Link Logistics Park

2 March 2022

Cain International has bought the site, billed as the UK’s largest speculative industrial scheme, as part of a £550m portfolio acquisition. 

Firethorn Trust’s 3.25m sq ft logistics portfolio comprises 22 assets across sites in Ellesmere Port, Northampton, Leighton Buzzard, Peterborough, Leeds, Barnsley and South East London. 

At Ellesmere Port, Firethorn recently appointed Winvic to build the 760,000 sq ft Link Logistics Park. Firethorn Trust won approval for the Aew Architects-designed project last year having acquired the 42-acre Port Cheshire from Peel Ports. 

Under the terms of Cain’s acquisition, Firethorn Trust will develop the Ellesmere Port scheme and four others, as well as acting as leasing and asset manager across the portfolio.
