Key Derby city centre site up for sale

One of Derby’s best known development sites has been put up for sale.

Commercial property specialists, Rigby & Co, are promoting the Duckworth Square site, within the Becketwell Development Zone, on behalf of Metropolitan Housing Trust.

The site, which was originally developed in the 1960’s as a shopping centre for Tesco, has now been cleared and occupies a pivotal role within the wider Becketwell Development area, a regeneration priority zone for Derby City Council.

Russell Rigby, Director of Rigby & Co, said:

“At 1.3 acres, this is one of the largest sites in single ownership within the city centre to become available for quite some time.

“There is a great deal of planning flexibility attached to the site, spanning a range of commercial and residential uses.

“A national marketing campaign has been launched to raise the profile of the site and we are working closely with the city council and Marketing Derby to give ourselves the best chance of attracting as much interest as possible.”
