100 jobs to be created as work commences on brand new Huddersfield business park
Work has now commenced on the £3m Bridge Business Park on Colne Bridge Road, Huddersfield.
The 2.73 acre business park is owned by property company Frank Marshall Estates, which acquired the site from Mamas & Papas for an undisclosed sum in 2016.
Situated next to the headquarters of Mamas & Papas on Colne Bridge Road, just off the main A62 Leeds Road and close to Junction 25 of the M6, the business park will create 100 new jobs upon completion.
Jonathan O’Connor of property consultancy Walker Singleton, which is marketing Bridge Business Park, explained: “We expect the park to be finished and ready for occupation by June this year.
“It will feature a selection of light industrial units ranging from 2,500 sq ft to 10,750 ft. These will be available to lease.
He added: “The position of Bridge Business Park is exceptional. It is in an established industrial location, with neighbouring occupiers including Mamas & Papas, VTL and C&J Antich, and is next to the busy A62 Leeds-Huddersfield road, with the M62 just 1.5 miles away.
Edward Marshall, who runs Frank Marshall Estates with Jimmy Marshall, commented: “This is an extremely significant development for us.
“Huddersfield needs an employment park like this and so we are hoping to satisfy the pent-up demand from small-to-medium-sized businesses, who are looking for attractive, practical and modern premises, combining warehousing and distribution space, with hi-tech office facilities.”
Jimmy Marshall added: “We have confidence in the regional industrial property market, which is why we are building speculatively.
“Although Frank Marshall Estates has extensive interests in West Yorkshire, this is our first major development in Huddersfield, one of the county’s foremost towns with a long-established industrial history.
“We are proud to be contributing to the area’s economy, by building bespoke business/industrial units and creating jobs. We are committed to the town.”
The joint marketing agents of the Bridge Business Park are Huddersfield-based property consultancy Hanson Chartered Surveyors.
