Savills to market Biffa’s Trafford Park warehouse

Biffa has appointed Savills to sub-lease a Trafford Park warehouse after ending operations at the site.

Comprising 208,000 sq ft of modern industrial and warehouse space, the unit is available on either an assignment or sub-lease. The current passing rent is £4.75/sq ft.

Stuart Murray, industrial director at Savills, said: "The space at Fraser Place offers a unique opportunity for occupiers to snap up the only modern building of this size and quality in the Manchester area currently available.

"Located in the heart of Trafford Park, the site is fully self contained and is currently under full refurbishment by Biffa."

Nick Barsby, property manager at Biffa, said: "After a review of our recycling capacity requirements in the North West we have decided to close operations at Biffa's Trafford Park MRF recycling plant, with services transferred to similar facilities at Aldridge, Edmonton and a new smaller facility at Irlam.

"Employees at Trafford will be re-deployed locally where possible and new jobs are being created at the other sites as a result of the decision."
