NORTHERN TRUST ANNOUNCES MAJOR REFURBISHMENT SCHEME AT WEST CHIRTON
24th October 2017
Following confirmation of Northern Trust’s successful planning application to build up to 400 homes on the southern part of their West Chirton (South) Industrial Estate, the company has announced that it also plans to complete a major refurbishment of its industrial premises situated on the northern part of the site, adjacent to Tesco’s.
The estate is a former munitions building built in 1940 and now totals circa 70,000 sq ft. 25,000 sq ft of accommodation is to be subdivided into 5 separate units. The circa £1m investment into the estate will see the subdivided units benefit from a new roof, external cladding, loading / personnel doors and utility services together with full redecoration.
Two other blocks of units ranging from 580 sq ft up to 1,695 sq ft and totalling 20,169 sq ft will also benefit from a similar 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 being undertaken at West Chirton (South) Industrial Estate will bring about much needed investment into the area. The residential scheme will provide a significant boost to the housing supply whilst the refurbishment of the industrial estate will benefit the local and regional workforce by creating a range of smaller units which will be ideal for small and medium sized businesses looking to relocate or expand.”
West Chirton (South) Industrial Estate is situated on Norham Road, immediately south of the A1058 Coast Road and less than 5 minutes’ drive time to the Tyne Tunnel.
