Evander makes return trip to Chorley with BA

Manchester, 20th July 2011 - Following hot on the heels of their 420,000 sq ft prelet to Waitrose at Matrix Park in Chorley, Evander Properties, in conjunction with British Airways Pension Fund, has bought a further 25 acres of fully serviced employment land in the town.
The site, at The Revolution on Buckshaw Village, has been fully remediated by BAE Systems and will accommodate build to suit warehouse and industrial units from 60,000 sq ft up to 375,000 sq ft. Evander intend to submit a planning application to Chorley Borough Council as soon as possible.
Jeremy Greenland, Managing Director of Evander Properties, commented, "We are delighted to have secured another strategically located site in the North West, especially given the current lack of supply of good quality 'oven ready' sites in the region".
Daniel Burn of Jones Lang LaSalle, who acquired the site on behalf of Evander added, "Over the last few years, Chorley has become a hub for distribution centres serving the M6 corridor and the North West region. With its close proximity to three motorways, excellent local infrastructure and critical mass, we are very optimistic that our clients will be able to repeat their recent success at Matrix Park".
Lea Hough & Co acted for the vendors, BAE Systems.
