4 Dec 2013 - The SWIP Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust (AIPUT) is pleased to announce a new Grade A warehouse facility of 1,225 sq m (13,190 sq ft) at its prime logistics centre, Radius Park, located at London Heathrow Airport.
Unit 4 will be available to occupy in early 2014 following an extensive refurbishment, and will deliver quality Grade A accommodation in a prime strategic location at the international hub airport. The modern unit offers several key attributes – the building is self-contained with modern office accommodation and a dedicated and secure yard and car parking, and a flexible warehouse with 6.43m eaves and two high-level roller shutter doors.
Radius Park is a vibrant logistics centre of 22,300 sq m (240,000 sq ft), and supports a number of global airport users within its secure environment. These include Virgin Atlantic, Air Canada, dnata, Agility Logistics, Brinks Security and Gate Gourmet.
The park offers excellent connectivity to the airport, coupled with 24/7 access and security, and is within walking distance of Hatton Cross tube/bus terminal. The park also offers quick access to the Heathrow Cargo Centre and Control Posts 21 and 24, in addition to the airport’s Terminals, and connects well with Central London.
Nick Smith, Fund manager for AIPUT at SWIP commented: “We are excited by this opportunity to offer a unit of 1,225 sq m in such a strategic location with the prospect of attracting a new customer to the park. Self-contained units of this quality within a secure estate, underpinned by exceptional connectivity to the airport and its surrounding transport network, are a true rarity at Heathrow. We expect the business and operational efficiencies that our unit offers to be highly attractive to responsible forward thinking global air freight and aviation service providers.
“Our considerable investment to upgrade both the unit and the wider estate should make this a leading location of choice for best-of-breed airport service providers”.
