National car supermarket operator Motor Depot has signed up to take space at Vroom, a car retail park owned by Northumberland Estates in North Tyneside.
The new letting will see an additional 300 cars plus a new building of 10,000 sq ft added to the Vroom site which was acquired by the Estate in 2015.
When Highways England commenced a £75m road improvement project to the A19/A1058 last summer, Northumberland Estates saw the chance to invest in a series of improvements across the eight acre site, including landscaping, new signage and CCTV.
Michael O’Driscoll, senior asset manager at Northumberland Estates, said: “There has been a great deal of activity at Vroom and the surrounding area over the last 12 months. These improvements include making the site more visible from the A19.
“The road improvement scheme, due to be completed in 2019, will dramatically enhance the location. We are pleased that Motor Depot has identified this and the wider opportunities that Vroom offers. We are committed to building Vroom’s profile as the region’s premier second hand car retail park and have further opportunities for more brands to join us.”
Vroom is already home to Cartec, WD Motors, Motorcare, McDougal & Breen and Whitley Bay Motors and we anticipate there will be a total of 800 cars on site by the end of 2017.
