Multi-million pound deal completed at key retail site

Property consultant Commercial Property Partners (CPP) has facilitated a multi-million-pound deal in Barnsley, finalising the sale of more than 0.66 acres for a private client.

Spanning 2-18 Queen Street, 26 May Day Green and 1-11 Eldon Street, the island site is situated in Barnsley’s largest retail, administrative and commercial centre.

With its key frontage located on Queen Street, covenants include Holland & Barratt, Costa Coffee, Specsavers, Barclays and Halifax.

Located within the town’s primary pedestrianised retail area, the property features 10 retail units, as well as three upper floor suites offering potential for developers.

Barnsley town centre has recently benefitted from a £180m regeneration scheme, with “The Glass Works” sitting on 9.5 acres of land directly opposite to the retail site.

Robin Bullas, director at CPP, said: “We are delighted to have secured this agreement for our client during what has been an incredibly challenging time for the high street retail sector.

“We all hope to see Britain’s high streets return to business over the coming months and finalising this deal in Barnsley marks a step in that right direction.”
