Darlington’s Yard is a long-standing industrial & warehousing / workshops site of 3 acres in Wirral, in the North West.
It has evolved in the 25 years since 1995 from a simple operational haulage yard with weighbridge, & rough storage, into a busy commercial site featuring a number of small service units, storage, warehousing & transport with fully upgraded facilities, surfaces, buildings & setting.
At each stage of this long-term managed development the Owners have called upon Bob Hyatt for advice & for professional surveying & property services.
He worked with the Owners throughout the period on all elements of strategic planning, professional inputs & site management as a key constituent of the changes & improvements to the site & the developments secured in its income values.
The development over the 25 year project has been a microcosm of all the professional, strategic & management capabilities of Hyatt on Property. And, their ability to get complex jobs done, even in challenging circumstances.
Reacting to the range & status of leases on the site & reflecting the owner’s long-term objectives, Bob Hyatt devised an innovative, new, over-arching lease arrangement through which the status of the site could be simplified & strengthened.
The necessary programme of negotiations & processes was completed satisfactorily.
The result for the owner Client is a more stable & clearer positon which also provides the opportunity for further site developments. The prospects for the usage & scope of the site have been advanced significantly.
The latest stage of innovative strategy devised by Bob Hyatt has seen the completion of a long-leasehold agreement for an incoming leaseholder, identified & recruited by Hyatt, who has now taken responsibility for management of the site & all tenancies. The freeholder retains its position while able to relinquish the management burden. Hyatt are now working for both Freeholder & Leaseholder on the long-term development for the site.
