Spur Mill Broadstone Road Reddish

Impey & Company had acted for longstanding clients on Spur Mill, a predominantly single storey mill of c.70,000sq/ft which was part income producing. Approximately half of the premises was vacant and challenging to secure tenants due to its perceived physical and economic obsolescence, including unfashionably low ceiling heights and age of the premises. An off-market sale to a developer was agreed, with Impey & Company being retained as sole letting agents. The sole tenant who occupied approximately half of the premises vacated in April 2020, and a scheme was developed jointly by the client and Impey & Company to split the whole building into a number of smaller units to attract occupiers. Occupier interest was managed by Impey & Company, with the result that c.48,600sq/ft is under offer at the time of writing, with the owner taking an additional 6,000sq/ft for their own use successfully resulting in a commercially negligible remainder to be mothballed. The lettings are due to complete late-October 2020.
