John Blackburn Ltd

LaSalle investment management, advised by Dove Haigh Phillips and joints agents Gent Visick have disposed of a 58,654 sq ft former manufacturing unit.

The building in the Hunslet area of Leeds and bordering the M621 was marketed freehold with vacant possession and acquired by local property and development company Bridge Estates. They plan on demolishing part of the building, undertaking refurbishment works to create a large open storage area and already have an occupier in detailed discussions.

The site is the second disposal for LaSalle in recent months in the Leeds market, having in July disposed of communication giant BT’s regional headquarters at One Sovereign Street.
