The region’s leading car retail park has completed an expansion which has allowed the addition of over 250 display spaces.
Expanding motor business, Motor Depot, recently launched its seventh national showroom at Vroom Car Retail Park, and now work has completed on its new and purpose built 10,000 square foot service and car preparation centre.
Vroom, which is managed and marketed by North East property firm Bradley Hall, is an eight-acre car retail site located on the Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate which displays 750 vehicles on site across four independent car retailers and associated, service and repair centres.
The retail park was purchased and regenerated in a multi-million pound development project by regional investment company Northumberland Estates. Vroom is based on the Tyne Tunnel Industrial Estate, opposite the Silverlink Retail Park, and at the intersection of the A19 and A1058 Coast Road.
Laura Walker, estate management surveyor for the property firm, said: “Vroom has proven to be very popular to traders as it offers flexible business space in an ideal location. It’s visibility is fantastic for passing trade as well as providing an easily accessible location for those travelling to the site.
“We are dedicated to supporting Northumberland Estates in creating an outstanding location for businesses and customers. The site is expanding and there are flexible opportunities available for retailers to join Vroom, including the ability to build bespoke and self-contained dealerships on the adjoining site.”
Highways England is continuing a £75m road improvement project to the A19/A1058, which has now moved off the Vroom site marking a significant milestone for existing and future occupiers. Following this, Northumberland Estates is investing in a series of improvements across the area, including landscaping, new signage and CCTV.
Senior asset manager at Northumberland Estates, Michael O’Driscoll, said: “There has been a great deal of activity at Vroom and the surrounding area over the last 12 months, but we are now in a position where the site is significantly more visible from the A19.
“The road improvement scheme is due to complete in 2019 and will dramatically enhance the prospects of the location.
“The recent completion of the new preparation space further adds to Vroom’s presence and success. This is a fantastic addition to the retail park and is the next step in our development and expansion.
“We are looking forward to continuing to welcome a number of local and national retailers to the site as we create further opportunities.”
Vroom traders include, Motor Depot, WD Motors, Whitley Bay Motors and Motorcare.
The last two units are available on the site, which includes a 4,200 square foot showroom, a 5,400 square foot PDI and servicing unit, 108 external car sales spaces and 14 car parking spaces. For further details or to arrange a viewing please contact Bradley Hall on 0191 232 8080.
