Maersk first to sign up at £45m Altrincham industrial

The logistics firm has agreed a 41,500 sq ft pre-let at Network Space’s Broadheath scheme. 

Maersk’s deal sees the first chunk of the Atlantic Street scheme, previously home to trailer manufacturer Cartwright Group, snapped up. 

In total, the £45m Broadheath Networkcentre will provide 206,000 sq ft of industrial space across 25 units. 

Trafford Council is supporting the development with a £23m loan. 

Simon Eaton, senior development manager at Network Space, said: “This is a fantastic pre-let to a multi-national company and represents some 20% of the scheme’s total floor area. Securing Maersk as an anchor tenant in the most prominent unit on site is a fantastic start.” 

Network Space has appointed Bansco to deliver the redevelopment of the 11.5-acre site, with completion expected this summer. 

Chris Liptrott, managing director of Bansco, said: “As a Greater Manchester company, we are delighted to be working with Network Space to regenerate one of the oldest industrialised sites in the area. 

“The sustainability credentials of the development, and the quality of the space that is being delivered, is already starting to attract high profile occupiers. The development will create new job opportunities, during construction and after completion, helping to boost the local economy.”   

Savills and B8 Real Estate are the letting agents for Broadheath Networkcentre. 

The wider professional team includes Walker Sime, project management and quantity surveying and AEW architects.
