Northern Trust (www.northerntrust.co.uk) is pleased to announce that work on a major refurbishment of its industrial premises situated on the northern part of their site at West Chirton Industrial Estate, North Shields has been completed.
The estate, which comprises nearly 83,000sq ft of lettable floorspace, includes some former munitions buildings built in 1940. Block 3 contains 25,000 sq ft of accommodation which has now been modernised and subdivided into 5 separate units. The circa £1m investment into the estate has seen the subdivided units benefit from a new roof, external cladding, loading / personnel doors and utility services together with full decoration. The investment into the site comes on the back of Northern Trust’s successful planning application to build up to 400 homes on the southern part of the site.
Two other blocks of units ranging from 580 sq ft up to 1,695 sq ft and totalling 20,169 sq ft have also benefited from a facelift to vastly improve the industrial offering in the area.
Steve Brown, Regional Property Director at Whittle Jones North East, agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust commented, “The regeneration works completed at West Chirton (South) Industrial Estate have brought some much needed investment into the area and will expand the choice of premises available for small and medium sized businesses.”
