Philip Eves, Director at Buccleuch Property, said: “We have seen an increase in occupier demand in this area, and believe West Telferton offers organisations a wealth of opportunities through its location and the high-quality units available to rent.

“Through our recent and historical purchases we are working to further enhance the area, with site improvements and signage development already underway.

“We continue to look for new investment and development opportunities to strengthen our expanding commercial property portfolio across the UK.”

Buccleuch Property was advised by Nick Armstrong of Ryden on the purchases.
