Two units in the first phase of the Heron Business Park development in the Widnes Waterfront Economic Development Zone (EDZ),  have been sold by the park’s developers,  Widnes Regeneration Ltd, the joint venture between St Modwen Properties PLC and Halton Borough Council.

Maintenance Cleaning Services have bought a 5,253 sq ft unit and a local businessman has acquired a 5,339 sq ft  building to create a plumbing-based trade counter.

Nine units totalling some 39,500 sq ft remain in the first phase and are ready for occupation.

Michelle Taylor, regional director of St Modwen, said: “This is the first speculative development in the Economic Development Zone and we have strong interest in six of the remaining nine units.

“The early sales and strong interest reflect the strength of the market and the quality of the buildings which have brought for the first time a major high quality standard of development to Widnes.

It was formerly a Lafarge Group site which Widnes Regeneration has reclaimed prior to redevelopment.

Dixon Webb is acting for Widnes Regeneration.
