Marketing / 1 Mar, 17

With deals completed across a number of sectors in February, we have continued our good start to the year. Here is a summary of our recent deals and instructions from across our office network.

Our Manchester agency team have finalised a number of deals across a variety of sectors in the region. Acting on behalf of corporate finance advisors, Duff and Phelps we sold a freehold residential investment in Liverpool in excess of the asking price. The team were also instrumental in the sale of a residential development site in Tintwistle and a 13,000 sq ft office space in Preston.

In the North East our Teesside agency team closed a deal on a 5,210 sq ft unit at Durham Lane Industrial Park within just one week of the property going on the market. Our North East retail agency team have recently been appointed as letting agents on 37 units at Hebburn Shopping Centre, a site which is currently undergoing a £2.4million refurbishment.

We were delighted to hear in February that the luxury hydrotherapy pool at the Alan Shearer Centre won a Gold SPATA award for ‘special requirement pool of the year’. Our building consultancy and architecture teams designed and developed the luxury facility, working alongside specialist pool designers and occupational therapists.

Research conducted by head of our Birmingham office, Peter Fowles has forecast that over the next four years an increase in new high quality office accommodation could see a raft of new occupiers moving into the city centre. Click here to view the full report.
