Two agree three year leases in Warrington

Michael Hunt

Northern Trust has secured two new lettings at its 33,430 sq ft Birch Court industrial estate in Warrington.

GB Trading has taken 1,665 sq ft unit 9 and Cheshire Gas Design has leased 2,795 sq ft unit 17. Both represented themselves and agreed on three year lease agreements. The cost of the rental agreements were not disclosed.

Simon Walmsley, management surveyor at Whittle Jones, agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust, said: "The quality of the accommodation and nature of deals available at Birch Court is proving tempting to local business and this can be seen by the recent activity and a noted increase in enquiries for the site."

Northern Trust's £2.5m development, on the Grosvenor Grange business park, has 18 industrial units offering space from 1,100 sq ft to 2,795 sq ft. The latest two lettings means the estate is now 40% occupied and Northern Trust has said strong interest has been shown in the remaining units.

Simon Roddam of BE Group, joint agents on the scheme, added: "The lack of new small workshop premises in Warrington seems to be working in our favour. Birch Court is now seeing lengthier lease term commitments despite the open offering of leases from 12 months. This shows confidence from local businesses in the quality if the premises, location and the competitive rents on offer."

Eileen Bilton Partnership are also joint agents on the scheme.
