Premier logistics, industrial
and roadside opportunities

Work has commenced on site at Integra 61 delivering five new speculative units to be known as Connect at Integra 61, comprising a 342,000 sq ft industrial/logistics development of four high quality units ranging from 43,000 to 152,000 sq ft as well as a 298,000 sq ft stand-alone, 15-metre-high bay industrial/warehouse unit that will be delivered on an adjacent plot and known as Connect 298. Connect 298 will be the largest speculatively developed industrial/warehouse unit in the North East for over a decade and will fill a crucial void in the regional supply pipeline. Citrus secured a £75m forward funding deal to deliver this phase of speculative development.

GMI Construction, the appointed contractor for the build of Connect at Integra 61, has started works on site at the mixed-use scheme with the units scheduled for completion in summer 2023.

Integra 61 is one of the North East’s most significant regeneration projects with outline consent in place for over 3 million sq ft of employment space with the potential to create some 4,000 jobs.  Already home to Amazon’s 2m sq ft Fulfilment Centre, occupiers can choose design and build packages for units to meet their specific requirements, and this speculative phase of development will satisfy those companies looking for space that is already under construction.

David Cullingford, Project Lead for Integra 61 and Citrus, said; “There is a huge amount of activity underway at Integra 61 with the development taking place on the Connect industrial units as well as the construction of new homes and roadside units.

“The development is making a significant contribution to the regional pipeline for industrial/logistics accommodation and to ease the well-documented shortages in the North East. This is a thriving region with a superb workforce and businesses and we are bringing more jobs and opportunities with this next multi-million-pound investment at Integra 61. It has been a pivotal year for development and it’s fantastic to see it taking shape and progressing with the new Connect units under construction.”
