As Spring Arrives, Continued Growth and New Beginnings Progress In Towngate’s Property Portfolio…

by Julia Ford

As Spring is defined as the season of new beginnings, what better time to launch our fantastic new property development near Manchester. Situated in Walkden M38 0PT, the impressive construction of six new industrial units to let comprises warehouse buildings, with integrated office space, ranging from 5,450 to 45,695 sq ft. 

We welcomed around 40 property professionals located in the North West on Thursday 14th March, starting at 8.30am with a hearty breakfast on offer, as well as the opportunity to be some of the first in the industry to view the development site first hand. We were able to discuss progress and showcase the quality of workmanship that is making the scope of the project so unique in the market. Each left with a few goodies including fleeces and champagne. 

In particular those who attended were impressed with size of the units and yards, alongside the green credentials of the buildings and the general care and thought that has gone into creating, what will be a fantastic workspace for the new occupiers of theses buildings. Currently two of the six units are under offer and exchanged and we have strong interest in all the remaining four warehouses.

While completion is on track, Tom Lamb, property director at Towngate is impressed by the entire project team and their efforts, commenting: 

“With Towngate’s £6 million+ investment, we have crossed a significant milestone in the revitalisation of the site near Manchester, once home to the iconic Lucozade factory.  The project not only restores the area to full capacity but also contributes to the creation of hundreds of jobs, leaving a lasting legacy.”

Strategically located just off Lester Road, with easy access to the M61 Motorway and key city centres, the site is set to become a hub of economic activity.  Visit our dedicated site to find out more and to see how Towngate are prioritising sustainability, giving full commitment to fostering environmentally conscious workspaces.

Development and growth has been our mantra here at Towngate for the last 60+ years and our Walkden project joins a catalogue of previous developments and refurbishments that we are immensely proud of.

2018 saw the commencement of our Towngate Link development at Cross Green in Leeds; 4 sleek, modern units were constructed and since the completion of the build during 2019/20 the estate has become home to a number of thriving tenants, such as Perfect Draft UK and London City Bond.

Our trade counter units at Copley Hill Trading Estate, Leeds have also recently undergone an external facelift, along with extensive internal refurbishments to Unit 3C at our Airedale Site in Hunslet, Leeds and our Unit 4 Treefields Industrial Estate on Gelderd Road, Leeds.
