Historic Yorkshire mill featured on ITV's Emmerdale and Heartbeat welcomes five new occupiers
Five new office deals have been completed at a regenerated Yorkshire mill complex between Leeds and Bradford.
Seven Districts Coffee, The Hip Store, Brainstorm, Applied Creative and White Rose Training have all moved into new offices at the Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley, where ITV’s Emmerdale and Heartbeat were filmed
During the past 10 years Sunny Bank Mills has been transformed into a modern office, retail and leisure complex for the 21st century. It is now home to more than 75 companies, who employ a total of 400 staff.
John Gaunt, joint managing director of Edwin Woodhouse, the owner of Sunny Bank Mills, commented: “We are especially pleased to welcome our new occupiers to Sunny Bank Mills as we emerge from a very challenging year.
“There is now a degree of optimism within the Yorkshire business community and these new deals reflect this. We are really excited to play our part in the continuing prosperity of our new tenants.”
Isaac Stott of Seven Districts Coffee explained that the speciality coffee roaster company had chosen Sunny Bank Mills because “it is a really creative, exciting place, with a great community.
“Our business has been steadily been growing over the last year, even during lockdown, and we now need a hub for our core team to meet, plan and continue to build momentum.
“Sunny Bank Mills is the perfect spot to give us this space, with lots of other interesting and growing businesses, providing the chance for sharing ideas and collaborations and simply being inspired.”
James Trivunovic of independent boutique Hip Store added: “We were looking for a space outside of Leeds city centre where we could have a more relaxed and considered approach to working post-Covid.
“Our business is built on a 35-year history within clothing retail in Leeds, so where better to have a HQ than in an amazing reconditioned textile mill?”
Meanwhile Chris Parkinson of Applied Creative said: “To see Yorkshire’s old mills re-purposed for the modern day is really inspiring and, with the diverse mix of businesses and galleries within the Mill, Sunny Bank was just a perfect fit for us.”
