Eddisons Steers Former Car Showrooms To Sales Success


The Bradford office of Chartered Surveyors Eddisons has completed the sale of two well known former Bradford car showrooms for an undisclosed sum, which was above the original asking price.

The modern purpose built showrooms and The Gatehouse, an adjacent Grade II listed office building on Manchester Road, have been sold to leading independent builders merchants, The Joseph Parr Group.

Eddisons acted on behalf of retained client Pendragon and achieved a sale within 12 months of instruction.

The firm reported strong interest from a range of potential buyers including budget gym operators, restaurant and banqueting companies and major retailers.

Steven Jones, Director at Eddisons said: ‘Since the early part of the year we have received multiple enquiries which resulted in at least five firm proposals.

‘It is a positive indication of current market conditions and the demand for quality stock, of which there is limited availability in this area, that we were actually able to achieve a figure higher than the original asking price.

‘The unsuccesful bidders will be actively seeking similar sites in and around Bradford, which is good news for landlords with appropriate stock.’
