Glenbrook Completes Refurbishment of Birkenhead Industrial Scheme

Property development and investment company Glenbrook has undertaken an extensive speculative refurbishment of an industrial building at No. 1 Dock Road in Wallasey, Birkenhead.

Specification included the removal of the previous occupier’s plant and fittings, installation of a new roof and cladding to the elevations, new roller shutter loading doors and full refurbishment throughout. Glenbrook acquired the property in Summer 2019.

Occupying a 1.09-acre site, the detached warehouse comprises 22,505 sq ft of office and industrial accommodation. The property is located in the Seacombe area of Wallasey fronting Dock Road (A5139) which connects Birkenhead town centre to Junction 1 of the M53 motorway. The Wirral Waters Development and the East Float Dock runs parallel to Dock Road.

Speaking about the property, Mark Diaper, associate director at Legat Owen, joint agents for the scheme with LM6, said:

There is huge demand for quality industrial accommodation in this area.  The property represents a rare opportunity for a business to own their own freehold unit, which is situated in a highly prominent location and is available on a freehold basis for £895,000 or at an annual rental of £95,650 per annum.
