Four new deals have been completed at the Leeds’s Sunny Bank Mill to bring in new tenants from the world of retail, leisure, IT recruitment and engineering consultancy sectors.

Three new tenants, Adesse Search, fit20 and Arlington Interiors, have moved into Sunny Bank Mills, while the rapidly-expanding Adept Consulting Engineering have relocated into larger offices within the mill complex.

During the past six years the mill has been transformed into a modern office complex for the 21st century. It is now home to more than 70 companies, who employ a total of 355 staff.

William Gaunt, joint managing director of Edwin Woodhouse, the owners of Sunny Bank Mills, commented: “These four deals underline the versatility and flexibility of space at Sunny Bank Mills, which is attracting an exciting breadth of occupiers.

“They also illustrate the strength of the post-Brexit Yorkshire economy, with all three companies having the confidence to invest in new premises and in their future.

“More specifically, a boutique IT recruitment consultancy, a pioneering gym operator and a successful kitchen retailer are fantastic additions to the Sunny Bank Mills community, while the decision by Adept Consulting to move into bigger premises at Sunny Bank is a tremendously heartening endorsement of our development,” said Mr Gaunt.

The mill has enjoyed a rich history. At one stage, television series such as Emmerdale and Heartbeat were filmed there.
