Gazeley, a global provider of sustainable logistics, has signed a major letting deal with one of the world's most recognized brands, DHL, the leading international delivery company, for a speculatively built facility at G. Park Liverpool.
Taken on a 10-year lease, the 33,645-m² building will be used as a key distribution center in the North West of England, taking full advantage of access to the regional and national motorways, most importantly the M6 and M62.
The warehouse was developed as a joint venture with MetLife Real Estate Investments and is the first unit to be constructed within the 44 acre G. Park Liverpool site. The construction of the multi user site has been fully completed and DHL will be moving into the premises during Q2 2011.
Since 2005, Gazeley has provided logistics space for DHL across its pan-European network. Significantly, this is the first deal to take place within the UK.
Bruce Topley, Development Director at Gazeley, commented: "To continue our relationship with a brand as successful as DHL is of huge importance to us. Their continued confidence in Gazeley is, we believe, testament to our industry leading construction qualities, strategic locations and the ability to meet our customer's business requirements."
