Trebor Developments has started on site at Lightning Park Huntingdon for a two-unit scheme comprising 126,689 sq ft and 32,638 sq ft.

The larger unit has been pre-let to DHL UK Ltd on a long-term lease and has been redesigned to accommodate several bespoke DHL design elements.

It is the third deal that Trebor and DHL have agreed together in 24 months.

DHL’s unit was originally intended for speculative development prior to discussions but will now be delivered alongside the smaller speculative unit of 32,638 sq ft, which is fully available to potential occupiers.

Main contractor, GMI Construction, is targeting practical completion before the end of 2023.

Greg Dalton, development director for Trebor said: “We’re delighted to start on site having secured planning, appointed a contractor, and agreed terms with DHL in Q1 this year. We worked closely with DHL to ensure this new build unit meets their exact requirement and also look forward to delivering a much-needed speculative new unit for local occupiers.”.

Tom Sanderson, local councillor at Huntingdonshire District Council said, “I’m really pleased that this site will be developed and improved, providing better access for local residents as well as creating new jobs for Huntingdon and the wider area. All parties have engaged positively to bring this forward.”.

Lightning Park Huntingdon is being jointly marketed by Bidwells and Savills.
