The Derwent Group’s business park is now 100% occupied, with Walton Flooring Centre heading three new arrivals with a 10,000 sq ft letting.
Walton’s facility will be its third in the region. Also new to the park are Home Foods Asia and Pay Later Carpets, which have taken 7,500 sq ft and 2,700 sq ft respectively, the foods supplier signing for six years and the carpet business for three.
In addition, North West Teas has expanded into a 10,000 sq ft unit on a three-year lease, while Vintage Leather Satchel Company has renewed its lease on a 5,000 sq ft unit.
Andrew Day, senior asset manager at the Derwent Group, said trading estates in the area are proving popular. “Huyton Trade Park has become a real hub for local independents and we’re delighted to see such a strong line-up of great Merseyside businesses choosing to call it home,” he said.
“Across our local portfolio, we now have just 5,000 sq ft of industrial park space remaining at Mill Lane Trade Park, Old Swan, which reflects the strong demand we’ve seen in recent months.”
Huyton Trade Park is located close to the M57 and contains 37 industrial units that range in size from 500 sq ft to 1,8000 sq ft.
The Mill Lane Trading Park is in Old Swan and was purpose-built in 2017 as part of the wider Liverpool Shopping Park regeneration. Hitchcock Wright & Partners and Avison Young are the retained agents for both schemes.
