SEGRO secures planning to develop a ‘green’ industrial estate

Approximately 255 jobs will be created
SEGRO has secured planning consent from Haringey Council and the Greater London Authority to speculatively develop a ‘green’ industrial estate.

Located in London’s Zone 3, SEGRO Park Tottenham will create a 190,000 sq ft space, developed with the latest environmental designs. The building is designed to net-zero energy standards for base build, with exemplary level energy efficiency. The building’s energy supplies will be sourced from renewables on-site and off-site, to achieve net-zero carbon in operation.

The estate will be split over eight units, ranging in size from 6,815 sq ft to 50,050 sq ft, providing industrial space on the doorstep of London from which businesses can meet their customer demands.

Each unit at SEGRO Park Tottenham will have green walls – helping purify the air, regulate the temperature and create a more enjoyable surrounding for those working in and around the site.

Along with the green walls which will grow a variety of species of plants, selected to remove pollutants from the air and reduce carbon dioxide, mature trees will be planted in the landscaped areas, attracting native wildlife and playing an important role in reducing carbon dioxide levels.

Bike sheds will also double up as ‘insect hotels’ with specifically designed wooden habitats to house bugs and insects. Electronic vehicle charging points will also be installed across the estate to encourage occupiers to use electronic vehicles around the capital and the low emission zone.

The roof areas will be fitted with photovoltaic panels which will capture solar energy and convert it into electricity, generating 10% more energy than the building uses.

Approximately 255 jobs will be created and working with the London Borough of Haringey and local agencies, SEGRO will also deliver a skills and training programme to help members of the local community secure employment opportunities provided by the development of SEGRO Park Tottenham.

The estate aims to deliver a well-connected and modern urban logistics hub. It will enable quick and easy access to the North Circular and M25.

SEGRO claims to be London’s largest industrial developer with over 13.5m sq ft of space which is home to 450 businesses employing around 25,000 people.
