There is no doubt that part of the great appeal of Hemel Hempstead is how well connected it is, not only to London, but to the rest of the country and internationally. The M1 and M25 are right on the doorstep. Getting to the Midlands and North of England is equally as simple as going South. This connectivity is appealing in terms of accessing customers, employees and suppliers.

Taking advantage of this excellent access to the UK’s motorway network, Prologis Park Hemel Hempstead is located less than a mile from J8 M1, with direct access to the M25 / London to the south and the Midlands, via the M6, and Leeds to the north. With the close proximity of the M1 and the M25 being only 4 miles away, over 70% of Great Britain’s population (45m people) can be reached within a four-and-a-half hour drive time, offering exceptional accessibility to customers, providing cost efficiencies.

The plans for the site include a seven unit scheme totalling 585,000 square feet together with c.£2m investment in the local highways infrastructure. The delivery of Maylands Gateway as an employment site is a key component of Dacorum Borough Council’s Hemel 2020 Vision and will initiate development within the new Enviro-tech Enterprise Zone.

Over the past 20 years, Prologis have invested around £100 million in four distribution buildings on the Maylands Business Park. Now with the development of Prologis Park Hemel Hempstead they are investing a further £80 million creating a high quality working environment that could attract over 750 new jobs to the town.

“Hemel Hempstead is an ideal location for many of our customers and there is already a great deal of interest in the site from potential occupiers.

We have been investing in Hemel Hempstead for almost 20 years and will continue to be an active member of the local community.”
