Advised by Louch Shacklock and Partners, the UK division of DSV Solutions has entered into a contractual commitment to purchase a new 100,300 sq ft distribution centre at Haldens Parkway, Thrapston, Northamptonshire.
The scheme, known as the A1/M1 Link, will be undertaken by Holden Properties and Curtis Real Estate to provide DSV with a freehold turnkey development.
Landowner and contractor Holden Properties, with Curtis Real Estate, the property business of former ProLogis UK managing director Alan Curtis, recently secured planning consent and have now exchanged on a 29-week build contract to provide the new facility in June 2013.
David Louch of Louch Shacklock and Partners comments: “New development of this nature demonstrates the increasing level of confidence in the UK economy and the ability of developers to bring forward appropriately priced well located schemes to meet occupiers’ specific requirements.”
DSV is a global supplier of transport and logistics solutions with offices in more than 70 countries, approx. 22,000 employees worldwide and an international network of partners and agents. The company is listed on the Danish stock exchange with annual revenues of 6 billion euro for 2011.
