Farnham industrial unit sold in seven-figure deal

A major industrial unit in Farnham has new owners after a seven-figure deal was agreed.

Leading property firm Rainier Developments has purchased 68,000 sq ft of warehouse and office space on Hurlands Close, based on Farnham Trading Estate, from Southco Manufacturing Limited.

Rainier has acquired the property with a view to refurbishing the property to a high specification before renting or selling the unit as a whole – or in smaller units – to satisfy the ongoing demand from a variety of sectors for commercial property space.

The property features two separate units with car parking – including a combined 57,600 sq ft of warehouse and two-storey office space at 3 Hurlands Close, as well as the adjoining Ashley House which features 10,600 sq ft of space taking in a 7,000 sq ft warehouse and two-storey offices.

Kieran Bray, Development Director at Rainier Developments, said: “Demand for commercial property space remains strong across a variety of sectors, despite the wider challenging economic backdrop, which is underlined by the strong interest we are already seeing in these units.

“As a firm we pride ourselves on investing in developments that help to enrich the communities that they serve, and we are looking forward to welcoming new businesses into these units in the near future which is likely to provide additional investment and job creation for the Fareham community.”

Law firm Shakespeare Martineau represented Rainier Developments on the purchase, and the property is being jointly marketed by DTRE and Curchod & Co.
