NG in the Driving Seat After Former Birmingham Bus Depot Deal
22nd September 2017
Commercial property specialist NG Chartered Surveyor has brokered a deal to let part of a former National Express bus depot in Birmingham.
Textile wholesaler Jonathan James Group has moved into the 28,341 sq ft Muhammad Iqbal Building, Unit A, Crossfield Road, Kitts Green in the city.
The letting was completed by Sunny Landa on behalf of landlord New Henna Traders, director at NG Chartered Surveyors. He said:
“NG has a long history with this building. We bought the building on behalf of New Henna Traders.”
“As part of that deal, the former owners, National Express, remained as tenants. When the company relocated, we moved quickly to secure new tenants in a space.
“We’re really pleased to have secured a tenant for our client. This deal will mean more investment into the premises – a move we always encourage from our clients.”
Director of New Henna, Abid Iqbal said:
“We’d like to thank Sunny and the NG team for reacting in such a rapid manner to secure the tenants at the Muhammad Iqbal Building. We named this building after our father, so it’s a deal that is close to our heart as the property is also where we run our business from.
“We have big plans for the premises and to be able to rely on sound knowledge of the marketplace means we have the confidence to invest in it going forward.”
The Muhammad Iqbal Building is situated adjacent to the junction of Crossfield Road and Kitts Green Road, one mile to the east of Station Road (A4040) in Kitts Green. Birmingham city centre is approximately six miles to the west; Junction 5 of the M6 Motorway 2 miles to the north-west and Junction 4 less than five miles to the east.
Established employers in the area include Alcoa and Carrtech and the surrounding area is a mix of commercial and residential property. Lee Hall Railway Station is less than half a mile to the south.
