Dusk doubles down at Doncaster iPort

Landlord Verdion has let a 170,000 sq ft warehouse to the homewares retailer, adding to the 120,000 sq ft the firm signed for in 2021.

Luxury retailer Dusk will take immediate occupation of iP2f, which comes in at a total 174,381 sq ft including a 169,317 sq ft warehouse plus offices and welfare space.

The firm took the adjacent 119,060 sq ft iP2g facility in April 2021.

Further buildings up to 330,000 sq ft have been developed speculatively and are available for immediate occupation, all designed to EPC A rating and BREEAM Very Good, said Verdion.

The final phases of development – two further buildings of 323,500 sq ft and 846,250 sq ft respectively – are available on a build-to-suit basis with development-ready sites.

The iPort Rail facility, the site’s on-site rail freight terminal, takes daily services to/from Southampton, Felixstowe and Teesport and is increasingly being used by iPort occupiers and other businesses across the region looking to cut carbon within their supply chains, the group said.

A new operator contract was agreed with Medlog in December 2023 and Verdion is now developing the facility’s second phase, doubling both its size and capacity by the end of 2024.

Jamie Young, development surveyor at Verdion, said: “Dusk’s decision to increase its space at iPort is great news. Creating a logistics hub where occupiers can easily expand as their businesses grow has been part of our vision from the start and our asset and facilities management teams work closely with tenants to understand their requirements.

“This is the third company based here that has taken further space. At the same time, we remain focussed on bringing new names to Doncaster, with immediate opportunities and build to suit capacity.”

Gent Visick, CBRE and Colliers are the retained leasing agents for iPort. Blacks Solicitors advised Dusk.
