DM Hall brings to market an exceptional opportunity to lease substantial recently refurbished warehouse property in Livingston, West Lothian, at an annual rental of £200k

Posted: 17th September 2021

DM Hall, one of Scotland’s leading independent firms of chartered surveyors, has brought what is, in an unusually tight market, an opportunity to rent a substantial, easily accessed warehouse site in Livingston, West Lothian.


Located on Muir Road within Houstoun Industrial Estate which lies approximately three kilometres north east of the town centre, this established and successful industrial location has excellent transport links due to close proximity to Uphall Train Station and the M8 motorway, providing connection to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the rest of Scotland.


The property is set back but occupies a prominent position on Muir Road which is accessed from the main A829 Livingston Road on Houstoun Road in an area dominated by commercial operators.


The entire site extends to approximately 4.2 acres in a well-proportioned rectangular configuration including an office building, industrial shed, service yard, soft landscaping. The 4,992 sq. ft pitch roofed office premises are positioned to the north east of the site and fronts onto the main road and are available for immediate occupation.


The large 33,363 sq. ft shed is of portal frame with three pitched roofs of equal proportion on the well configured rectangular shape. The unit has an exterior steel cladding with a main entrance facing the office building and service yard.


Graeme Pollock, DM Hall’s Director-East of Scotland Agency, said: “There is a shortage of warehouse and industrial properties available in West Lothian within this size range.


“Our clients have recently completed a refurbishment programme including a full roof replacement, significant internal down takings, and redecoration both internally and externally.


“The property benefits from a height rising to 8.47m, at the apex, and with 4 separate roller shutters, it is well suited for storage and distribution use.


“Our clients are keen to secure the right tenant for the space, and are willing to discuss leasing options with any interested parties with whom they feel they could have a good long term relationship.  Lease options will be discussed, with incentives based on contract, covenant and use.


“We anticipate a high-level of interest in the property, due to easy access to Junction 3 of the M8, coupled with the strong occupier market and relatively low levels of existing stock in the Central Belt.


“Anyone interested in the property can contact me, Graeme Pollock,, or any member of our East Agency team on 01506 497010.”
