Just one to go

Kier Property says there is just one built unit remaining at Trade City Exeter, with its prime scheme for business, trade and warehouse occupiers. One 597sq m has just been bought by LCD Publising – making it their third unit on the scheme, leaving only 429sq m available.

Trade City Exeter, situated adjacent to J30 of the M5, has proved popular with freehold purchases – JFC Security Systems recently bought a 426sqm unit for just over £300,000. John Fricker, of JFS Security Systems, comments: “Trade City Exeter has all the requirements we were  looking for including excellent access, easy parking and good links to the motorway. Our new unit will enable us to expand the business as we  continue to focus on becoming the leading security centre in the South-west.”

Specialist civil engineering distributor Burden’s also recently bought 986sq m on a 2.25 acre site for more than £1.7M. Alan Hampton, of Burden’s parent company WTB Holdings, comments: “We are delighted with our new accommodation which is ideally located close to premises from which we have successfully traded for over 30 years. The new building was built by the Trade City team to our own specification brief and was completed ahead of schedule which means it will greatly assist us, not only in facilitating an orderly re-location, but also in consolidating our position as the dominant distributor within the infrastructure industry in the south west construction market.”

Individual occupier enquiries are also being negotiated on the final phase of Trade City Exeter. Land is available for more bespoke freehold or leasehold deals for units from 279 sq m upwards at the top of the site, as well as a prominent site for a headquarters unit of up to 2,325sq m fronting Sidmouth Road.
