Ford main dealer Fordthorne has purchased the 16,300 sq ft former TB Davies industrial building on Penarth Road, Cardiff, advised by Cooke & Arkwright. The detached industrial warehouse unit occupies a half-acre site near to Fordthorne's main car showroom premises on Penarth Road.

The new unit will be adapted and refurbished to create a commercial vehicle showroom and workshops. TB Davies, advised by Knight Frank, has invested in new premises in Cardiff Bay. Jeremy Symons who advised Fordthorne comments, “Fordthorne is creating a new Transit Centre Showroom and workshop, and creating an additional 15 jobs.”

Cardiff Waterside is a significant property holding for Aviva Investors at almost 500,000 sq ft. Our experiences show the benefit of working with a regional specialist where occupational markets can be unlocked with a good team with excellent local contacts. Ben Bolton and his team have done this for us for many years and been fundamental to our success and a very low void rate in Cardiff.
