The Opportunity

One Lakeside presents a unique opportunity to lease one of the largest available properties in North West England, situated in a prominent position close to the main entrance of Cheshire’s premier commercial location – Chester Business Park.

It’s possible for the building to be tailored bespoke to occupier requirements and is considered suitable for a range of uses and sectors to include office, educational, light industrial, storage and medical.

In addition to the main property there is a charming 4-bed cottage just to the side which is included within the lease. This unique extra has the potential to offer a multitude of uses presenting a great opportunity to the occupier.

The Property

The complex currently spans over 135,000 sq ft across the ground and first floor and is of concrete frame construction with external facing brickwork.

The ground floor has been subdivided using temporary studded walls that can be removed or rearranged to suit the new occupier. The vast majority of the first floor is to shell and core finish with exposed concrete slab floors and ceiling soffits. A sprinkler system is installed throughout the property and there is a secure loading area with two roller shutter doors accessing the building.

The Potential

There is the potential to expand the property by an additional 24,000 sq ft, offering 159,000 sq ft of prime business space in total.

An option for this is to add a stylish and modern glass extension to the side of the building which would then offer a second entrance. To complement this there is also space for a substantial car park expansion by making it multi-storey (which a precedent has already been set by a number of businesses on the Business Park), which would result in more than doubling the number of spaces to approximately 800. The significant external electricity supply would power a considerable number of electric charging points.

Any expansion plans would be subject to planning permission, pre-application advice has already been sought and there is thought to be no reason as to why any development plans would not be approved.
