Knitting and yarn distributor, Sirdar Group occupy 198,000ft2, which represents 55% of the space, and has recently expanded due to a growth in the brand.

Melburg will undertake a rolling refurbishment programme as well as several estate management initiatives and in so doing drive the rental tone.

The asset has a captive tenant base, lies within 1 mile of Junction 40 of the M1, within a location with a sub 3% vacancy rate and was acquired at a 25% discount to residual land value”
