unit, with a clear haunch height of 15 metres, is due for completion on-site in early spring next year.

The deal is the second step in AEW's £250M move into logistics property development in partnership with Allianz. It comes weeks after the partnership announced their first development of a 525K SF unit, also in the East Midlands.

The project is situated at Castle Donnington's East Midlands Distribution Centre  and was acquired with planning permission from CWC Group. The 25-acre site is next to the 1M SF Marks & Spencer national distribution centre.

Due for practical completion in December, the new-build project will have a clear haunch height of 18 metres.
