Project Description

Retail warehouse let to B&Q plc for 25 years. In 1997 the first 100,000 ft B&Q warehouse was developed on a former landfill site at Mucklow hill. The site comprised 12 acres of heavily contaminated land which was fully remediated with the building set on 23 metre piles. The scheme was recognised at the time as one of the most pioneering developments for reclaiming contaminated land and the investment was sold in 2005 at 4.4% net initial yield.
