Carigiet Cowen experiencing high levels of activity.....

After a strong start to the first half of 2013, which has seen a number of significant sales and lettings being concluded across the county, as reported in last month’s feature, Carigiet Cowen have taken on a wide variety of new instructions.
In Barrow in Furness, Richard Percival has been instructed by CN Group Property to market the former Evening Mail Print Centre at Furness Business Park. This modern production/ warehouse facility extends to over 20,000 sqft of built space on a site area of 2.44 acres. It is a rare opportunity to purchase a high quality building with expansion land in this well establishing business park location. This is further demonstrated by the fact that since bringing the property to the market a fortnight or so ago Richard has undertaken half a dozen viewings and received 3 firm offers.
Further north, The New Squares retail development in Penrith is now fully open with the first tenants Hallmark Cards and Thorntons taking up occupation in June. Margaret Bushnell has been retained as sole joint agent with Colliers on the scheme. Please contact Margaret for full details of the Units available or visit
In Carlisle city centre Margaret is dealing with two business opportunities. Well renowned Hair Salon - Thatch is available for continued or alternative use and the “Skinny Gorilla” cafe bar on St Cuthberts Lane is also new to the market.
On the commercial/ industrial front Richard Percival is in the process of bringing more than dozen new properties and sites to the market in various locations across the county including a large 70,000 sqft factory at Lillyhall, Workington, a modern showroom and workshop in Cockermouth, a large hanger building at Kirkbride, 5 separate industrial properties in Carlisle and a variety of development sites on behalf of the Homes and Communities Agency in Longtown, Workington, Whitehaven and Millom.
According to Richard, “ June and July have been an extremely busy couple of months, the number and range of new instructions we have been dealing with reflects this. We have an extensive selection of properties and sites across all sectors be it industrial, office, retail or development. Whilst our website is constantly being updated sometimes the best way for an occupier to find the right property for their needs is simply to pick up the phone and talk it through with either myself or one of my colleagues at the office”.
