Plans to build a new logistics facility at Prologis Park Midpoint have been given the go ahead.
Prologis UK has been given the green light to construct a “best in class” 163,000 sq ft warehouse at the Minworth site to deliver ‘much needed logisitics space to the West Midlands market.’
The proposals include the demolition of an obsolete unit which was originally built for supermarket giant Asda in 2016, and replaced with a new facility. The development of the DC6 warehouse will expand the Sutton Coldfield park to over 1.6 million sq ft.
Work looks set to start on construction in the summer with completion expected early next year.

James Hemstock, director in the capital deployment and leasing team at Prologis UK , said: “The redevelopment plans for DC6 Prologis Park Midpoint will bring a much-needed new lease of life to an under-utilised site and additional space to a starved market. We are looking forward to work getting underway early summer.
“We’re expecting to complete the building early 2023 and have already had a significant amount of interest from potential customers. We want this location to continue to develop and realise its full potential, for the benefit of businesses and households across the West Midlands.”
Prologis UK says Prologis Park Midpoint is one of its most successful parks to date. Other occupiers on the site include Jaguar Land Rover, DHL and Keuhne + Nagel.
