Amazon close to Omega warehouse letting

Jessica Middleton-Pugh

The e-commerce giant is understood to have exchanged contracts to take a 357,000 sq ft warehouse within Omega South in Warrington, from LondonMetric Property.

In an announcement to the stock market this morning, LondonMetric said it had conditionally agreed a 15-year lease with “a major international retailer”. The deal is expected to become unconditional in January 2017.

The shed sits within zone 7 of Omega, the vast industrial development site being brought forward by a joint venture between Miller Developments and KUC Properties, in partnership with landowner the Homes & Communities Agency.

A year ago, LondonMetric came on board as the £30m funder for the construction of the 357,000 sq ft logistics warehouse. The project completed earlier this month.

The agreement followed LondonMetric’s £47.5m funding of The Hut Group’s 690,000 sq ft warehouse, also on Omega South, in 2014.

When contacted for a comment, a spokesman for Amazon said “we do not comment on rumours and speculation”.

LondonMetric was advised by DTRE and JLL.

Great location, near to two really congested motorways.

Can we review this product?

Nordyne: the motorways are ‘congested’ because they are key routes. Distributors want to be near to key routes – do you suggest they locate down a country lane instead?

Do freight movements occur at the same time as peak-hour commuter traffic? (Clue: no).
