L&G proposes 200,000 sq ft Trafford industrial rebuild

Early proposals for the demolition of the ageing factory at City Park Business Village and the construction of five modern units have been tabled. 

L&G Property Partners has submitted a scoping request to Trafford Council for the redevelopment of a 10-acre site off Brindley Road. 

L&G wants to deliver 200,000 sq ft of modern industrial space across five units ranging from 16,000 sq ft to 70,000 sq f, according to drawings submitted by Hale Architecture. 

The new-build scheme represents a 35.5% increase in floorspace compared to the shed that would be demolished. 

The existing building is of “poor quality”, according to documents prepared by JLL. 

Due to its age, the building has low eaves and too many internal columns “which leads to inefficiencies for modern occupiers” the documents state. 

The redevelopment is striving for a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ accreditation and will seek to be net zero carbon in construction and operation, according to JLL.

Is this a joke? Prime land for mixed-use redevelopment so close to the city centre. Not more warehouses!

Site would be perfect for resi! Across the road from Trafford Bar

By Will

Yeah this shouldn’t be for industrial. It should be redeveloped area for skyscrapers, shopping, activities and offices. Prime location with metro link nearby too! Don’t let this go to waste please trafford/Manchester City council

By Saeed

The freeholders are missing a trick here. It’s economically sensible to reserve this land for high quality residential. +200m skyscrapers are a stones throw. The authorities need to guide the development towards something that benefits the city centre/quays corridor. Huge opportunity wasted for a generation.

We should be building tall here. Absolute joke that you’d have low-level sheds in an area with 4 Metrolink stops in a stones throw.

A 200 storey skyscraper would fit in here. With views of the western coasts and beaches.

The Western coasts and beaches?, yes that would be wonderful ..Manchester’s new western suburbs! it’s already happening though, just a matter of time.

What’s wrong with Pomona Island? It’s not like that’s been developed out yet.
Trafford Park needs B2/B8 development to retain its position in the market.
