Howden Joinery has signed a 10-year lease term to become the newest tenant at Sanderson House in Wythenshawe, Manchester.

CBRE’s Manchester industrial agency team secured the letting whilst acting on behalf of Cargo Overseas.

Sanderson House is a 14,611 sq ft detached warehouse located on Roundthorn Industrial Estate in Wythenshawe.

The unit offers modern features, including open plan offices with air conditioning and comfort cooling, warehouse heating and high bay sodium lighting. Secure parking spaces for 29 vehicles and CCTV is also on site.

The premises is located on Floats Road in the centre of Roundthorn Industrial Estate in South Manchester.

The A5103 Princess Parkway and junction 3a of the M56 motorway are within 2 miles. These provide direct access to Manchester International Airport and the M60 orbital motorway.

Paul Cook, senior director for the industrial agency team at CBRE Manchester, said: “We are delighted to secure Howden Joinery for Cargo Overseas as tenants at Sanderson House.

“The property is situated in a good position close to the A56 motorway in South Manchester. We have recently been successful in securing a number of deals in the North-West area demonstrating the consistent, high demand for good quality industrial accommodation within the region.”

Montagu Evans acted on behalf of Howden Joinery throughout the proceedings.

Meanwhile, the future of Manchester’s oldest theatre remains unclear – four years after it was bought by a hotel developer.

The Theatre Royal was purchased in 2012 by the Edwardian Group, the firm behind the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester Hotel next door in the old Free Trade Hall.

Based in Peter Street, the Grade II listed theatre was built by Mancunian businessmen and philanthropist John Knowles and opened in 1845.

Bosses at the Edwardian Group said they are carrying out an ‘internal feasibility study’ at the site.
