Savills, on behalf of Paloma Capital, has let Orton 130 on Bakewell Road in Orton Southgate, Peterborough to Yours Clothing Ltd.
The rapidly expanding online retailer has agreed to a new 10-year lease for the recently refurbished warehouse unit totalling 128,567 sq ft (11,994 sq m).
William Rose, director in the business space team at Savills Peterborough, comments: “Orton 130 provides high quality warehouse accommodation in a well-established commercial location. Situated at J17 of the A1 (M), the building provides excellent access to the national motorway network via the A14 and the M11, ideal for Yours Clothing to service a wide geographic spread of customers across the UK. The demand for sizeable units in the region remains incredibly high, which coupled with the lack of Grade A supply, means we were able to secure a strong deal on behalf of our client.”
Steve Hawkins, partner and head of UK agency at Eddisons, who advised Yours Clothing, adds: “We have provided Yours Clothing with commercial property advice over the last few years and indeed acquired the firm’s original premises off Bakewell Road four years ago. The expansion of the business has been a phenomenal success and the company is one of the fastest growing ladies fashion retailers in the UK. The addition of Orton 130 to the distribution part of the business will help to accelerate this expansion further and is great news for Peterborough and the local economy.”
