National retailer Next has taken the 123,000 sq ft Aspect warehouse at West Moor Park in Doncaster.

CB Richard Ellis’s Sheffield-based Industrial Agency negotiated the letting on a 15 year lease, for an undisclosed sum, on behalf of IM Properties, while JJA Consulting represented Next, which already occupies a neighbouring 700,000 sq ft warehouse.

The deal completes the letting of the scheme and follows a number of significant deals i9nvolving distribution facilities in the Yorkshire region, including Amazon, which acquired space at Vulcan in Doncaster and ASOS, at Crossflow, in Barnsley.

CB Richard Ellis senior director in Sheffield, Roger Haworth, said: “To have achieved full occupation of the speculatively developed accommodation at West Moor Park is excellent news for the scheme and region.

Last year brought a host of major deals to large retailers who have snapped up large, modern 400,000sq ft plus accommodation. These high take-up levels will now pave the way for pre-let deals to emerge throughout the next 12 months, improving the prospects for new development within Yorkshire.”

IM Properties investment manager, John Hammond, said: “We are delighted to have facilitated this expansion for Next.”

West Moor Park, off J4 of the M18, is home to flagship occupiers IKEA, Fellowes and the Scotts Company (UK).
