Real estate fund manager Moorfield has sold a 385,000 sq ft shed in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire for £29m to REIT W.P. Carey.
The unit had been let to Poundstretcher on a 25 year lease that started in December 2017 but was subsequently sub-let to Buy It Direct in 2019 on a 10 year sub-lease. The NDC was acquired by Moorfield in April 2017.
