Huyton Trade Park achieves 100% let

Huyton Trade Park is now fully let thanks to three new lettings and two lease renewals, totalling 32,000 sq. ft.

Walton Flooring Centre has taken a 10,000 sq. ft unit on the site in a three-year lease, which sees the local independent open its third location in Merseyside.

A further 10,000 sq. ft unit has also been let to specialist wholesaler North West Teas on a five-year lease. North West Teas moves from a smaller unit on the park as part of its plans for growth.

Pay Later Carpets Ltd and Home Foods Asia Ltd also join the park, taking 2,700 sq. ft on a three year lease and 7,500 sq. ft on a six year lease, respectively. Existing tenant Vintage Leather Satchel Company has renewed its lease for 5,000 sq. ft.

Andrew Day, Senior Asset Manager at The Derwent Group which owns Huyton Trade Park and Mill Lane Trade Park said: “Huyton Trade Park has become a real hub for local independents and we’re delighted to see such a strong line-up of great Merseyside businesses choosing to call it home and expand their operations there.

“Across our local portfolio, we now have just 5,000 sq ft of industrial park space remaining at Mill Lane Trade Park, Old Swan, Liverpool, which reflects the strong demand we’ve seen in recent months.”

James Harper, Managing Director of Walton Flooring Centre said: “Huyton Trade Park is in a strong location and offers easy access to the motorway network, so it was the perfect choice for our third site. We’re also benefiting from a large forecourt which gives us a safe and secure space for our delivery vehicles to load and unload and this is invaluable to our operations.”

Huyton Trade Park is located on the outskirts of Liverpool close to the M57 and contains 37 industrial units which range in size from 500 sq ft to 18000 sq ft. Mill Lane Trading Park is in Old Swan and was purpose-built in 2017 as part of the wider Liverpool Shopping Park regeneration. Hitchcock Wright and Avison Young are retained agents on both schemes.

The Derwent Group is part of the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation and operates in the retail, leisure, industrial and commercial sectors. The Derwent Group owns and manages 2.8million sq ft of commercial property including 1.7million sq ft of retail and leisure space.
