Yorkshire nano unit development sees “astounding success” with latest £300k site

The Nano Park Company, which specialises in creating combined workshop and office space across Yorkshire, has announced its pioneering development in Armley is nearing completion.

The Nano Park Company bought a one-acre site off Pickering Street, Armley for £300k from the Yorkshire textile company James Hare in March 2020.

Bradford based specialist construction company Percy Pickard Contractors is scheduled to finish building work towards the end of next month, and already one occupier has signed up for 3,730 sq ft of office, workshop and industrial space.

Altogether the Nano Park will comprise seven two-storey 1,730 sq ft Nano units and two 2,000 sq ft industrial units. The Nano units will create 50 new and sustainable jobs.

Edward Marshall, a director of the Nano Park Company, explained: “The astounding success of our ground-breaking Nano Parks in Bradford and Wakefield, which are completely full, has encouraged us to repeat the model elsewhere in Yorkshire.”

“We are absolutely delighted that one occupier has already committed to taking one Nano unit and one industrial unit at Armley before the development is completed and before we have started any marketing. That is testament to the reputation of our Nano Parks and to the quality space and facilities they offer.

“Ours is one of only a very few small industrial schemes in Leeds. The arrival of Channel 4 in Leeds has acted as a catalyst for a creative resurgence in the city.

“We are now providing flexible, affordable and attractive business premises to help companies of this type to grow and prosper, where they want to be. This could be in an attractive setting, a great location or a site with superb transport links.

“They were snapped up at Bradford and Wakefield, and we have every confidence they will be in Armley.”
