Verastar set for 61,000 sq ft Sale headquarters

Charlie Schouten

The business services provider is in line to take the 61,000 sq ft One Dovecote in Sale, just off the M60, while Greggs is also set to open a drive-thru at the site.

The building, owned by Pin Property, has been fully refurbished after being purchased by Pin in 2015. It is one of two buildings on the site, the other being occupied by GE Capital.

Verastar is a services firm which specialises in telecommunications, water, and energy for small businesses, and is currently headquartered at Longley House in Sharston.

It also has a site in Northenden and is set to take the entirety of One Dovecote as its new headquarters. Facilities 320 dedicated car parking spaces. The office was understood to be under consideration by Kellogg’s for its move away from Old Trafford, but the company ultimately decided on a move to Salford Quays last year.

In a separate deal with Euro Garages, a drive-thru Greggs is set to be built at the site, the second in Greater Manchester after the bakery’s inaugural offering in Irlam.

This was originally set to be a Starbucks under a planning approval secured in early 2018, but will now be a Greggs under a refreshed planning application, submitted in February. This will be accessed via Old Hall Road, one of the key routes from the motorway to Sale Moor and Sale town centre; 26 car parking spaces are proposed.

Verastar is dealing directly with Pin Property on the move, while Cushman & Wakefield and Canning O’Neill are the retained agents for the scheme. All parties declined to comment.

Place, why say ‘verastar are dealing direct with Pin’? Seems like you are undermining the agents, who probably tipped you off in the first place!!!

I agree. Pointless comment

By A Gent

The mere fact that you mention both agents declined to comment and Pin were only contacted, assumed not spoken to, clearly shows you had no blessing for this article and that the information published is non factual! Ridiculous article.

The other building is not only occupied by GE Capital. Research facts, it’s useful in a reporting role
