A 1.1 million sq ft development with consent to deliver industrial and warehouse units in Liverpool has been officially unveiled by leading commercial property developers Stoford and Gallan Group.
Liverpool 57 at Stonebridge Cross will consist of B2 and B8 warehouse units, which are available on a Design and Build basis on freehold or leasehold terms. Once detailed planning permission has been granted, phase 1 of the build is expected to be delivered within 15 months.
Located in one of the city’s Mayoral Development Zones, Stonebridge Cross is the largest development site in city council ownership, adjacent to the strategic road network and with further land available for expansion. As part of the process, the site has been totally rebranded to cater for the evolving market in Liverpool and the surrounding area.
Over 45 industrial agents from across the North West attended the official launch of the development at the Cunard Buildings in Liverpool hosted by Stoford and Gallan Group.
Stoford’s managing director, Dan Gallagher, said: “Liverpool 57 is an exciting opportunity for Stoford to build exceptional industrial space in the North West. The site is in a prominent location, just under a mile from junctions 4 and 5 of M57.
“With construction of Liverpool2, a new deep water container terminal, set to complete later this year, Liverpool 57 will have easy access to shipping lines via the nearby port which could prove vital for many businesses looking to expand their distribution channels globally.”
Karen Wilson, director at Gallan Group, said: “We’re delighted to be working on another fantastic scheme with Stoford as well as the prospect of working alongside Liverpool City Council. Liverpool 57 provides much needed warehousing facilities in an area which in the coming years will continue to prove vital due it its strong transport and shipping links via both road and sea. The prime location will enable occupiers to tap into the extensive local employment pool, providing many new jobs for the area.”
Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, Cabinet member for regeneration, added: “Over the last few years there has been a huge amount of progress regenerating Croxteth, including the new Stonebridge Business Park West which has created hundreds of jobs, the new St John Bosco Arts College and new leisure facilities. This latest development has come about as a result of us working with the Environment Agency to reroute the River Alt to develop this site while at the same time creating a 20 new acre park for the local community. It is our commitment to making sure Croxteth is a great place to live with the chance to secure a job locally. The area is perfectly placed next to the major road network and we know it has the potential to create many more, much-needed employment opportunities for local people.”
