A BUYER is being sought for a massive distribution centre at Rosyth's Queensferry One development.

The ScarMuir group say Q1-500 is Scotland's largest distribution hub and offers 500,000 square feet of distribution, logistics and office space.

The site is part of the 120-acre Queensferry One site which is being developed in partnership between Scarborough Group International and leading Scottish developer and contractor Muir Group.

Back in September 2017, the Scarborough Muir Group outlined their masterplan for the West Fife site and said it could bring 8,000 jobs to the area.

Their proposals include new offices, warehouses, a service station, food outlets and a 120-bed budget hotel.

Paul Kelly, of Scarborough Group International, said there had been a "huge increase" in demand for distribution and logistics space.

"The demand is being fuelled by online and traditional retailers changing and refining their business models in response to the COVID pandemic and by the rapidly-changing nature of consumers' buying behaviour," he explained.

"Queensferry One reflects Scarborough’s continued proactive approach to development and is part of a live portfolio of projects with a £2 billion GDV."

William McAlister, of Muir Group, added: "We are expecting keen interest from the market. Q1-500 will provide the highest specification warehousing and logistics accommodation at a time when there is a huge increase in demand for large-scale space in this sector.

"The site is located alongside the M90 and Queensferry Crossing offering easy access to the main Scottish cities, Northern England and the Port of Rosyth."
