The letting is earmarked for completion in the first half of next year, comes as the vast infrastructure project on the wider 120-acre site is starting to take shape.

Located on the former Cronton Colliery site, Tritax Symmetry has secured outline planning consent from Knowsley Borough Council for a further 838,100ft2.

The UMC-designed facility is being built by GMI Construction Group (GMI) to Net Zero Carbon in Construction and is on target to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.

Yodel has taken the unit to further improve its distribution network across the Northwest region.

In terms of the wider activity at Symmetry Park, Merseyside, a reserved matters application has been submitted for approximately 350,000ft2 across two units which are expected to be delivered next year.

CBRE represented Yodel. Gerald Eve and Cushman & Wakefield are joint letting agents for the scheme.
