Work has been completed on the Vroom Car Retail Park expansion, with the Newcastle-based car supermarket now capable of housing a further 250 vehicles.
Vroom, which is managed and marketed by North East property firm Bradley Hall, is an eight-acre car retail site located on the Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate which displays 750 vehicles on site across four independent car retailers and associated, service and repair centres.
Northumberland Estates put up a multi-million pound investment to the development of the project at the intersection of the A19 and A1058 Coast Road.
Highways England is continuing a £75m road improvement project to the A19/A1058, which has now moved off the Vroom site.
Following this, Northumberland Estates is investing in a series of improvements across the area, including landscaping, new signage and CCTV.
Northumberland Estates’ senior asset manager Michael O’Driscoll said: “There has been a great deal of activity at Vroom and the surrounding area over the last 12 months, but we are now in a position where the site is significantly more visible from the A19.
“The road improvement scheme is due to complete in 2019 and will dramatically enhance the prospects of the location.
“The recent completion of the new preparation space further adds to Vroom’s presence and success. This is a fantastic addition to the retail park and is the next step in our development and expansion.
“We are looking forward to continuing to welcome a number of local and national retailers to the site as we create further opportunities.”
Vroom traders include, Motor Depot, WD Motors, Whitley Bay Motors and Motorcare.
The last two units are available on the site, which includes a 4,200 square foot showroom, a 5,400 square foot PDI and servicing unit, 108 external car sales spaces and 14 car parking spaces.
