An exciting opportunity has arisen to lease the former Steiner building in Carnmore, Galway. Adjacent to Galway Airport and strategically located close to Junction 19 of the M6 motorway, the impressive commercial premises offers significant potential. BV Commercial is inviting expressions of interest from potential tenants with options available to rent from 5,000sq ft to the entire 80,000sq ft property.
The property occupies a prime location in Canmore, 2km from the M6 and 8km from Galway city centre. Affording easy access to the road and rail networks and the city, the former Steiner building is surrounded by open countryside and is situated opposite Galway Airport, a site earmarked by the city and county councils for significant regeneration.
The impressive building comprises four interconnected hangers (warehouses ), numerous office spaces of various sizes situated over two floors, and a large open area suitable for a cafeteria or staff leisure facility. The eaves heights of the hangers are a generous 6.25 to 9.25 metres and there is ample parking on site for both cars and large commercial vehicles.
Particularly suitable for transport, distribution, logistics, and manufacturing organisations, the building could also be remodelled to suit a variety of specialist uses, subject to the appropriate planning permissions being obtained.
The history of the Steiner Building
Built by former owners, the Steiner family, the property was constructed to the highest standards. Engineers travelled from Germany to contribute to the project and to create a robust and practical structure which has stood the test of time exceptionally well.
The facility was custom-made for the family business which supplied raw materials to the capacitor industry. The Steiners based themselves at the building from 1976 until the company closed in 2009, having struggled to compete with suppliers in Eastern Europe. It was Mr Steiner who originally developed the airstrip at Carnmore which was to become Galway Airport.
The future of Galway Airport
Improved road and rail infrastructure saw a fall in demand for internal flights in the 2000s and this decline eventually led to the airport being closed to commercial traffic. Currently leased to a flying club, it has been identified as being of potentially huge importance to the region by the local authorities. Plans have been evolved to regenerate the site in order to attract new industry to the area.
The city and county councils purchased the site and began working on a development masterplan in 2015. This included proposals for part of the airport to be used for TV and film production. Consultations continue but Galway Airport can look forward to an exciting and prosperous future.
There is no doubt that the former Steiner Building represents a significant commercial opportunity. Ideally located, featuring versatile warehouse and office space, and on the doorstep of an exciting regeneration project, it offers huge potential. Properties of this nature rarely become available in such a convenient location and interested parties would be advised to act quickly.
