SGI plans 60-acre industrial site next to Thorpe Park

Scarborough Group International is planning an industrial and logistics park on the 60-acre site Brown Moor, next to Thorpe Park at Leeds.

The company has put in an outline planning application to develop up to 60,000 sq m of industrial and logistics space with ancillary office space. The buildings will be capable of being brought forward in multiple phases to respond to market interest and occupier demand.

The application also includes details of the estate infrastructure, public footpaths and other public rights of way which will as part of the proposals will be enhanced, as well as the site landscaping.

‘Integral’, as the development has been named, is projected as being the home of companies in advanced manufacturing, logistics and industrial sectors, adding to the strong economic mix of east Leeds and providing hundreds of new jobs.

Adam Varley, Development Director at SGI, said: “The industrial and logistics sector is undergoing significant change.  Supply chain resilience, rising energy costs, smart infrastructure and the continued growth of e-commerce are forcing businesses to rethink their real estate requirements. Decision making factors such as accessibility, cost and labour pool, while still relevant, are now being overtaken by the need to attract and retain the very best talent.

“The design of Integral scheme at Thorpe Park Leeds responds to the shifts in the market by providing industrial spaces that are integrated into a dynamic and established mixed-use community.”
