The largest warehouse and offices building currently available in the Black Country – measuring nearly 284,000 sq ft – has gone on the market.
Bulleys, the leading regional property agency, is handling inquiries for the Wednesbury 280 industrial unit on behalf of London and Cambridge Properties (LCP).
The huge unit is the former home of Seconique, the UK’s largest independent importers and wholesalers of flat pack furniture, which recently relocated to new premises in Pendeford.
Wednesbury 280 is based at an established industrial location on Woden Road West in Wednesbury, just off the A41 Black Country New Road, around 3.5 miles south east of Wolverhampton and 2.4 miles from junction 9 of the M6.
LCP is planning to invest more than a million pounds in a major refurbishment of the property to meet a new occupier’s needs.
James Bird, senior associate at Bulleys, said: “We’re delighted to be marketing Wednesbury 280, the biggest industrial property currently available across the Black Country.
“Properties as large and flexible as this don’t come onto the market very often, and so we’re looking forward to competitive interest from the right businesses.
“The fact that LCP are willing to invest in a refurbishment makes this property even more valuable.”
Wednesbury 280, which currently has 29 loading doors, can be accessed from all four sides. It has an eaves height of up to 6m and a dock leveller with a weighbridge that could be converted into a further dock leveller if required.
The front of the premises is a multi-storey office block with secure parking outside, with additional spaces underground, and there is a large secure yard at the rear.
Nick Burgess, managing director at LCP, said: “We are excited about refurbishing this property and would be happy to work with any potential occupier to optimise the building design and fit-out to meet reasonable requirements.
“There is currently a shortage of industrial space, and so this building presents a great opportunity for the right business.”
Bulleys is marketing Wednesbury 280 jointly with property agency JLL.
