Leeds trade park has a bright future

Have your say

COME and join us – that’s the message from bosses at an employment park in east Leeds.

Five vacant units at Seacroft Industrial and Trade Park are undergoing a £500,000 refurbishment.

And there is expected to be no shortage of interest from firms wanting to join the businesses already based in the other nine units at the site, next to the A6120 Leeds Outer Ring Road.

Property consultancy Dove Haigh Phillips is jointly marketing the space at the Hermes Asset Management-owned park, where existing occupiers include Screwfix, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Howdens. Simon Dove, of Dove Haigh Phillips, said: “This is a significant consultancy for us, as it underlines the fact that we are very much involved in the day-to-day commercial property letting market, as well as providing advice and expertise on large-scale developments.

“We have a dedicated lettings team, which specialises in office agency and the sub 20,000 sq ft industrial property market, both of which are gaining momentum in Yorkshire. The high-profile tenants already at Seacroft underline its popularity. The five available units range from 4,895 sq ft to 9,711 sq ft, with rents in the region of £5.50. They can be adapted to occupiers’ specific requirements.”

Mr Dove added: “The park’s excellent location provides direct access to the Greater Leeds conurbation and Leeds city centre, which is located 4.25 miles south west via the A64 York Road and A58 Wetherby Road.

“Access to the national motorway network is provided two miles south via junction 46 of the M1, or alternatively 4.5 miles north east via junction 45.” Dove Haigh Phillips is marketing the units with Colliers International.
