Manchester-based investors have bought a 90-acre Lancashire site as the North West’s logistics property market begins to sizzle.
Praxis Holdings are understood to have acquired the Whitebirk 65 site from private investors.
The move could accelerate progress on the site which is close to Junction 6 of the M65 motorway, with southern access via the A679.
The site already has outline planning permission for around 1m sq ft.
Praxis is expected to take advantage of the shortage of supply in the North West logistics scene.
