Latest Investment in Sunderland

We’re pleased to announce our latest investment into Sunderland in the form of one of Europe’s fastest-growing businesses, multi-channel retailer of tools and building materials supplier Toolstation. The new store is located at our Toll Bar Retail Park in Sunderland.

We like to do our bit, so we divided, renovated, and let up this 14,314 sq ft warehouse that had stood derelict and empty for a decade, to deliver the new Toolstation outlet. The Sunderland, Ryhope store offers Click & Collect and real-time stock availability via the Toolstation app.

In other news, the latest phase of regeneration in Sunderland is set to be a bestseller.

Plans submitted to Sunderland City Council by Pallion Engineering could see the transformation of Pallion Shipyard into state-of-the-art film studios, including the world’s largest covered water studio.

On the opposite side of the river, our Quay West Business Village anticipates front-row seats! Also a product of a former shipyard, the Quay West site was formally one of the North East’s most prominent shipyards, ran by Austin & Pickersgill, before we regenerated the site into the first out-of-town business park in Sunderland in more than 25 years.

We look forward to following the developments created from the growing levels of investment and regeneration in Sunderland, especially for our tenants on the riverside. Read the full story here.
