Stobart Estates owns a diverse portfolio of properties, ranging from prestige retail sites through light industrial buildings and distribution centres, to premium office space. Stobart Group-occupied property held under the Estates division includes airports and a waterway port in addition to a network of offices, warehouse sites and depots utilised by Eddie Stobart.
Estates is also responsible for the management, development and realisation of all Stobart Group land and building assets. Performance of this division is monitored by regular independent third party valuations of investment properties in the same way that any stand-alone property/asset company would be valued.
A broad base of property assets extending across the commercial retail, office and premium residential sectors, including substantial holdings with development potential:
> All sectors feature high levels of occupancy, with most fully occupied.
> Eleven industrial sites located at highly desireable locations and with a broad geographic spread. The spread covers manufacturing, warehousing and distributions sites, many with attached quality offices.
> Four office sites, including business villages, company headquarters and prestigious central London locations.
> Retail property at seven locations. The broad spread comprises a major retail park in Eastbourne, and large scale retail units, as well a highly desireable property in central London and Chester.
> Nine key sites either currently being developed or planned for development. Including a major distribution hub, a waterway port, highly desireable residential development land and a large character property planned for conversion into premium flats in one of the most prestigious locations in the UK.
Improving the Portfolio
Major funding has been secured for the development of the Stobart Group property portfolio and to make a series of targeted purchases and improvements:
> The delivery of Widnes Phases Two and Three, completing the development of Stobart’s key multimodal distribution hub, and generating significant additional income for the Group.
> Completion of works at London Southend Airport, realising the full potential of the site.
> An existing biomass energy plant in South Wales will be purchased, a similar plant is planned at Stobart’s Widnes estate. The move into energy generation represents a significant new income stream for the Group and offers excellent reciprocal opportunities for the transport and biomass fuel businesses.
> The acquisition of premium sites for development using the Group’s in-house constrcution expertise and ultimate disposal continues to form part of the overall Stobart Estates strategy.
> Recently major strategic disposals have delivered excellent returns.
