‘Rare opportunity’ for horticulture and food firms as large facility goes on the market

10th Sep

The 140,000 sq ft East Yorkshire property, part of the Dianthus business park, which sits directly off the A63 at Newport, is coming available as the current tenant’s lease expires at the end of the year.
However, having only being built in 2009, it presents a unique opportunity, says David Garness, managing director of commercial property agent Garness Jones, which is marketing the property. 
“Rarely do you find a property of this exceptional quality coming on to the market where, for the right kind of business, it could provide a ready-made fit to move into quickly,” he said.
“We have produced an extensive video tour of the property and site, including aerial footage, but people really need to visit to appreciate firstly the high quality of the development, and also the excellent work environment it offers.
“A major selling point is its location at the intersection of the M62 and A63, providing direct links to the Humber ports and motorway networks, which is again ideal for a business operating in the horticulture and food sectors and needing good transport links.
“If a client came to us and asked us to find a modern site like this, boasting all the facilities it has in terms of both business operation and staff welfare, it would often be a very difficult task. It is a rare opportunity.”
The site, which is heated by renewable energy, could be divided up to accommodate more than one business and would also be suitable for other industries.
It includes 22 dock-level access doors for delivery and distribution, a central processing facility and partitioned chilled areas for goods coming in and out.
The first floor includes extensive modern offices with a large boardroom and meeting room, and staff facilities including canteen, a gymnasium and locker rooms. There are also 114 parking spaces on site.
