Gazeley has completed and launched “Altitude”, a 574,000 sq ft logistics warehouse at Magna Park, Milton Keynes.

At 21 metres high, Altitude is understood to be the largest and tallest speculative logistics warehouse in the UK, providing Gazeley said "the market with an effective distribution facility that sets the benchmark in terms of flexibility of design and specification".

Construction of the development began in August 2017 and took 26 weeks to complete.

Gazeley said "unique features" include:

Enhanced mezzanine capacity and an increased number of pallet positions - at no extra cost to the customer.

Double deck loading doors in every position, at a ratio of one door per 4,500 sq ft - reducing time as well as financial and environmental operating costs for occupiers.

An increased incoming power load provision of up to 4 MVA to cater for the evolving needs of customers.

Designed to the WELL Ready Standard certification, making the building a healthier and more productive space for its occupants.

Joe Garwood, Development Director, Gazeley, said: “Magna Park, Milton Keynes is already one of the UK’s most established hubs for logistics and the development of Altitude will only serve to strengthen that position and appeal to occupiers, as a leading location for ecommerce, logistics and distribution companies.

"Altitude brings together a combination of innovation, technology, efficiency, sustainability and intelligent logistical thinking from some of the most experienced figures in the business to create a building that sets a new benchmark for the industry.”

Magna Park, Milton Keynes is home to the distribution operations of brands including John Lewis, River Island, Waitrose, UK Mail.
