GLi, a joint venture between KSP and PATRIZIA, has received planning permission for its second Park Royal site, PR2, a new prime ultra-sustainable warehouse.
PR2 is at the heart of Park Royal with connectivity via the North Circular Road, A41 and M25, and complements the GLi’s existing PR1 scheme, already pre-let to Classic Fine Foods.
The new Park Royal site will be highly energy efficient and redeveloped on a net-zero carbon basis with sustainability a key priority.
It will be 100 per cent electric powered, offer fully equipped car and delivery van EV charging points and will be built to accommodate future battery storage in line with tenant requirements. PR2 will also deliver biodiverse landscaping and rainwater harvesting.
David Johnson, chief executive officer at KSP, said: “We are delighted to be able to move forward on this ground-breaking, sustainable industrial unit in such a fantastic location so close to Central London.
“Its construction will help support the local economy and job creation and the unit will provide future occupiers with an ultra-sustainable building adhering to strict energy efficiency targets. Our schemes will also allow businesses to lower their energy costs, while supporting the environment.”
Luke LeBrun, director, asset management at PATRIZIA, said: “In order to meet the challenges posed by rapid urbanisation and the demand to decarbonise, we must deliver logistics assets that truly place sustainability at their heart.
“Our GLi platform aims to deliver best-in-class urban logistics properties in key parts of London from the ground up, which will play a key role in serving Londoners in a cleaner, more efficient way that drives maximum value for all stakeholders.”
