The Royal Mail Group, including Parcelforce, has taken B9 and B2 at SEGRO’s Heywood Distribution Park.
The two units totalling 142,760 sq ft have been taken at a rent of £5 per sq ft. The companies will occupy the units to help reinforce their service during the impending Christmas rush. JD Sports has taken 30,700 sq ft in addition to the 81,300 sq ft unit they already occupy at the Park.
Importantly, the deals were turned around in only 48 hours and underline SEGRO’s flexibility and ability to respond to the distribution industry’s contractual needs within short timescales.
Stuart Murray of Savills said: “HDP provides flexible accommodation options for occupiers and this, coupled with SEGRO’s ability to respond quickly to tenants’ requirements, has meant a high level of interest in space on the Park. Within days of receiving interest from Royal Mail and JD Sports they were in occupation at the Park, a strategy which is undoubtedly proving to be successful.”
The joint agents on Heywood Distribution Park are King Sturge and Savills.
