Developer db symmetry has submitted a planning application for a 120,000 sq ft unit in Knowsley.
The development at Huyton business park will see a 175,000 sq ft factory transformed into a unit on a 9.4 acre site.
Darren Hill at CBRE and Andrew Lynn from JLL have been appointed to market the unit, branded as Aquila 120, and work will commence on-site in April 2016, with completion scheduled for September 2016. The refurbished unit will be available to lease or purchase.
Huyton Business Park is located at the Tarbock Island interchange at J6 of the M62 motorway and J1 of the M57. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is just 7 miles to the South. Local occupiers include Parcel Force, Olympic Oils and Halewood International Holdings PLC.
Simon Dixon, Associate Development Director at db symmetry, said: "With the severe shortage of top specification second hand units of 100,000 sq ft plus, we are expecting a strong level of demand for what will be a unique proposition. With its strategic location adjacent to the major motorway networks, Aquila 120 is likely to appeal to owner occupiers, warehousing and distribution occupiers and, with the added USP of 4MW of power, we anticipate interest from manufacturers."
