WORK on 13 new industrial units in Astmoor is set to start towards the end of the year.

Property and asset management company, FI Real Estate Management (FIREM), has received outline planning for its new development which will be named Astmoor Point.

The 2.5 acre piece of land off Hardwick Road will have 13 new industrial units totalling 27,395 sq ft. 

Astmoor Point’s new units will cater to a range of businesses, with a combination to be made available for wholesale let as well as smaller individual spaces for micro businesses.

Located next to the Mersey Gateway, the purpose-built industrial hub is already the base for a variety of local, national and international businesses.

A spokesperson for FI Real Estate Management said: “Having worked closely with Halton Council for a number of years, we understand how integral investments like these are to the local economy and to the community’s employment prospects.

“Forming part of the wider Masterplan for the area, these quality units will undoubtedly attract new business to Runcorn, as we’re already seeing a continued demand for modern units on the estate and more broadly across the region.

"Crucially, these new spaces will lend themselves to businesses of varying sizes - from small start-ups to trade counter outfits requiring excellent roadside prominence.

“Our commitment and enthusiasm for Astmoor has never dwindled throughout the duration of our presence here, and we are delighted that we can now unlock even more potential from this fantastic site.”

Astmoor Industrial Estate sits within FIREM’s extensive UK 10m sq ft portfolio of commercial property; comprising 5m sq ft of industrial space, and a further 2.6 million sq ft of new build property in the pipeline. Available spaces start from 500 sq ft to more imposing units of 80,000 sq ft.

Astmoor - and neighbouring Manor Park Industrial Estate - have units available to let from 3,285 sq ft – 25,000 sq ft. For more information on industrial and storage spaces available, contact the Business Development Team at FI Real Estate Management on 01257 263 010 or via
