"These recent signings are another indicator that businesses can see the potential that the North and particularly Leeds in this instance has to offer."
With the city’s accessibility making it a popular choice, Towngate has recently seen an upturn in tenancy interest in the region.
Starting their occupancies at the company’s Copley Hill Trading Estate are Packaging Services Europe and Nicholls and Clarke.
The spacious, newly refurbished Unit A has been occupied by reusable transit pallet and crate provider Packaging Services Europe. They have taken the 26,115 sq ft warehouse and industrial unit on a 5-year lease.
Also joining the packaging experts at Copley Hill as the new occupants of neighbouring Unit E5, is the Nicholls & Clarke Group. The building product manufacturer and distributor has taken on the tenancy of the 4,985 sq ft space for 10 years.
Elsewhere, distribution and courier service provider Farsley Transport is commencing its 3-year occupation of Unit 4C at the Olympia Trading Estate, located just off Gelderd Road. Adjacent to this 8,055 sq ft warehouse space, Units 4A and B are currently in the final stages of refurbishment and will be available to let individually or as a single 10,814 sq ft unit.
Also setting its sights on the city, with a view to growing its northern operations, is electrical specialist TLA Distribution. The firm has taken on Unit C Turnkey Park – a 3,035 sq ft space comprising a warehouse and trade counter. With a loading yard and parking, the estate is ideally located on Royds Lane – just off Gelderd Road and the A58 – and has easy access to the motorway network.
Commenting on the flurry of lettings, Towngate’s property manager Tom Lamb said: “These recent signings are another indicator that businesses can see the potential that the North – and particularly Leeds in this instance – has to offer.
“The prime positioning of Towngate’s sites – combined with generous loading and parking areas, modernised facilities and optimum security – means we can supply highly functional spaces that fulfil demand.”
Towngate PLC is a property specialist and landlord based in Brighouse, and was advised on these latest four deals by Paul Mack, Jonathan Jacob and Dan Walker of Gent Visick, and Jake Pygall of GVA.
