Prologis has secured outline planning permission for an 887,000 sq ft manufacturing and distribution development at Hams Hall in Birmingham.

Known as Prologis Park Hams Hall, the scheme is the final large-scale development opportunity at Hams Hall, an established multi-modal site at the heart of the UK transport network. Located next to Junction 9 of the M42 motorway, Hams Hall is also close to the M6 toll, M6 and M5 motorways.

The park will also have access to the nearby intermodal rail freight terminal at Hams Hall.

Prologis expects to start infrastructure work early next year, in preparation for construction of the first buildings, which are scheduled to begin in summer 2018.

“Hams Hall is a prime logistics location for the West Midlands,” said Alan Sarjant, senior vice-president, Prologis UK. “This is a highly supply constrained market, so we are delighted that we have been able to bring this site forward. There is strong demand for both manufacturing and distribution facilities in Birmingham and a great deal of interest in Prologis Park Hams Hall.”

Prologis owns and manages approximately 2m sq ft of logistics and industrial space on Birmingham’s M42 corridor and 24m sq ft across the UK as of June 30, 2017.
