The logistics provider will speculatively develop around 1.3 million sqm across four units at Magna Park Lutterworth. 

All four warehouses are due for practical completion by Summer 2024. 

Full scope 

Three warehouses will be built at Magna Park South, including: 

  • MPS Unit 9 (approximately 36,000 sqm). 
  • MPS Unit 10 (approximately 11,000 sqm). 
  • MPS Unit 11 (approximately 12,600 sqm). 

The other unit, MPN 5, will be built at Magna Park North and will measure 70,600 sqm. 

Along with this, GLP is currently developing a 81 hectare country park for recreational use customers and the wider community.


To align with BREEAM Outstanding building standards, all warehouses will be net-zero in construction and certified by the Planet Mark. 

The park now contains 47 buildings and covers around 12 million sqm of land. 

Clients like Blackmann, Iron Mountain, and Unipart have found their place in Lutterworth during past speculative development phases. 

Once finalised and occupied, the four units will generate hundreds of employment opportunities and contribute towards the economic growth and commercial upskilling of the Midlands region,” said John Garwood, senior development director at GLP.
