Steelwork has been completed on a new speculatively built 125,000 sq ft distribution unit on the M1 corridor at Barnsley in South Yorkshire.



Maple 125 is the latest scheme to be brought forward by Bramall Properties at Junction 36 of the M1 at Tankersley.

The high-specification distribution unit is due to be completed in Q1 2021 and Rebecca Schofield of Knight Frank said: “There is a lack of supply along this stretch so we are anticipating good interest in the site. It provides much needed addition of quality distribution space, to fulfil the requirements which we are seeing in the market”

Rob Whatmuff, Director at joint agents Colliers International, said: “Maple 125 is on schedule for completion in March 2021 and with demand outstripping supply for Grade A accommodation in prime motorway linked locations, we anticipate Maple 125 contributing to a continuation of strong logistics take up through 2021.”

The specification includes 12m eaves, a 50m yard, 12 dock level loading doors, two ground level loading doors, 23 HGV spaces, 80 car parking spaces, fitted office accommodation and up to 1MVA power supply.
