Mirastar lets 650,000 sq ft in Widnes
Supply Chain Coordination and Kammac will have signed pre-lets on units at the developer’s Gorsey Point scheme.
Mirastar, represented jointly by Savills and B8 Real Estate, has let 650,000 sq ft of space at the Widnes development, taking the scheme in 92% let.
Government-owned Supply Chain Coordination, which supplies the NHS and trades as NHS Supply Chain, has taken a 393,000 sq ft unit. Cushman & Wakefield advised the occupier on the deal.
Third party logistics provider Kammac has taken Widnes 258, a 257,500 sq ft speculative shed forming part of second phase of Gorsey Point.
The building is due for completion in November, along with the final 54,000 sq ft unit, which is not yet let.
Expanding Kammac has now taken more than 900,000 sq ft across the North West in recent months. The company has also signed deals for sheds in St Helens, Warrington, and Preston.
“The supply of warehousing within the region remains significantly constrained, and we have seen high levels of interest in the developments at Gorsey Point for some time,” said Jonathan Atherton, industrial and logistics director at Savills Manchester.
“Both units were let ahead of completion, signifying the ongoing strong appetite from a range of occupiers for big-box industrial space in the North West.”
Jon Thorne, director at B8 Real Estate, added: “We are delighted to have been able to attract a new occupier to the region in the form of the NHS Supply Chain in a deal that will establish a new distribution hub and create over 300 new jobs.
“With most of the speculative big sheds under construction being let pre-completion, these two lettings further demonstrate the need for additional stock in the market.”
