Finnegan sales boost market

CONFIDENCE could be growing again in Sheffield’s property investment market after J F Finnegan sold two significant developments to pension funds.

Finnegan has sold 835 Ecclesall Road – a mixed use development on the site of a former car dealer, close to its head office.

Tenants of the development include restaurant chain Bistrot Pierre, an Aga store, dental practice and hairdressers.

The company has separately sold Site 3 within its predominantly industrial Parkway One Business Centre development, which is occupied by a healthcare outsourcing business.

The sums paid for the two developments have not been disclosed.

Law firm DLA Piper’s Sheffield office acted for Finnegan on both sales.
