Icon Industrial reveals plans for industrial development at Manchester airport

Icon Industrial has revealed plans to develop a new industrial unit and accompanying office space at Unit 2 of its Manchester airport site.

It has submitted two planning applications for single aspect and cross-dock developments.

If the applications are approved, Icon Industrial will develop a single warehouse building of between 398,000 and 459,000 sq ft, which will contain three storeys of integrated office accommodation and two-storey hub offices.

Icon Industrial is a joint venture between Stoford Developments and TPG Real Estate.

Dan Gallagher, joint managing director at Stoford Developments, said: “Icon Manchester Airport is a hugely successful scheme that continues to stimulate the Greater Manchester economy through the flexibility the site offers to its tenants.

“The submission of these applications continues this theme, giving occupiers the ability to choose from a single-sided or cross-docked layout.

“The scheme has understandably attracted significant demand from businesses keen to locate here, given the strong list of existing occupiers and the site’s unrivalled airport connectivity.

“We believe the proposed development at Unit 2 will provide an excellent opportunity for potential occupiers in a key strategic location and continues the fulfilment of the Airport City master plan.”
