Sunderland is a coastal city situated in the North East of England at the mouth of the River Wear, approximately 12 miles south-east of Newcastle upon Tyne and 13 miles north-east of Durham.

The property is situated off Pallion New Road in what is an established and busy commercial area with excellent access to the region’s transport network.  The Queen Alexandra Bridge and the recently opened Northern Spire Bridge sit either side of Pallion Shipyard and both bridges link to Wessington Way which, in turn, links to the A19 approximately one mile to the west.  The property is a 5 minute walk to Pallion Metro Station which gives access to the wider Tyne & Wear area.

Occupiers at the estate are a combination of local and national operators and include GT Project Engineering, LV Shipping, Flogas Britain, Midland Steel Traders and Sunderland Council.


The property comprises a mid-terraced former dry dock on a secure multi-tenanted site with gated entrance.  The unit is of steel portal frame construction with a profile steel sheet clad roof, with 20% roof light provision and cladding to elevations.  There is a maximum clear working height in excess of 30m and two 80 tonne cranes with 160 tonne tandem lift capacity.

Office accommodation is available on site and, externally, there are several shared parking areas across the site and extensive yard space which can be let separately by agreement.  The site benefits from a 110 tonne pad which gives loading access to the river via two 120 tonne kamags.
