Consent for 365,000 sq ft North Yorks unit
Specialist logistics developer Citivale has secured reserved matters approval for the first building at its Greenbox Thirsk site.
In May this year, Citivale launched its Greenbox brand, backed by Partners Group, which will bring forward schemes with leading sustainability credentials.
Unit 1 at Thirsk will comprise 365,000 sq ft, with a further two units ultimately taking the site to 825,000 sq ft in total.
The scheme is located in an established distribution and manufacturing hub, less than five minutes from both Junction 49 of the A1(M) and the A19 at Thirsk, serving the North East as well as the Yorkshire market.
Neighbouring occupiers to Greenbox Thirsk include Cargill, Inspired Pet Nutrition, Severfield, Cleveland Steel & Tubes, Wetherby Group and I’Anson.
In line with Greenbox’s ESG commitments, Unit 1 at Greenbox Thirsk will target net-zero carbon in construction, BREEAM Excellent and EPC A ratings. The roofs will be 100% photovoltaic panel ready, 10% of parking spaces will be for electric cars (future-proofed for all spaces), and CAT-A fitted office space is proposed with LED lighting and air-source heat pumps.
Bespoke build, to individual occupiers’ specific requirements, can also be accommodated.
James Appleton-Metcalfe, founder of Citivale, said: “We have been working closely with North Yorkshire Council to bring forward this Grade A space at Greenbox Thirsk. We now have an oven-ready site and are in discussions with multiple occupiers, and we will shortly commence works, starting with the access into the site.”
Colliers and Carter Towler are retained as letting agents for Greenbox Thirsk.
