Lack of good quality industrial stock in Thornbury, near Bristol, has prompted the landlord of units at Thornbury Industrial Estate to speculatively commission the extensive refurbishment of Units 22-27.

Units 22-27 Cooper Road, which extend to a total of 20,599 sq ft, underwent refurbishment during the middle part of this year, and are now ready for immediate occupation.

Tom Watkins, senior surveyor in the Industrial & Logistics team at Colliers International in Bristol, which is jointly marketing the premises with BNP Paribas Real Estate, said: “We received strong interest from a range of end users during the final phases of the refurbishment, and we recently went under offer on half of the space to a national occupier, with the other half; Units 25-27 still available.

“Industrial properties in Thornbury have been attracting increasing attention as potential occupiers are starting to look beyond the overheated markets of North Bristol and Yate. This has been underlined by the fact that Units 22-24 of this refurbished premises went under offer soon after being brought to the market.”

The remaining space of Units 25-27 offers 9,318 sq ft of modern industrial warehousing with two full-height roller shutter doors, and a minimum eaves height of approximately 6m.

Mr Watkins said: “We are expecting a wide range of interest in Units 25-27, given the strategic location, and the fact that the premises has excellent potential to create a high-specification trade counter unit. There are ample car parking spaces, and it has potential to create a large secure yard.”

He added that the Industrial & Logistics team in the Bristol office of Colliers International had recently let Unit 30 at Thornbury Industrial Estate to artisan spirits manufacturer Bramley and Gage, and that they were hoping the success of the estate would continue with Units 25-27.
