Former Showroom Revs Up Market

Posted on 26th October 2015

We are pleased to announce that we have been appointed to find new tenants for a significant, roadside retail property in Preston city centre. 

We are marketing the leasehold of the former Honda showroom on the corner of Plungington Road and Blackpool Road on behalf of private landlords and can confirm that initial interest in the property has been high. 

Joe Assalone, Partner at Robert Pinkus & Co. said, “This property has prominent roadside presence on a busy commuter A road and interest in the property so far has been very encouraging. The owners are currently in discussions with local planners over a Change of Use on the premises which would considerably open up the options for future use to include retail, restaurant or leisure, taking advantage of the designated parking on site for 70 vehicles. We are considering all options for this property and due to the varied proposals received so far, we would be surprised at this stage if it did remain as a car showroom.” 

350 Blackpool Road offers a total showroom space of 4,921 sq ft together with the extensive parking. Positioned on Blackpool Road (A5085), a busy arterial route, the property provides access to the A59 which in turn leads to Junction 31 of the M6. 

Internally, the single storey showroom has a suspended acoustic tile ceiling incorporating spot lighting, air conditioning and heating via a gas-fired hot air blowers. WC and kitchen facilities are also provided. 

To register your interest for this property or to book a viewing please contact Joe Assalone on 01772 769000 or email
