Law firm Gordons has advised Iceland Foods on its new 505,000 sq ft distribution facility in Warrington.

Iceland has recently completed a 20-year lease on the facility at Omega West logistics park in Warrington and intends to use the space as a regional distribution centre.

Omega West is a 184-acre extension of Omega Business Park, currently the largest mixed-use development site in the North West covering around 2.5m sq ft of logistics space. Current occupiers at the scheme includes Asda, Royal Mail and Amazon.

Founded in 1970 and with its head office in Deeside, Flintshire, Iceland has been a Gordons client since 2015. The British food retailer has nearly 1,000 stores throughout the UK.

Commercial property partner Sarah Ratcliffe advised Iceland on securing the lease for its new distribution centre and worked closely on the deal with Iceland’s property and acquisitions director, Simon Anderson.
