Helix Business Park in vogue with latest deal

Gaerwen Properties has secured another letting for its second phase of Helix Business Park at Newbridge Road, Ellesmere Port, which completed in October. Helix Business Park forms part of the Cheshire Science Corridor which is supported by the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership.

Big Style Fashions has taken unit 8 extending to 15,750 sq ft for a new fulfilment centre for its rapidly expanding online fashion business. The announcement follows hot on the heels of the letting of unit 7 (12,000 sq ft) to BePlas. The final unit of 12,000 sq ft is also understood to be under offer.

Helix comprises 92,000 sq ft of new build manufacturing units situated close to J10 of the M53. The first phase of 52,000 sq ft was let at practical completion to Cook Compression and Thyson Technologies.

Stephen Wade, director at Legat Owen, sole agent for the scheme commented: “Helix meets the needs of the market providing high quality, small to mid-range units in the Ellesmere Port area. The scheme benefits from being situated in the Cheshire Science Corridor which offers qualifying occupiers generous rates incentives. We are pleased to have let over 80,000 sq ft so quickly after practical completion. The success to date is testimony to the commitment to spec build and the support provided by the Cheshire and Warrington LEP.”

Director of Big Style Fashion, Darrell Freeman, continued: “Being based at Helix will allow us to continue to grow our business in line with our strategic business plan. The quality of the development and the proximity of the scheme to the surrounding motorway network mean that we are now well placed for 2020 and beyond.”
