Patrick Properties, represented jointly by Savills and B8 Real Estate, has brought to market Stakehill 185, a major new build manufacturing and distribution facility in Greater Manchester available for leasing.

With work on the Middleton building commencing at the end of September, the site will comprise 185,000 sq ft (17,186 sq m) of quality warehousing space, including 12,000 sq ft of office accommodation over three floors.

In addition, the property will be built to standards to achieve a BREEAM ‘very good’ rating and is due for completion in April 2022.

Prior to its acquisition in 2009, the site previously accommodated a 190,000 sq ft regional distribution centre for Sainsbury’s.

Stakehilll 185 is located on Stakehill Industrial Estate, one of the key warehousing and logistics parks in the North West

The site extends to more than 200 acres and comprises in excess of 2.5m sq ft of industrial and distribution space with occupiers including Tesco, Aldi, Booker, Toolstation and Yodel.

Jonathan Atherton, industrial and logistics director at Savills Manchester, said: “The development of Stakehill 185 is hugely welcome, particularly given the significant supply constraints in the North West market.

“The wider Stakehill Industrial Estate remains one of the region’s key industrial locations and we are expecting strong interest from local and national occupiers.”

Christian Thorpe, director at Patrick Properties, said: “We’re pleased to be commencing work on this new site, which is set to become a much needed, high quality logistics space in a key location.”
