The park was founded on a landscape led masterplan and core design principles which responded to the site’s attributes and natural characteristics.
Covering over 550 acres it is situated in a location, bounded by the M1, M6 and M69 motorways; widely known as the “Golden Triangle” this part of the UK is the first choice for logistics due to its strategic position in the centre of the country.
Magna Park Lutterworth is widely acclaimed within the industry for setting new standards in terms of design; environmental management; sustainability; occupier efficiency and local job creation. The Magna Park concept is GLP’s blueprint for the development of successful large-scale logistics parks around the world, including our second UK based Magna Park logistics park at Milton Keynes.
At Magna Park, GLP is dedicated to driving the sustainability agenda. Every effort is taken to make buildings cheaper to operate and maintain. Whilst preserving natural resources and reducing energy and water usage and maximising the use of recycled and recyclable materials wherever possible.
GLP’s strategy is based on increasing environmentally and socially responsible logistics development. We include environmental initiatives within our standard specifications at no extra cost to our customers.
