The Derwent Group has announced that Walkden Business Hub, a new commercial office and retail space for SMEs in the Salford area, is almost fully let following its launch only eight months ago. Only two units now remain of the original 10 new units which range in size from 369 sq ft (34 sq m) to 1,500 sq ft (139 sq m) and totalling 6,965 sq ft (647 sq m) of newly refurbished commercial space. The space has been let to several local businesses ranging from retail to professional services, including The Party Company, Walkden Tax Office, Core Alloys UK, Accessories for the Home, and Joyo Audio. Announcement of further new tenants to the Hub is expected in the coming weeks.
The new commercial space is accompanied by meeting room facilities, over 2,000 on-site car parking spaces, 24 hour security, high-speed Wi-Fi, and access to local amenities including the wide range of high quality retail and leisure offerings on-site.
Peter Gilliland, Senior Property Manager at The Derwent Group said: “The latest round of business openings, following the re-brand and redevelopment of Walkden Business Hub, represents a significant milestone in the growth and development of this important scheme. We have been very pleased with the high level of interest we’ve received from the local business community, representing a strong demand for a centrally located, secure space for businesses in Walkden.
“Through our investment in Walkden Business Hub, we have sought to create an enticing and diversified offering in Walkden Town Centre, bringing together a mix of high quality brands and occupiers to form one major retail and leisure destination for Walkden. We anticipate strong growth in the long-term and this latest investment is a sign of our confidence in the town’s future prospects.”
