Former Nike headquarters hits the market

Former Nike headquarters hits the market

Helmsley Group has recently put its Doxford Park office building on the market. 

Formerly Nike’s UK headquarters the 22,658 sq ft building located at the 125-acre Doxford International Business Park on the outskirts of Sunderland, is available to buy or rent in its entirety. 

Offering Grade A open plan and meeting room space, the distinctive building benefits from easy access to the A19 / A690 interchange.   

Current occupiers at Doxford Park include leading names such as Barclays, EE, Arriva, and Northern Gas Networks. 

Alexia Swift-Cookson, head of asset management at Helmsley Group, said: “Doxford Park is a first-class office building and given its proximity to other leading brands across a range of sectors, as well as its prominence as a leading out of town office development, we anticipate strong levels of demand. 

“We’re seeing increased demand for out of town office space compared with last year, with employees having returned to the workplace following the ending of Covid-19 restrictions. 

“Sunderland is currently benefitting from large scale inward investment and regeneration, with almost £1 billion invested in the area since 2015. Given this, we would encourage owner occupiers looking to expand or establish a ready-to-go headquarters to take advantage of this exciting investment opportunity.”  

The property is being jointly marketed by CBRE and Savills.

Gateway Two hits the market

Gateway Two hits the market

Helmsley Group has put its Gateway Two office development in York on the market.

The 14,472 sq ft building, located in the popular Holgate Business Park, is available to buy or rent in its entirety.

Gateway Two offers modern, high-quality office space across three floors. It benefits from excellent transport links to York city centre as well as the wider region, being conveniently located on the A59 for travel to Harrogate and Leeds. It is within walking distance of the city centre and railway station.

Current occupiers at Holgate Business Park include leading names Benenden Health, Bupa Dental Care, COWI UK Ltd, Parsons Accountants and Gear 4 Music.

Alexia Swift-Cookson, head of asset management at Helmsley Group, said: “With a scarcity of high-quality office space in York, and employees having returned to the workplace following the ending of Covid-19 restrictions, Gateway Two offers an exciting investment opportunity or for an owner occupier looking to expand and benefit from their own ‘front door’.”

Gateway Two being presented to the market follows Helmsley launching neighbouring office development Gateway One last year.

Following an extensive refurbishment, Gateway One offers 12,204 sq ft of flexible office space across two floors.

Matthew Tootell, director at Bowcliffe, which is marketing Gateway Two on behalf of Helmsley Group, added: “Given the rate of expansion many businesses are experiencing across a range of sectors, we expect high levels of interest in Gateway Two, both from investors and owner occupiers looking to take the advantage of the rare opportunity of purchasing your own building in York with the level of prominence which Gateway Two offers. In addition, the office provides great flexibility in being able to split the building wing by wing or floor by floor which is also a key advantage of the building.”
