JCT600 motors into York’s Centurion Park
Parcel group DPD has sold a 17,500 sq ft unit to the regional car sales giant, a plot that adjoins the dealership group’s existing operation at the Clifton Moor site.
JCT600, which has multiple dealerships, service, accident repair and van centres across Yorkshire, Humberside, Lincolnshire and the North East, paid an undisclosed sum for the unit, which it intends to use as a vehicle preparation centre.
The firm is a well-known, family-run business with a 75-year pedigree and partnership arrangements with 21 leading car brands, including Aston Martin, Porsche, Rolls Royce, Bentley and Ferrari.
Leeds property consultancy GV&Co advised DPD on the off-market transaction alongside sbh, and JCT600 was represented by Eaton Commercial.
Jonathan Jacob, senior surveyor from GV&Co, said: “Having let DPD their new state-of-the-art parcel facility on Northminster Business Park, we were delighted to have been retained to sell their building on Clifton Moor, which they had outgrown.
“Unit 1, Centurion Park provided a unique opportunity for JCT600 to acquire a modern, low site density building adjoining their existing ownership and we are pleased to have concluded the sale quickly.”
Robert Eaton, director at Eaton Commercial, added: “The opportunity for JCT600 to secure the freehold of further significant property in the heart of their dealership and support network at Clifton Moor, York, was not to be ignored, with the deal being rapidly concluded.
“JCT600 are now working up their plans for the business operation from the site.”
