Why Rent in The North East?

Mileway in the North East

The North East is home to some of the UK's fastest-growing urban areas, including the major areas of Tyneside, Wearside and Teesside - and the cities and towns within them.

With a large population and rising e-commerce demand, the North East has become an essential destination for logistics and an area where many businesses simply need to have industrial space.

As the dominant landlord in the region, Mileway’s commercial properties for rent cater to businesses of all shapes and sizes with a diverse portfolio of over 4 million square feet of industrial and warehouse space across more than 700 units. All with fantastic connectivity and proximity to key transport networks, our occupiers are never far away from their customers.

The North East has great connections, transport and major hubs

An excellent network of major roads and railways connects the North East, including the East Coast Main Line which connects London to Edinburgh and runs through key cities such as Doncaster, York, Darlington, Durham and Newcastle.

Mirroring the East Coast Main Line is the A1(M) – the North East’s main arterial carriageway. Running from north to south, it connects Scotland to Yorkshire and beyond, eventually meeting the M1. A second north-south dual carriageway link is provided by the A19, which serves Sunderland, Teesside and Peterlee before meeting the A1 at Seaton Burn.

Meanwhile two of the region’s largest international airports, Newcastle Airport and Teesside International Airport in Darlington, allow businesses across the region to access vital goods and serve customers worldwide.

These transport routes and the connectivity they offer make strategically positioned industrial units in the North East vital – supporting faster delivery times, smoother processes and happier customers.

Why here, and why Mileway?

If you're looking for a prime market outside London with more affordable rents, the North East is a fantastic place to be.

The region’s growing e-commerce penetration means that consumer expectations about speed and convenience are set high and Mileway’s last mile network in and around key cities empowers businesses to meet those expectations.

In addition to expanding our diverse portfolio, we make it a priority to ensure our warehouse spaces are up-to-date and in line with modern standards. We’re actively refurbishing our properties in order to meet demand, reduce our impact on the environment and bolster workforces through innovative design.
