Northern Trust (www.northerntrust.co.uk) is pleased to announce that following the recent expansion of their Scottish portfolio, they have opened a new Whittle Jones regional office at their Earls Court office development in Grangemouth, Scotland. Northern Trust’s portfolio is actively managed by their in-house surveying practice, Whittle Jones Group Ltd (www.whittlejones.com), who already has regional offices in Birmingham, Chorley, Wakefield and Newcastle.
During 2017 Northern Trust has acquired over 300,000 sq ft of industrial space in Scotland and continues to look for further opportunities to grow its Scottish portfolio. There are also two development sites which when built out could add a further 100,000 sq ft of industrial accommodation.
This portfolio now extends from Dumfries, northwards to Wishaw and Cumbernauld and eastwards to Grangemouth, Livingston and the west of Edinburgh. In total there are 6 industrial estates and 1 office park providing over 364,000 sq ft of space in 70 units.
Jonathan Houghton, Property Portfolio Manager at Northern Trust commented “We are delighted to announce the opening of our new Whittle Jones Regional office in Scotland, which has always been a key area for our on-going strategy to acquire and develop multi-let industrial assets that complement our portfolio.”
Northern Trust’s existing property portfolio comprises more than 200 individual industrial, trade and office parks, and over 3,600 individual units.
