PLP lets 137,000 sq ft at Bessemer Park

Another tenant has been secured at the Sheffield logistics development, with Dormole subsidiary Forgefix committing to a unit due to reach completion this month.

Tool distributor Dormole has taken Unit 4, in a deal that means more than a third of phase two has been let prior to construction completion. This builds upon the success of phase one, which saw 100% of the development leased prior to practical completion.

There are now only two units remaining, 97,000 sq ft and 294,000 sq ft, which will complete shortly and are available to lease. ITM Power took an 83,000 sq ft pre-let last April.

The development has been delivered to best in class specification and in accordance with the UK Green Building Council’s Carbon Net Zero standard.

Richard Morton, Dormole group operations director, said: “With immediate access to the M1 and accessibility to the UK at large from a central position, and with the PLP Bessemer Park development sharing our business values in ‘high quality’ and ‘environmental consideration’, it is the ideal development and location for the business’s future.”

Hugh Chesterton, development director at PLP, commented: “We are really pleased to welcome Forgefix to PLP Bessemer Park. This new leasing is another stamp of approval for Sheffield’s premier industrial and logistics location.”

Knight Frank, Moriarty & Co and CBRE are the appointed leasing agents for the development. Forgefix was represented by Blue Tile Property Consultants.
