Two Unit Retail Investment with Substantial Development Potential. Current income £11,000 p.a.


Wishaw is a town in North Lanarkshire, approximately 15 miles south east of Glasgow, with a population of 30,500 and a catchment area of 220,000. Neighbouring towns include Motherwell (3 miles) and Hamilton (4 miles). The town’s railway station, with direct rail links with Edinburgh and Glasgow, is a short walk to the south. Glasgow is approximately 25 mins by car and the M74 artery to the south is drivable in 10 mins.

The premises are located on the north side of Main Street (A721) the main thoroughfare through Wishaw. The surrounding area is a mix of residential and commercial property uses and nearby businesses include Lloyds Pharmacy, Homestyle, the Health and Social Care offices of North Lanarkshire Council and a Lidl Supermarket.


The investment / development opportunity comprises two income producing shops with development potential in the vacant upper floors and substantial out buildings to the rear. Both shop units are tenanted by local traders on separate Internal Repairing and Insuring Leases which expire in February 2022. The total rent passing is £11,000 pa. Access to the upper floors and outbuildings is via the pend to the right hand side of the two shops. There are stairs to the rear of the premises, outwith the demise of the shop units, providing a separate access to the upper floors. The outbuildings are a mix of single and two storey brick built buildings with a courtyard in front. These buildings are unsecured, are in a poor state of repair but offer good development potential.
