A significant warehouse development, ideal for logistics, warehousing, data centre and energy uses, has come to the lettings market in Co Longford, with the potential for one or more occupiers.

Fisherstown in Clondara, Co Longford, is a 330,000sq ft warehouse development. The property, which sits on the banks of the river Shannon, comprises a detached industrial unit which includes industrial workspace and ancillary offices. The site extends to approximately 75 acres.

The land was recently acquired by the Mashup Group, an Irish-owned entrepreneurial concern whose projects include Schoolbooks.ie and BusterBox.com. It also has property interests in Dublin, Longford and Tralee across residential, industrial, recycling, office, retail and solar.

The site dynamics include a grid connection with planning permission for a solar farm, while its proximity to water will likely enhance its attractiveness as a data centre location.

A development team is being appointed to prepare a master plan for the site, with consultations underway with Longford County Council.

Agent Sherry FitzGerald P Burke has been appointed to lease the development, with rents expected in the range of €4-€5 per sq ft, depending on occupier requirements.

Agent Padraig Burke says: “With rents for logistics warehousing in Dublin close to €11 per sq ft, and very little product available, this development offers a very affordable alternative in a prime location that offers ready access to all of Ireland.”
