Prologis begins construction at Beddington Lane site in London (GB)

Prologis’ investment into London’s last-mile logistics infrastructure has reached c. €2.5m, as construction begins at its Beddington Lane site in Croydon. The latest scheme from the global logistics real estate leader will provide an extra c. 8,727m2 of sustainable facilities close to central London.


Expected to be completed next year, the extension of Prologis Park Beddington Lane will measure, reduce and mitigate embodied carbon in accordance with the UK Green Building Council net-zero carbon framework and be future-proofed for fleet electrification. This is in line with Prologis’ commitment to net-zero emissions by 2040.


Paul Weston, Regional Head of Prologis UK, said: “With continued growth in online shopping, there is a huge demand for logistics infrastructure – for every 1,000 new homes there are 1,000 letterboxes for deliveries to reach. Last-mile logistic centres – such as our Croydon scheme – provide the critical infrastructure London needs to grow economically as well as to achieve its net-zero and housing targets. As a member of the London business community, we are dedicated to providing innovative solutions and will continue to push the needle – be it renewable energy, electric vehicle prioritisation or multi-level logistics – in order to support the city’s economy and environment.”
