KFC deal in the bag for Integra 61
Citrus Durham has completed a deal that will see Adil Group develop a stand-alone drive-thru KFC at the £400m mixed-use scheme on the A1(M).
Citrus, which is overseeing of the wider 205-acre site, was advised by retained roadside agents Colliers and Avison Young, with WSB acting for Adil Group.
Detailed planning consent has been granted by Durham County Council for the development of the KFC unit and work is expected to start in the summer, with the F&B unit open by year end, joining existing traders Greggs and Costa.
Integra 61 is the largest logistics- led mixed use scheme seen in the North East in a generation and is home to Amazon’s new 2m sq ft fulfilment centre, which is now fully operational with over 1,000 employees on site.
Construction of a further 640,000 sq ft of speculative logistics space in five units, known as Connect at Integra 61, is well advanced with completion due this summer. Serviced plots are available on the remainder of the site to accommodate a wide range of unit sizes to suit occupier’s specific requirements.
Integra 61 as a whole is consented to deliver 260 homes, a hotel, nursery, family pub/restaurant, vehicle dealerships and trade counter/retail units.
David Cullingford, project lead for Integra 61 and Citrus Durham, said: “Adding another high profile occupier to the roadside element of Integra 61 is fantastic news and further strengthens the diversity of uses at the site. We are having a very busy 12 months on site with lots of development works underway and we are looking forward to welcoming KFC to the scheme.”
John Roberts, head of automotive and roadside for Colliers added: “We are talking to a range of roadside occupiers regarding the remaining plots at Integra 61. The sector remains buoyant and we are able to accommodate a wide variety of roadside users from vehicle dealerships to self-storage and a range of retail and hospitality uses.”
Integra 61 is one of Place North East’s “Ones to Watch in 2023” list of developments.
