Final phase at Eagle Business Park, Yaxley is landing smoothly

The Final phase at Eagle Business Park in Yaxley is landing smoothly, confirms sole agent Eddisons.

Barnack Estates UK Ltd has now completed the construction of an 18 acre site at the second phase of Eagle Business Park. Since the launch of this phase at the end of 2017, Eagle has been a remarkably successful industrial scheme, due to the quality of the units and environment created.

Rob Facer, Chairman, Barnack Estates UK Ltd, commented, “We are delighted to help meet the employment and industrial growth in the area. We have developed nearly 250,000 sq ft of space constructed in 116 units in this phase which has led to hundreds of new jobs”

Eagle Business Park, which fronts on to Broadway, Yaxley was established in 2010 and the first phases were soon successfully developed by Barnack Estates UK Ltd to occupy its original 25.7 acre site. This second phase sees a further 18.38 acres of commercial development, a total of 44.08 acres by Barnack Estates UK Ltd.

Given its location – with good road access to Peterborough’s Parkway road system and the A1(M) Norman Cross junction, Eagle Business Park has always seen a good mix of trade counter, light industrial, showroom and food sector tenant occupiers and freehold owners.

16 companies that have moved to site since September include JFO Communications Ltd, RJR Contracts, Halo Renewables, Provance Media, Market Ready (Peterborough) Ltd, Vale Select Motors Ltd, Trailer Vision Ltd, Nene Valley Flooring Ltd, Cambridge Medical Ltd, Warehouse Collective Ltd, Suprima Service Ltd, Aligned Concept Engineering Ltd, Vault Tech Holdings Ltd, Pro-Bake Ltd T/A Combilift Ltd, Verde Group Ltd and CTE Services Ltd.

Richard Jones, Director at Eddisons, commented, “The remarkable take up on Eagle Business Park has been due to the quality of the units and environment created. Eagle Business Park has set standards for industrial development with treelined estate roads and a pleasant working environment being key, as well as a lack of modern industrial units being available in Peterborough and further afield. Relocations from Sudbury, Cambridge, St Ives, St Neots, London as well as Peterborough, has led to a good mix of occupiers from specialist bottling companies to 3D printers, electrical contractors, lash and brow training and other beauty treatments, as well as traditional printers and internet distributors, amongst others.’’

A few freehold and leasehold units remain available in unit sizes from 900 to 2,895 sq ft.

Eddisons complete sale of historic Jubilee Mill

Eddisons has sold the 32,000 sq ft Jubilee Mill office building near Little Germany in Bradford to independent freight forwarding firm Uniexpress.

Uniexpress, which is headquartered in the city and operates from nine locations across the UK, has relocated its head office from Bradford Business Park to the Jubilee Mill to accommodate the growth of the business, renaming the four-storey property Navigation Point. It now employs more than 70 people in Bradford.

Eddisons associate director Matt Jennings added: “We’re really pleased to have sold Jubilee Mill to Uniexpress. Not only is it great to be able to help a successful Bradford business achieve further growth, it is also really good news that this deal will ensure that jobs remain in the city centre.

“We received a great deal of interest from buyers who were keen to redevelop the site as residential accommodation but it is very positive for Bradford that this property will continue as a high quality, modern employment centre.”

Eddisons sold the open-plan Jubilee Mill office building on behalf of debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP), which was founded in Bradford in 1996.

Increasing demand for the charity’s services which provide free debt advice for people with financial problems, fuelled by the cost of living crisis and rising energy prices, has necessitated a move to new premises for CAP.

Eddisons East Midland team’s 47-mile walk beats fundraising target to raise over £14k for charity

Eddisons East Midland team’s 47-mile walk beats fundraising target to raise over £14k for charity

Eddisons’ eastern regional offices in Peterborough, Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds joined forces in September to complete the 47-mile Norfolk Coast Path from Hunstanton to Cromer. They completed the challenge in just 24hrs and have raised a staggering £14,000 for their nominated charity, Sue Ryder.

Inspired by their friend David Park, a director in Eddisons’ Peterborough building and project consultancy team who was sadly diagnosed with cancer in 2021, the team set a target of raising £10,000 for Sue Ryder, the charity that provides expert palliative care to people living with life-limiting conditions.

The intrepid team set off from Hunstanton on the morning of 8 September, trekking throughout the night along the coastal route and reaching Cromer the following morning.

“It was tough, but we did it,” said eastern region director Martin Hughes. “As a team, we were able to push through the night and keep our spirits up despite the aches and pains and a closed path which actually added to the 47 miles!

“We’re so proud and grateful for all the support we’ve received in helping us beat our £10,000 target and raise over £14,000 to provide help and much-needed expert end-of-life care for Sue Ryder.

Eddisons appointed to sell Saica Pack site in Ellesmere Port

Eddisons has been appointed, with joint agent Vail Williams, to sell the 200,000 sq ft former Saica Pack corrugated cardboard packaging site in Ellesmere Port. The factory stands on a 14 acre site on the M53 motorway close to the Vauxhall car plant.

The Saica Pack site, which was originally part of the Bowater Containers paper factory, is also adjacent to the 42 acre Link Logistics Park, currently under construction and due to launch state-of-the art warehouse space early next year.

Eddisons director Robert Diggle, who is leading on the sale of the site, said: “This is a prime site at the heart of the North West logistics network. It was originally built in the late 1950s and its location, between the M53 and the Manchester Ship Canal, and easily accessible from Liverpool, Manchester and the national road network, was as key then as it is now.

“Sites of this size and pedigree come on the market rarely and, with demand for quality warehouse and industrial space currently reaching critical levels across the North West, we expect a buyer for the former Saica site to be found very rapidly.”

This is due to the geography of the area being appealing to businesses for logistical reasons together with recruitment prospects.”
