The new 68,374 square foot distribution facility is expected to be substantially complete this month
July 2022 – Harbert Management Corporation (Europe) LLC announced that it had secured a pre-lease at Guinness Point, a brand new 68,374 square foot industrial unit in Trafford Park. The new distribution facility will be substantially complete this month.
Sainsburys Supermarkets Ltd has signed a 15-year lease on the facility which will provide the retailer with a premium, high quality new build development in the heart of the North West’s leading industrial/logistics location.
After identifying a lack of supply in Trafford Park and the Greater Manchester area, Harbert Management Corporation pledged to speculatively develop the unit with strong professional demand received immediately.
Steve Capper, director of CBRE’s industrial and logistics team, comments;
“Given the lack of development within Trafford Park, coupled with the unit’s prime location and specification, it is no surprise that an excellent company such as Sainsburys was committed to the property. “
