HBD is busy preparing for future development at Wakefield Hub, working in close collaboration with our joint venture partners Yorkcourt. The first task at hand will be to enhance the on-site infrastructure, with the development of the access highways serving the scheme.
It’s an exciting prospect to see work take shape on the approved Kitwave project funded by HBD, following the granting of planning permission in the summer of 2019. Located at Junction 30 of the M62, Wakefield Hub is ideal for companies seeking to maximise the efficiency of their logistical network.
The location is close to both the M1 and AI(M), under 10 miles from Leeds and less than 50 miles from Manchester. What’s more, it is perfectly situated to serve both Liverpool Docks and Hull Port. In fact, the whole country opens up from this intricately connected distribution site.
Wakefield Hub is already home to NewCold, with a fully occupied building on a plot adjacent to the Kitwave project. There is, however, plenty more opportunity for other businesses to take advantage of the wider site, which stretches across 200 acres and has the potential to accommodate a million sq ft of bespoke design and build. With a growing working age population within easy distance, finding the right employees should not be an issue either.
Further important announcements on the Wakefield Hub site are anticipated soon, so watch this page for further updates.
