Chingford Industrial Site Acquired By Blackrock

April 25, 2014

The BlackRock UK Property Fund has acquired the Circular Point site in Highams Park, Chingford, and will fund the speculative development of a 100,000 square feet trade counter and warehouse scheme.

The site has been acquired from Wrenbridge and Palmer Capital who will continue in their role as developer of the site. The development will provide ten units ranging from 2,700 square feet to 41,400 square feet and will be available for occupation by November 2014. Smith Young Real Estate, Glenny and CBRE have been appointed as joint letting agents.

Paul Tebbit, a Portfolio Manager for the BlackRock UK Property Fund, said: “Circular Point provides the fund with a rare opportunity to access grade A industrial investment stock in Greater London, and brings new space to the market at a time when the North East London supply is limited and demand is growing as the UK economic recovery gathers momentum. We are looking forward to working with Wrenbridge to deliver an excellent product at the right moment in the development cycle.”

Jeff Wilson, Director at Wrenbridge commented: “Having bought the site a couple of years ago and overseen the planning and tender process we are delighted to be on site delivering a top quality product which we hope will be an enormous success for BlackRock.”
