Leeds Knight Frank office to let 43,000 sq ft Bradford business park units
The Leeds office of property consultancy Knight Frank has advised on a significant 43,000 sq ft letting at Hartley Business Park on Dick Lane, Bradford.
Dempson Crooke, the leading Yorkshire manufacturer of paper carrier bags, has signed a five-year lease on Units 5 and 6 at the business park, which is owned by the Hartley Property Group.
A spokesman for the Hartley Property Group commented: “In recent years we have seen confidence return to the industrial property market in Yorkshire - and the letting of another 43,000 square feet in our modern Hartley Business Park is a significant demonstration of this.
“Hartley is grateful to Knight Frank for their expertise and professionalism in facilitating this transaction and we look forward to the letting of the remaining available units on the site.”
Tom Lamb, industrial property specialist with Knight Frank in Leeds, said: “We were delighted to broker this important deal, which enables a successful Yorkshire company like Dempson Crooke to expand into superb new premises.
“This is a high-quality business park, strategically located between Bradford and Leeds and close to Yorkshire’s excellent motorway network. The unit had only very recently come vacant, and therefore the immediate letting to Demspon Crooke illustrated the quality of this product.
“It is not surprising, therefore, that we are already seeing strong interest in the remaining space, with another 40,000 sq ft deal looking close to completion” said Mr Lamb.
The Dempson Crooke deal brings the total occupied space in the Hartley business park to 68,000 sq ft, with 85,000 sq ft still remaining in units ranging from 21,000 sq ft to 38,000 sq ft, with the option to combine multiple units if required.
