A YORK bathroom specialist is expanding with a move into new premises at Clifton Moor.

Bluewater Bathrooms has let a 2,760sq ft trade counter and industrial unit in Auster Road on a five-year lease.

The unit is part of a complex owned by clients of Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers Europe LLP.

Richard Flanagan, of Flanagan James Property Consultants, who advised the owners, said: “This particular unit proved to be extremely popular, having main road frontage, and being immediately opposite the recently reopened Wickes.

“We have witnessed a number of successful lettings of the units at Clifton Moor over recent months, which is testimony to its popularity for trade counter businesses.”

Staff at Bluewater are now undertaking their fit-out with the aim of opening at Easter.

Paul Lount, of Bluewater, said: “Our business was established in 2010 and has grown year on year. This has resulted in us outgrowing our existing premises.

“The new premises are in the ideal location and will allow us to accommodate a new bathroom and kitchen showroom which will be open for Easter.”
