Arnold Clark has sold its former FCA Group showroom in Perth to Network Rail and a 6.8-acre site in Kemnay to offshore lifting equipment specialist Safelift Offshore.
Marketed for sale by Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, the properties have both been vacated by the AM100 retailer, with the Perth site selling for £950,000 and the former Kemnay dealership site changing hands for an undisclosed fee.
The one-acre former Fiat and Abarth franchise on Perth’s St Leonards Bank lies adjacent to the main line railway station and will be used to create a new maintenance depot for Network Rail, bringing together staff from other locations acros the city under one roof.
Jonathan Reid, partner at Shepherd, said: “We’re delighted to secure this sale on behalf of our client to Network Rail following much interest in this attractive accommodation and site in Perth.”
The former Arnold Clark showroom in Kemnay, Aberdeenshire, which sits on a 6.8 acre plot has been sold to Safelift Offshore, a supplier of offshore lifting equipment.
Arnold Clark estates manager Derek Cuthbertson said: “The successful sale of these two sites was assisted greatly by Shepherd’s partner-led approach combined with an in-depth knowledge of the local markets to achieve the desired deal.”
