Northampton is one of England’s fastest growing towns with a population in excess of 200,000 and is the strategic location for many national organisations as their central hub for business. Northampton has excellent rail and road communications, with a direct train service to London (3 trains per hour taking as little as 56 minutes) and road links to the M1 at Junctions 15, 15a & 16 and additionally to the A14 in the North.

The property occupies a mid-terrace position in a block of 5 similar units constructed in 2005 at the lower end of a cul-de-sac called Fortune Close. The property has been developed on land adjacent to the Mazda Dealership and is in a location where a mix of uses including motor dealership, trade-counter warehousing and offices predominate. The Riverside Estate has been developed since the 1990’s on a site adjacent to the A45 Expressway providing excellent road access to the M1 motorway approximately 4 miles southwest (Junction 15) and the A14 to the east. Retail warehousing has been developed at the front of the estate with occupiers including Homebase, Boots and Halfords. The estate has become a favoured location for motor dealerships including Mercedes, Land Rover, Renault and Peugeot and Mazda.
