This prime historic site in Greenock is new to the market, providing purchasers with a range of opportunities to develop a potential residential or commercial development site (subject to securing appropriate statutory consent).

The subjects extend to approximately 2.11 hectares (5.2 acres), having originally formed part of the former Tate & Lyle sugar refinery which closed in 1997. 

An access road has been left in place from Lynedoch Street, located adjacent to M&J Timber.

The site itself is rectangular, with short tails at the top east and west sections, and occupies an elevated position that enjoys open aspects of the River Clyde and Greenock town centre.

Bowman Rebecchi has a recent Site Investigation survey available, as well as drawings showing a potential social housing scheme creating 72 units. A Topographic survey is also available to share with interested parties. 


Greenock is located approximately 20 miles west of Glasgow with a residential population of over 50,000 persons and a core catchment population of approximately 270,000 persons.

The subjects occupy an attractive elevated position on the eastern side of Drumfrochar Road in Greenock, which can be accessed from Baker Street, Lynedoch Street or Dunlop Street. 

Other enterprises are close by, including the Pelagia fish plant which is currently being redeveloped as well as M&J Timber. Drumfrochar Industrial Estate is further along Drumfrochar Road with Broomhill Community Gardens and the new £1.8m food and drink hub - Baker Street - located on the corner of Drumfrochar Road and Baker Street.

Greenock Central Railway Station is a 10-minute walk providing regular train services to and from Glasgow Central Station and Gourock, with adjoining services to Wemyss Bay and Paisley. Greenock's town centre is a 10-minute walk.
