The Liberty Property Trust and Stoford Developments major speculative warehouse project, Liberty Park, Widnes, has been launched to commercial property agents from across the North West of England, Commercial People has learned.
The high-spec Cheshire 108,091 sq ft unit has been hailed as a “milestone” in the area’s economic development plans, with more than 60 agents attending their Rugby World Cup themed event last week.
As part of the Rugby event, all agents received a rugby shirt of their preferred nation’s team, with prizes including an official World Cup rugby ball and two tickets to see Sale Sharks to the agent who guessed the correct number of rugby balls inside a Land Rover Discovery.
Andrew Blevins, UK Managing Director of Liberty Property Trust, said: “It’s always pleasing to launch a completed scheme, but this warehouse is particularly important because it will play a vital role in unlocking the important Halton and south Liverpool industrial and warehouse market.
“It’s the only new-build unit over 50,000 sq ft in the area and has superb access to the major road network, as well as being close to Jaguar Land Rover. There’s no doubt that this first phase of Liberty Park, Widnes, will help to kick-start further economic growth.”
Phase 1 of Liberty Park, Widnes was recently completed, making it the only fully serviced site of its size in south Liverpool.
Liberty Park, Widnes provides availability for the development of 350,000-400,000 sq ft of accommodation, which provides 102,170 sq ft of warehousing with 5,920 sq ft of Grade A office space.
Dan Gallagher, joint Managing Director of Stoford Developments, added: “The availability of speculative buildings is a key driver for attracting occupiers to this region and completing a high-quality development of this size will undoubtedly help to relieve the demand.”
Liberty Park, Widnes is just one of the industrial/warehouse developments by Liberty Property Trust and Stoford; other schemes include Liberty Park, Lichfield and Worcester Six.
Cllr Ron Hignett, Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board member for regeneration, said: “I am very pleased that this site has now been launched on to the market and, thanks to Liberty’s confidence in the site and Halton’s potential, it should lead to further investment in the borough and the wider city region.”
