Airport office park sold for £25m

Trident Office Park

Trident Office Park at Manchester Airport has been sold for £25m by owner Property Alliance Group.

The facility has been bought by investment manager Longmead Capital. The deal reflects a net yield of 7.25%.

Trident, situated adjacent to Manchester International Airport extends to about 106,000sq ft over four buildings.

The property has recently undergone a multi-million-pound refurbishment and re-modelling programme to provide grade A office space with unrivalled amenities including a gym, café, bike hub, shower facilities and extensive on-site car parking.

Trident is 90% let to corporate occupiers including Avecto, Renold, MPM Products and Convergys.

Alex Russell, managing director of Alliance, said: “The sale of Trident office park is testament to the strength of both our offices and asset management teams.

“We responded swiftly to market demand, providing high-quality refurbished office space as well as unrivalled on-site amenities. This has resulted in a first-class business location, which has quickly achieved record rents, attracted high-calibre tenants and helped occupiers to recruit and retain talent.

“We are immensely proud of the success of Trident and wish Longmead Capital future success with its new asset.

“Following the sale, we are actively looking for new sites to bolster our offices portfolio, both in the North West and Yorkshire, and look forward to announcing new projects shortly.”

CBRE acted for Property Alliance Group and Colliers International acted for Longmead Capital.

Colliers International and CBRE have been retained to let the remaining vacant space.
