Wigan trade unit let within four days at record rent
A unit on a popular Wigan business park has changed hands in less than a week, achieving a record rent and reinforcing the demand for commercial property within the region.
With an extremely tight turnaround, in just four days the previous tenant vacated and GSF relocated to the premises.
B8 Real Estate acted as letting agents. GSF has agreed a 10-year lease at a rent of £10 per sq ft, a 25 per cent uplift on the previous level and a new record rent for the area.
Situated on Manchester Road, within a mile of the town centre, Wigan Trade Park consists of five trade counter units totalling 17,500 sq ft of space.
Other occupants include Paintwell, Screwfix and UK Storage Company.
