Airdrie is a town in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. It lies approximately 12 miles (19km) east of Glasgow city centre and forms part of a conurbation with its neighbour Coatbridge.

The car park provides 386 free car spaces and is the principal car park serving the town centre. Nearby occupiers include the Airdrie Indoor Market, William Hill, Boots, Iceland and Post Office.


The subjects form part of a much larger building comprising the indoor market immediately adjacent and the retail units fronting onto Graham Street. The property has a painted roughcast finish with flat roof.

Internally the property is predominantly open plan and fitted out as children’s soft play area. There is a concrete floor throughout with carpeted finish, painted brick walls, and the ceiling is lined with pressed aluminium sheets. A gas-fired warm air heating system is installed and pendant lighting.

The unit is sub-divided to provide a large open plan play area, two “party “ rooms, fully fitted commercial kitchen and newly fitted toilets.

The initial rent is £32,000 per annum and this increases to £35,000 per annum effective 1st May 2020. There is also provision for a rent review in May 2023.


S M Softplay Ltd is a new company incorporated in April 2018. The landlord holds a rental deposit of £8,000 which is held for the first 5 years of the lease.


The property is not presently opted to tax therefore VAT will not be payable on the purchase price.


We are instructed to seek offers in excess of £290,000 (Two Hundred and Ninety Thousand Pounds), subject to contract, which reflects a net initial yield of 10.69%, rising to 11.69% in May 2020, after allowing for standard purchasers costs of 3.25%.
