AIPUT's proposed new dnata facility at Heathrow
Aberdeen Standard Investments’ Aiput fund has started construction of Phase II of dnata City East, a 117,000 sq ft extension of its Heathrow cargo facility.
Full planning permission for the warehouse was granted in August 2020. The building will be operated by dnata, which also operates the nearby 250,000 sq ft dnata City East Phase I warehouse.
The facility, located to the south of the airport, is due for completion by early October 2021
Edward Amery, head of UK industrial and logistics for Aberdeen Standard Investments, said: “Aiput’s new, landmark warehouse at dnata City East will reinforce our long-term vision to drive the continued growth of our portfolio of prime air cargo assets at Heathrow.
“The completed dnata City East site will set a new benchmark for airport industrial property investment, with Aiput’s partnership with dnata creating a new, off-airport centre of excellence for UK airfreight.”
