Wilkinson Furniture has taken Scottish Widows Investment Partnership Property Trust and Centurion Properties’ 84,000 sq ft BLOC 84 unit at Lawnhurst Trading Estate in South Manchester.
The refurbished property has been let on a new five year lease at stepped rent that increases to £3 per sq ft in the third year.
Steve Johnson of retained letting agents, B8 Real Estate, said: “Acting on our advice the Landlords took a proactive view by undertaking good quality refurbishments to all the vacant units which has undoubtedly helped us secure a large number of tenants in such a short space of time. In addition we were able to offer flexibility towards Wilkinson Furniture’s occupational requirements which allowed us to exchange contracts within 14 days of instructing lawyers.”
Joint letting agents at Lawnhurst are Jones Lang LaSalle and B8 Real Estate.
