A portfolio of 17 ground leases across 12 self-contained, secure and ring fenced industrial sites. The estates were all located adjacent to Media City UK, the home to the BBC and ITV, in Salford. This portfolio sale represented an unusual asset comprising a range of different properties and covenant strengths, and as such needed presenting in the correct manner.
The portfolio was sold to Ventnor for £2,760,000 in December 2013.
