Knight Frank has been appointed to provide estate, property and facilities management services for DP World London Gateway Logistics Park, a new development in Stanford-le-Hope in Essex.
DP World London Gateway has detailed consent to develop nine million square feet (836,000 square metres) of B8 distribution space over 560 acres (226 ha), making it the largest logistics development in the South-East.
The park is next to DP World London Gateway Port, the UK’s newest deep-sea container terminal, which provides fast and direct access into London and the South-East, Europe’s largest consumer market area.
The first building, the 180,000 sq ft DP World London Gateway Logistics Centre, opened in April 2015, and a new speculative B8 unit of 316,000 sq ft will complete very shortly.
Nick Orbell, estates manager at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park, said: “This major logistics park sets a new standard of development, and we are impressed by the recognition and effort shown by Knight Frank to deliver the highest quality estate management services to the Park occupiers and DP World London Gateway’s customers.”
Tim Robinson, partner and head of property asset management at Knight Frank, said the deal would help give the firm “the opportunity to demonstrate our extensive surveying, facility management and technological capabilities working in partnership with such an innovative client”.
