Rise in number of tenants is sweet news

Have your say

SIX more businesses have signed up to take on space at a Leeds business park.

The companies have opted to move in at Sugar Mill Business Park.

The site, run by property fund manager Highcross, is located just off Dewsbury Road.

The site incorporates Sugar Mill and The Refinery which provide office, workshop and serviced accommodation.

The new occupiers at the site are charitable organisation KeyRing, Sheard Images, Leeds Late Night Drinks, Northern Case Management and JR Pridham Services.

They have taken on office space ranging in size from 115 sq ft to 750 sq ft.

The Sugar Mill Business Park provides office space from 170 sq ft up to 20,000 sq ft in a secure business environment, with an on-site management team, meeting and conference room facilities for hire, parking and 24-hour access.

Highcross has also completed nine lease renewals to existing occupiers at the business park.

Highcross asset manager Alex Hyams said: “Our strategy of providing flexible, cost-effective accommodation at Sugar Mill is continuing to be very successful.

“The space coming to the market shortly within the Refinery will diversify our offering further allowing us to meet demand and continue to present strong terms to prospective occupiers.”

The agents for Highcross at the Sugar Mill Business Park are Ryden and WSB.

Development manager Charlie Crabtree from KeyRing, a charity which supports vulnerable people with learning and other disabilities to live independently in their own homes, said: “We moved from our existing office in Hunslet because Sugar Mill’s location is much better for us, the building has been renovated to a high standard and, of course, an attractive price was an important factor.”
