The appointment, which consolidates property management services across Frasers Property’s UK business parks portfolio, commenced at the beginning of September and comes on the back of several recent development announcements at Hillington Park, including completion dates for the 133,000 sq ft West 100 & 200 project and the start of the £1.9 million redevelopment of warehousing facilities at Carnegie Road.
Commenting on the appointment, Grant Edmondson, Commercial Director at Hillington Park said: “With the sales programme concluded and a significant amount of new industrial and logistics development due to complete next year the timing was right to appoint MAPP to take over the property management at Hillington Park.
“As we push forward our growth plans, we look forward to working with the MAPP team to deliver high levels of service performance and a great working environment for both Frasers Property and our occupiers.”
