The Botony Trading Estate comprised an industrial estate of 18 units, totalling 188,000 sq ft. The Estate was originally constructed in the early 1960s. A number of units were refurbished and or re-clad and re-configured.
The estate was sold when fully let.
At the time of purchase the Estate had been poorly managed and was subject to a number of vacant units. Average rents were approaching £4 per sqft and as a consequence of investment into the individual units rents were increased by over 30%.
The Estate was well located being the principle spine road to the Sainsbury Superstore.
Extensive discussions were held with Sainsbury to relocate them onto the Estate and to construct a new Superstore whilst creating a new covered shopping precinct on the site of the former store, linking to the High Street.
