CRT Property Investments Ltd and its asset manager Blue Marble Asset Management (Blue Marble) have appointed the Leeds offices of commercial property agents Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) and GVA to market a prime 23,000 sq ft industrial unit in Glasshoughton, West Yorkshire.


Unit 9A Alpine Court, Blue Ridge Park, Colorado Way, Glasshoughton is a modern steel portal frame building located in a popular mixed industrial, retail and leisure location, close to the Xscape leisure complex and near to Junction 32 of the M62 and the A1(M).


Birmingham-based real estate asset management company Blue Marble manages the 23,000 sq ft industrial unit on behalf of CRT Property Investments Ltd which acquired the unit with the assistance of Blue Marble in September 2016. 


Property Investment and Development Director for CRT Property Investments Ltd, Shaun O’Brien says: “The market is very short of this type of good quality accommodation.  Unit 9A is a prime industrial unit in a very attractive location so we are very confident of a quick let.”


Tim Matthews, Chief Executive of Blue Marble says: “With its proximity to Xscape, Unit 9 is a high profile building with good car parking which, if permission for A1 retail use were granted, in addition to the usual tenants for an industrial warehouse, could suit a business selling direct to the public or trade buyers, becoming a destination in its own right.”


At present Unit 9 has permission for B1, B2 and B8 uses.  Quoting rent is £5.50 psf.  Further information is available from Simon Rhodes at LSH on tel. 0113 245 9393 and Jake Pygall at GVA on tel. 0113 292 5500.


Based in Birmingham’s Colmore Business District, Blue Marble Asset Management is a real estate asset management specialist which presently has more than £60 million of property assets under management.  It works for a select range of clients including investment businesses, high net worth individuals, trusts and family offices.  Its business is based on taking a holistic and strategic view of each of its property investments.
