HBD completes Rotherham retail scheme with sale of final plot

HBD has completed the 16-acre Northfields Retail Park in Rotherham, with IRP Holdings acquiring the final 2-acre plot of land.

Northfields has seen the delivery of more than 100,000 sq ft of space, and is now home to major retailers including Tile Giant and Quay Plastics.

Andrew Milne, Senior Development Surveyor at HBD, said: “The sale of the last remaining two acres at Northfields is the final piece of the puzzle for HBD.

“While the retail sector continues to face its fair share of challenges, out-of-town shopping destinations continue to increase in popularity, largely thanks its convenience and free parking.

The units at Northfield are of the highest quality and situated within a well-established out of town retail destination – we’ve no doubt it will prove a successful location for many years to come.”

Headquartered in Sheffield, HBD has offices in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, London and Bristol. It is working with a development pipeline of more than £1.6bn and boasts a diverse UK-wide portfolio, comprising big-brand retail, office spaces and logistics through to residential innovation and award-winning heritage projects.
