Chase heating up for “Portrack’s best industrial unit and office space”

Tees Business Digital Media Pack

The former Teesside home of Race for Furniture is attracting much interest from firms looking for a new headquarters or distribution facility after undergoing a major refurbishment from property specialists Mandale.

Having undergone a six-figure investment, the close proximity of Pennine House to the A19 and A66 makes it perfect for any firms looking to distribute throughout the region, providing easy access to roads leading to Newcastle, Darlington, Leeds and beyond.

Situated just off Portrack Lane on the North Tees Industrial Estate, the renovated two-storey unit faces Mandale’s own state-of-the-art HQ, which the company itself refurbished.

Next door to Mandale is Rinus Roofing, who lease their building from the property specialist after another stylish, full-scale renovation to premises previously occupied by Budget Windows.

Joe Darragh, Mandale’s head of property development, is not surprised by the interest in the unit.

He said: “Portrack is as good a base for a business base as you will find – and, to my mind, there is no question that this is the best industrial unit and office space on Portrack.

“When it comes to industrial warehousing premises, it’s absolutely perfect as a head office or distribution facility for a thriving engineering firm, builders’ or plumbing merchant, fabrication or plant hire centre.

“Portrack is renowned for retail, of course, but it’s also a real centre for builders’ merchants and heavy usage.

“Pennine House looks like a new, with a big unit at the front, a large yard in the centre and a storage facility and car parking at the back. All of the offices have been refurbished to an incredibly high standard.”

Completely re-clad and re-roofed, Pennine House comprises a ground floor of 1,200 sq ft, of office space or showrooms, together with kitchen and mess room for warehouse staff.

Upstairs is 1,400 sq ft featuring a main open plan office, meeting room and further toilets and kitchen. At the rear is a second unit of 4,500 sq ft and a yard measuring 5,600 sq ft.

The property is available to let or for sale. For more details or to arrange a viewing, contact Joe Darragh on 07973 908599 or email
