Avison Young secures final occupier at Thames Trading Estate

22nd November, 2017

Rental Levels Increase from £4.50 per sq ft to £5.95 per sq ft

Manchester Avison Young has let the final vacant unit at Thames Trading Estate in Irlam on behalf of London and Scottish Investments.

Jack Weatherilt of WHR’s industrial agency team comments: “We are pleased that the Estate is now fully occupied having secured a local occupier for the remaining 1,500 sq ft terraced unit.  When London and Scottish Investments originally acquired the 18 unit Estate as part of a large portfolio, 13 of the units were vacant.  Following a comprehensive refurbishment in 2015, we were not only able to attract new occupiers but also able to push the headline rental to £5.95 per sq. ft.”

James Peeling of WHR acted as Building Surveyor throughout the refurbishment project. His advice allowed the creation of a modern, secure and welcoming estate, providing functional facilities over the previously dilapidated buildings, spalling concrete yard and the flooding drainage system.
