Northern Trust Company Limited is pleased to announce that planning consent has been granted for the first phase of its 5 acre business/industrial development on the Newbridge Industrial Estate.
Consent has been granted for the development of 22 workshop/office/business units comprising a total of 33,700 sq ft in units ranging in size from 500 to 2,700 sq ft. Work is expected to start on the scheme in early 2012.
Mike Grindrod, Development Director at Northern Trust commented “The new development at Newbridge underlines Northern Trust’s on-going strategy to acquire/develop assets that will form the basis of a long-term portfolio in Scotland, which will complement our existing portfolio in the North of England and Midlands. We are particularly interested in locations within central Scotland, close to major conurbations and the motorway networks. Our aim is to provide a high quality office and industrial product for small and medium sized companies on flexible terms.”
