Proposals for two new industrial/warehouse developments at a £100 million Manchester Airport site have been given the go-ahead.
Manchester City Council has approved plans for two highly specified developments of 102,500 sq ft and 138,375 sq ft at Icon Manchester Airport, the rapidly growing global logistics area of Manchester’s Airport City.
Icon Industrial, a joint venture between Stoford and TPG Real Estate – said that the latest developments will meet rising occupational demand at the 45-acre build-to-suit logistics park, which has outline planning consent for circa 1 million sq ft.
Approval for units 3 and 4 of the scheme comes just weeks after planners rubber stamped Icon Industrial’s proposals for an 11.6-acre logistics and global content creation studio at Manchester Airport on behalf of online beauty and wellbeing retailer, The Hut Group.
Dan Gallagher, Joint Managing Director of Stoford Developments, said: “We’re pleased to announce planning approval for units 3 and 4 of Icon Manchester Airport. These developments offer an excellent opportunity to relocate to a key strategic location in the North West, with unrivalled airport connectivity and a strong list of current occupiers.
“Icon Manchester Airport is a unique and exciting scheme that will continue the fulfillment of the Airport City masterplan, expanding and enhancing the logistical facilities on site. We are already seeing significant interest in the development.”
