The Stoford and TPG Real Estate joint venture Icon Industrial, has submitted a planning application for a fifth development at the rapidly growing Icon Manchester Airport earlier today.
Icon Industrial has submitted two detailed planning applications that if successful, will see the partnership develop a single warehouse building of between 398,000 – 459,000 sq ft, with three-storeys of integrated office accommodation and two-storey hub offices.
Championing Icon Manchester Airport, Stoford Developments joint Managing Director, Dan Gallagher said: “Icon Manchester Airport is a hugely successful scheme that continues to stimulate the Greater Manchester economy through the flexibility the site offers to its tenants. The submission of these applications continues this theme, giving occupiers the ability to choose from a single-sided or cross-docked layout.”
Icon Manchester Airport is a 45-acre build-to-suit logistics park that offers excellent road, air and rail connections, as well as benefiting from the nearby £290 million A6 Manchester Airport Relief Road.
Unit 2 is situated between the M56 and the A538 Wilmslow Road, and its development plans form part of TPG Real Estate and Stoford Developments vision to turn Icon Industrial into a “significant” logistics platform.
Stoford’s MD adds: “The scheme has understandably attracted significant demand from businesses keen to locate here, given the strong list of existing occupiers and the site’s unrivalled airport connectivity. We believe the proposed development at Unit 2 will provide an excellent opportunity for potential occupiers in a key strategic location and continues the fulfilment of the Airport City masterplan.”
