Last year proved that despite some businesses back together after the disruption from Storm Desmond, take up around the town was good for all commercial property sectors and in to 2017 the signs of take up slowing down looks unlikely.

Since the Christmas break, Carigiet Cowen have been busy on a number of new lettings around Carlisle.

The former Stephen Rowe Opticians in St Cuthbert’s Lane underwent refurbishment and was sub divided. Part of the unit is now let to Salon Elysee who will continue to trade from the first floor but now also offer additional services from the ground floor at 16 St Cuthbert’s Lane. The final touches to the shop fit are underway and the new unit will be open shortly.

The final remaining unit in the scheme is 17/18 St Cuthbert’s Lane which provides fully refurbished accommodation with a double window frontage immediately opposite House of Fraser. Offers in the region of £20,000 per annum are invited for a new lease.

21 Victoria Place has been let to Sticky Bits who formerly occupied space on Fisher Street. The relocation to Victoria Place will offer the same facilities as Fisher Street and will be open from mid February.

Elsewhere on Victoria Place Carigiet Cowen are actively marketing the highly attractive Grade II* listed terrace 4-16 occupied by Burnett’s Solicitors. Full details of this exciting opportunity are available on our website or by contacting the office.

Carlyle’s Court continues to thrive on 100% occupancy following a new letting to Nacro. The company formerly on St Aidan’s Road have taken approximately 1,500 sq ft in the scheme.

Acting for Carlisle City Council, Carigiet Cowen have let Unit 4 James Street to local launderette Polyclean. Business owner Ivanka Stefanova is looking to expand the business and bring a commercial aspect in to the services that the company offers.

Sticking with local businesses Carigiet Cowen also let Unit 2 Denton Holme Trade Centre to Holmes Construction. The company which is set up and ran by twin brothers Dan and Josh offer building and joinery services around Carlisle and Cumbria.

Currently a number of retail properties around the town are Under Offer to exciting business proposals and are due to complete shortly.

Availability of trade counter and industrial properties at Port Road Business Park and Grearshill Road is becoming limited showing that take up remains strong.
