One of our key clients, John Lewis Partnership have signed a lease on a purpose built 50,000sqft distribution facility as part of Muse’s Logic Leeds site, within the Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone. The facility will boost their home delivery capability and comes as works on Victoria Gate Leeds progress towards an autumn 2016 opening. Logic Leeds has been supported by a landmark £2.5m grant agreement with Leeds City Council, funded through the government’s Building Foundations for Growth programme.

SMR Architects have developed the generic layout on which the new facility is based and will provide ongoing architectural services through to completion, including full architectural services for the fit out works. The new facility boasts specific solutions driven by operator demands, modern office space & partner facilities.

David Wells, Development Director at Muse, said:

This is one of the most significant industrial property deals in Yorkshire this year and a ringing endorsement of our Logic Leeds development.

Simon Rispin, Director of SMR, added:

It is great to have another delivery hub progressing to site, and we’re pleased the relationship with a great national company, like John Lewis, includes schemes in effect on our doorstep where we will see its benefit locally.

Works commence imminently on site, to be completed spring next year. Please check back as the scheme progresses.
