A 13.5 acre Liverpool warehouse scheme designed to capitalise on growing port activity, is to be speculative development.
Chancerygate say they will build the first phase of the 210,000 sq ft Merseyreach scheme at Dunnings Bridge Road, Liverpool.
The site has easy access Liverpool2 Deepwater Port just 2 miles away to the south West, and access to the M58 and M57 motoeqwways.
There will be five units, including a single unit of 90,000 sq ft. The larger unit will be design and build, a 36,000 sq ft unit has beem pre-let to Selco Builders Warehouse, and the remaining three units will be speculatively built.
The disclosure comes as Chancerygate are granted planning consent to speculatively develop 12 new industrial units and refurbish an existing warehouse at Eaton Point, part of Matrix Park in Chorley.
Savills has been instructed as letting agent on both elements, acting jointly with Robert Pinkus & Co on the speculative units and with Gerald Eve on the refurbished property.
Construction of the 12 new units, totalling 46,690 sq ft is due to begin this summer. Completion is anticipated for early 2018, with the properties available freehold or leasehold.
Eaton Point is located one mile from Junction 28 of the M6 and three miles from Junction 8 of the M61. Other occupiers within the scheme include Waitrose, Bodycare, Synergy Health and NSG.
Mike Walker, development director for Chancerygate, said: “There is a lack of supply of good quality mid box units on the M6 corridor and similarly for new small freehold units. We have encouraging early interest from occupiers for these units.”
Savills advised on the Chorley scheme.
