Bradford was once the wool capital of the world, but it has since moved on to fast become one of Britain’s most diverse cities. The city has a booming economy and a UNESCO Heritage status to its name, becoming the world’s first UNESCO City of Film. The arts are engrained in Bradford's culture, with venues such as the National Media Museum, Cartwright Hall and Impressions Gallery all pulling in hordes of artistic aficionados every year ready to discover the latest talent.
Towngate Plc has a range of fantastic industrial units to let in Bradford, taking advantage of its location on the M62 to provide tenants with the ideal logistical platform upon which to build their business. Bradford University's excellent School of Management also offers local businesses the pick of emerging entrepreneurial talent.
The City has gone through extensive regeneration over the past 10 years, and Towngate’s industrial units to let in Bradford have also been a part of this rejuvenation of the city’s infrastructure. Industrial and commercial property in Bradford has benefited from the extensive expansion of the Euroway Industrial Estate, which now covers roughly 3 million sq ft of land. Its location just off the M606 motorway has helped it become one of the North’s premier industrial sites. The City Centre itself has been subject to a £35 million regeneration project, with the aim of bringing in 2,800 new jobs to the area.
Bradford’s various transport links, as well as its heritage, have helped it become one of the most popular places to let industrial property. Its position at the heart of the national motorway network gives excellent access for haulage companies. The M606, a spur off the M62 motorway, gives excellent access to all parts of the country, and the M1 is less than 15 miles away.
