Revamped Derriaghy business park given boost as new firms move in
A million-pound revamp of a business park outside Belfast has been completed, with several new firms moving into the development.
The redevelopment of Derriaghy Industrial Park has been completed in just over 18 months.
It was bought over in 2015, after being in administration, with the new owners investing £1m on a refurbishment of the property, resulting in over 140,000 sq ft of office and warehouse space.
And while previously suffering from high vacancy levels, it has since attracted several new businesses.
New tenants include construction giant H&J Martin, which last year was bought over by Lagan Construction Group.
Portakabin has also set up its Northern Ireland headquarters at the park, which will deal with sales and distribution.
The site is being jointly handled by Murphy Chartered Surveyors and Osborne King.
The park's next stage of refurbishment will be around its office element, with work having already begun on a 20,000 sq ft development.
Chris Sweeney from Osborne King said: "It is exciting to see a landlord willing to take a risk and invest heavily in this project whilst also having the vision and commitment to transform a tired and dilapidated industrial and office park into what is now a premier entity.
"Uptake of the newly refurbished units has been very positive. However, we still have a number of units available, ranging from 2,000 sq ft to 10,000 sq ft."
