£500k restoration project provides home for two Yorkshire companies
A £500k restoration project has provided a new Yorkshire home for a construction company and a media firm.
The 17th century New Hall building, on Rooley Lane, was previously the West Bowling Golf Club and has been restored by Frank Marshall Estates.
The company is taking 2,075 sq ft of space in the building, with 2,550 sq ft being taken by the Telegraph & Argus, which reports on news in Bradford.
Edward Marshall, co-founder of Frank Marshall, said: “The Telegraph & Argus has been serving the Bradford region with distinction for more than 150 years.
“It is a West Yorkshire institution. We are proud – and honoured – to have such a prestigious tenant as our neighbours at Newhall.
“We love our offices here at Newhall and we are confident the T&A will as well.
“We feel very much part of the Bradford community and I know how important that is for a newspaper like the T&A. They need to be connected to their readers.
“New Hall is a tremendous building, which had fallen on hard times, and we are proud it is our new home.
“We have invested in excess of £500k in its regeneration and it has been restored to the highest of standards.
“The offices at Newhall are a mixture of old and new, of cutting edge office space with a wonderful historical ambience.
“I feel that reflects the T&A, a traditional newspaper which has adapted brilliantly to the challenges of the 21st century.
“We have had several people interested in the building but we wanted to hold out for a real Bradford tenant and I believe we have ended up with the best we could ever have hoped for.”
