Property group Goodman has submitted a planning application to speculatively develop a 245,000sq m industrial distribution unit in Kingsnorth Commercial Park.
The £25 million Anglesea Capital-funded project includes around 1,750sq m of office space, aimed at growing businesses in Medway, as well as attracting companies from outside the area.
Specifications for the industrial unit include a 15m internal height, 50m service yard, 24 loading doors and 236 car spaces. Sustainability features will include electric car charging, solar thermal and rainwater harvesting.
Charles Crossland, managing director of Goodman, said: “We are excited about the potential for a new industrial distribution unit at Kingsnorth. It is a site primed and ready for development with a turnaround time of just six to nine months to build a fully operational logistics centre.
“Due to the strategic location and a quality Goodman product we are confident that we will experience strong customer interest.”
If planning permission is granted, work is expected on-site in the spring.
