Commercial Properties New To The Market

As spring moves into summer,development activity at the Carlisle Kingmoor Park Enterprise Zone has increased significantly.

Construction of the new 40,000 sq ft Mercedes Benz dealership fronting is well underway. As anyone driving along the A689(w) Bypass will have seen the steel work is up and the roofs and wall cladding is going on.

Nearby, at Plots N & R Kingmoor Park Central contractors are now busy stripping back the sites prior to construction commencing in earnest on this scheme of 19 new build units. Kingmoor Park Properties’ sole agent, Richard Percival of Carigiet Cowen reports good levels of interest from a range of occupiers in this space. Negotiations are at advanced stage with a single occupier looking to take up to 5 units within Block N, totally almost 22,000 sqft, in a single pre-let deal.

The delivery of these 19 units providing an additional 55,000 sqft of space in October is timely, as recent lettings of 38,800 sqft at Kingmoor Park North and 47,000 sqft at Kingmoor Park Central as well as over 60,000 sqft at Kingmoor Park South and 7,500 sqft at Kingmoor Park Central going Under Offer has resulted in a dramatic reduction in the amount of space available across the Estate.

Also, at the northern end of the city, Carigiet Cowen have recently been instructed to market two properties with frontage to Kingstown Road. Greymoor Farm House & Barn offers an opportunity to purchase a substantial property with potential to convert wholly to residential, create a live/work unit or an entirely commercial venture. The guide price is £425,000.

Prominently located at the main entrance to the Kingstown Estate, the former Unipart building at Site 50 Kingstown Broadway, proves almost 6,000 sqft of showroom/trade counter space, together with an extensive mezzanine floor area. The long leasehold interest in the 0.72 acre site is available at a price of £375,000.

Elsewhere within the Kingstown estate, Carigiet Cowen are marketing Unit 13 Grearshill Road, a fully refurbished trade counter/warehouse property of 11,800 sqft on a To Let basis.

They are also marketing Office 100 Brunthill Road, the former Eddie Stobart HQ and shop extending to 9,500 sqft and 3 Merchants Drive at Parkhouse, which provides 4,500 sqft of refurbished office space over 2 floors.

Richard says, “We have seen good levels of take up over the last 6-12 months across a range of property types, so I am pleased that we are securing new stock to bring to the market to replace the properties we have sold or let. Ultimately having our board on every property in Carlisle for months on end is not the aim, our goal is to conclude transactions on and off the market to our clients satisfaction in a professional and timely manner."
