DP World’s London Gateway has appointed Jones Lang LaSalle as sole property agents to provide specialist advice to support the delivery of the project.
The London Gateway will be the largest logistics park development in Europe connected to a new 3.5m TEU deep-sea container port, located just east of England's capital on the north bank of the Thames.
Andrew Gould, Jones Lang LaSalle UK chief executive, said: "This appointment comes after a huge amount of work over recent years with the London Gateway team planning this extraordinary project and we are really pleased to have an international team working in partnership with DP World advising on delivery. It is a world class project and will be a game-changer for the UK economy"
The project has planning consent for a 9.25million square feet rail connected logistics park adjacent to the new deep-water port, which is on schedule to open in Q4 2013.
Simon Moore, CEO London Gateway said: “Jones Lang LaSalle is the outstanding team chosen to assist DP World in developing Europe’s largest port-centric logistics park. I welcome their international expertise in property development, leasing and financing, which will complement our own team”.
