GLP leases G-Park Doncaster Mammoth 602 to Maersk

GLP, the leading global investment manager and business builder in logistics, digital infrastructure, renewable energy and related technologies, has announced that it has signed a 15-year lease for its G-Park Doncaster Mammoth 602 development with Maersk, the Danish shipping and logistics company. The unit totals 601,761 SQ FT and is the largest and most sustainable logistics building in the North of England.

G-Park Doncaster is situated in the logistics capital of the North, just 6 miles from the centre of Doncaster, providing easy access to all parts of the UK and mainland Europe via its central position, along with a vast skilled workforce. The site has superb connections via road, rail and air, located off Junction 4 of the M18 near five major motorways including M18, M1, A1(M), M180 and M62, and is in close proximity to Doncaster railway station, Doncaster International Railport, and Robin Hood Airport.

Mammoth 602 is a strong example of GLP’s commitment to sustainability across its developments. It is GLP’s third building to be net zero carbon for construction, in line with the UKGBC framework, and is part of the Planet Mark accreditation scheme which helps to further reduce the carbon footprint for the occupier. In addition to an array of GLP standard sustainability features, including rainwater harvesting and a building analytics system, the development is home to unique initiatives such as the ‘Tiny Forest’. This is a collaboration with Earth Watch and Rame Consulting to establish a small, densely planted group of trees, encouraging biodiversity and carbon sequestration, whilst also acting as a wellness feature for tenants and the local community.

The development benefits from best-in-class specification that is built for logistics, including two 50m service yards, 20m clear internal height, 60 dock levellers, 16 large dock levellers, 24 level access and 4 van level access doors with visibility from the M18. There is also 28,762 SQ FT of office space within the building, 217 HGV parking spaces, and 372 car park spaces.

Adrienne Howells, Senior Development Director at GLP Europe, said: “The signing of this lease is a great milestone for our G-Park Doncaster development. Mammoth 602 offers a unique opportunity to lease a large-scale site in a prime logistics location in the North and exemplifies GLP’s innovative and comprehensive commitment to sustainability. Doncaster is already home to a variety of top-tier companies, including Next, Amazon, IKEA, B&Q and Asos, and we look forward to welcoming Maersk as a new customer.”
