Work starts on 100,000 sq ft industrial space at Muse’s Logic Leeds

Work has now started on site to build three industrial units, which will total some 100,000 sq ft, at Muse’s flagship Logic Leeds site.

The go-ahead follows the sale of all three units Muse to Leeds City Council for an undisclosed sum.

The three units, which are 33,000 sq ft, 30,000 sq ft and 37,000 sq ft respectively, are scheduled to be completed by late Spring next year.

The main contractor on the project is GMI Construction, the Leeds-based firm responsible for many projects across the region, including new stands a Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Leeds United Football Club.

This is the second land deal that Leeds City Council has concluded at the 110-acre Logic Leeds, having bought an 80,840 sq ft distribution warehouse with offices last year.

Logic Leeds, which also houses a John Lewis distribution hub, is in the Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone by Junction 45 of the M1.

James Scott, development director with national developer and regeneration specialist Muse, explained: “It’s great news that work has now started on site, compounding Logic Leeds’ reputation as a first-class destination for logistics and industrial property.

“This, coming shortly after the signing of the sale agreement between ourselves and Leeds City Council and the granting of planning permission, is a crucial step towards delivering more quality industrial space at Logic Leeds.”

The marketing agents for the three new units are the Leeds office of Knight Frank and Carter Towler.

Muse Developments is a national developer with regional operations in Manchester, London, Leeds and Glasgow. It is part of Morgan Sindall Group plc, a UK construction and regeneration group with revenue of £2.6 billion.
