Plans Unveiled for New Units at £300m Durham mixed-use Scheme.

The North East property developer and investment group, Citrus Durham has announced that it is developing plans for a major, new four-unit scheme in Durham.

Totalling 337,225 sq ft, the new industrial units will be located within the £300m mixed-use Integra 61 development at J61 of the A1 Motorway.

The master plan for the 20-acre plot incorporates four high-quality units at sizes of 42,000 sq ft, 63,000 sq ft, 84,000 sq ft and 148,225 sq ft to satisfy huge regional demand.

Commenting on the development, David Cullingford, Project Lead for Integra 61 and Citrus Durham, said: “This further multi-million-pound investment in the project demonstrates our continuing commitment to the region and our objective of creating the premier business location in County Durham.

“The shortages of grade A space are well documented, especially following the first half of the year where take-up increased by 56% on the year-on-year figures in the North East.

“These much-needed new units will help businesses to grow and generate further jobs for local people. We look forward to getting construction underway early in the new year.”

The new development will take centre stage at the 205-acre Integra 61 scheme, which has outlined planning consent for over 3 million sq ft of employment space. The large-scale site also has the potential to create some 4,000 jobs and is already home to Amazon’s 2 million sq ft fulfilment centre.

Detailed plans for the new units will be submitted to Durham County Council in January next year. Meanwhile, Citrus Durham is already talking to contractors about a start on site in April 2022, which would lead to the first buildings being available by December 2022.

Integra 61 is the largest logistics and manufacturing opportunity in a generation in the North East and offers occupiers design and build packages for units up to 500,000 sq ft.

Robert Rae, Principal and Managing Director at Avison and Young, said: “Integra 61 has the capacity to satisfy occupier requirements of all sizes and requirements and as such is a huge asset to the North East at a time when supply levels are so critically low. These new four units are sized to align with the huge demand that we are witnessing and will give occupiers the opportunity to be part of a superb mixed-use development in one of the most strategic locations in the North East.”
