Acting on behalf of separate clients the Peterborough office of Barker Storey Matthews has transacted two industrial units at Wainman Road Industrial Estate, Woodston, Peterborough with a combined floor space of 35,400 sq ft.

A unit of 23,600 sq ft has been sold to private investors at a price of £805,000. The unit, let to HM Inland Revenue, was let on a lease expiring in 2020 at an annual rent of £70,000 per annum. At the start of 2013 a further vacant unit of 11,800 sq ft has been let to Phoenix Marine Solutions at an initial rent of £35,000 per annum. The tenant has an option to purchase the unit at a later date.

"This industrial estate has continued to remain popular through the recession" commented Steve Hawkins, Director of the Peterborough office. He added "the estate is well located lying adjacent to the city's ring-road, is close to housing for staff and overall represents good value for money".
