The largest strategic industrial development site currently available in the Humber region has been put on the market by its new owners and has been named Portlink 180. PPH Commercial are joint agents for the site with JLL of Leeds.
The 78.5 acre Hobson Way greenfield site at Stallingborough will be able to accommodate about 2,000 employees. It is part of the Humber Enterprise Zone and provides easy access to the ports of Immingham and Grimsby and Humberside Airport.
It was purchased by Rula Developments Ltd earlier this year after the previous owners, Abengoa of Spain, did not progress their plans for a bio fuel plant.
Duncan Willey, Divisional Director PPH Commercial, said: “Taking into account the excellent location of the site and the fact that industrial occupancy in North and North East Lincolnshire is currently running at the unprecedented level of 95%, we are expecting a high level of interest in this site.
“The site has been allocated for storage/distribution and light/general industrial uses, so it will appeal to a wide range of businesses. Rula Developments bought the site as a strategic acquisition and will split the land for sale, as well as offering bespoke warehouse or industrial facilities for lease or sale.”
“Because the site has Enterprise Zone status, there are enhanced capital allowances for qualifying businesses and grants towards inward investment are also available,” he added.
