J&E Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has been appointed by Whiteford Property
to market a commercial/industrial building at Hillington Park which offers
tenants the prospect of reducing the cost of their business premises at a
time when many companies are seeking to cut their overheads as the UK
economy enters into recession.
The property, at 15 Lorne Road, Hillington Park, benefits from being
detached with its own enclosed private car park to the front and secured

per sq ft, Shepherd's is marketing the premises at a rent of £20,000 pa,
equating to a rate of £5.33 per sq ft, for which an occupier will get
3,750 sq ft of space, together with private parking, storage, their own
front door and no service charge.
