Chancerygate has welcomed the Metro Mayor of the Liverpool city region on a visit to the £35m Mersey Reach logistics park in Aintree.
Steve Rotherham visited the first phase of the development’s occupiers, including builders merchant Selco, blade maker Hardy and zero calorie tonic company Skinny Tonic. The mayor was also shown the construction progress of the scheme’s 116,000 sq ft second phase.
Chancerygate’s development director and head of the Warrington office Mike Walker was on hand to welcome the Metro Mayor to Mersey Reach. Northwood Investors director of asset management, Iain Taylor, also joined Steve on his visit.
The first phase of award-winning Mersey Reach comprises four units and was completed in August 2021, with development funding supported by The Chrysalis Fund. Chancerygate sold phase one of scheme to Northwood Investors at the end of 2020.
Phase two of the development is currently under construction and will deliver an additional 12 units ranging from 4,000 sq ft to 30,000 sq ft, with practical completion expected in January 2022. The second phase has also been sold to Northwood.
Chancerygate development director and head of the company’s Warrington office, Mike Walker, said: “It was fantastic to welcome Steve on his visit to Mersey Reach. The development demonstrates the transformation of a derelict site into a thriving scheme which will support the rising demand for high-quality industrial space in the Liverpool region and the wider North West.
“Mersey Reach a great example of Chancerygate being at the forefront of urban regeneration, improving environments and creating jobs in a diverse range of sectors. We’re pleased to have been able to give Steve the opportunity to meet occupiers and view the progress of phase two at the development.”
