Bredbury 25 Trade Park to address shortage of trade units across south Manchester

Completion of Bredbury 25 Trade Park this summer will help to address a lack of available trade units throughout south Manchester for growing businesses.

With practical completion due in June 2018, the 2.9-acre (1.18 hectare) development fronting Ashton Road, Bredbury, Stockport will offer nine new individual trade units ranging in size from 3,000 sq ft to 6,000 sq ft. and if required can be combined to larger units.

The scheme is being delivered by Seddon Developments, a division of Bolton-based, family-owned, multi-disciplinary construction group Seddon, with Bredbury 25 being marketed to potential tenants by real estate advisors Colliers International, GVA and Williams Sillitoe.

The site’s advisors report ‘extensive interest’ in the scheme with a number of units under offer.

Units are available for rent with each featuring its own roof mounted photovoltaic system designed to provide savings on energy costs to occupiers

Bredbury 25 is strategically located close to junctions 25 and 26 of the M60, providing tenants with a direct road link to Manchester Airport and the wider motorway network.

Laura Wilbourn, surveyor, industrial and logistics at Colliers International, said: “Bredbury 25 will help to address a widespread shortage of new modern industrial units throughout south Manchester, hence the high level of interest we have already secured from potential tenants and our growing confidence in attracting further occupants prior to completion in June.”

John Sullivan, director, industrial and logistics at the Manchester office of Colliers International, said: “The general consensus is that there’s a shortage of small-to-medium-sized trade counter units to meet rising demand from trade counter operators. Other developments in Stockport coming out of the ground such as Aurora and Southfields are almost fully let with rents in North West rising to £10 per sq ft, a pretty punchy level for the region but one that people are prepared to pay when there’s little or nothing available.

“As well as Bredbury 25, we’re also aware of plans for similar developments to accommodate the needs of trade counter operators at other strategic sites throughout the North West.”

Jamie Seddon, director at Seddon Developments, commented: “We have been delighted with the high level of positive interest in the scheme which is testimony to the strong location adjacent to the motorway network and high visibility to passing traffic.”
