Towngate Plc. has completed a deal with Rexel UK Limited, trading as W F Senate, to take a 10 year lease of their 4,985 sq ft Trade Counter/Warehouse property at the popular Copley Hill Trading Estate, Whitehall Road, Leeds.

The unit is ideally located for W F Senate’s needs, having prominence onto the Whitehall Road and the “Big Yellow” roundabout, positioned in the heart of this thriving trade counter region of Leeds. 

Philip Caspell, Property Surveyor at Towngate Plc., stated “We are delighted to be welcoming our new tenants; W F Senate, onto the Copley Hill Trading Estate and very much look forward to working with them. The proximity of the Unit to Leeds City Centre and the motorway network ensures maximum exposure and we hope they will enjoy many years of successful trading from the site.”

Ben Schofield of Carter Towler, who acted on behalf of Towngate Plc commented “It is encouraging to see activity within the trade counter sector, particularly from a well established brand such as Rexel UK. It shows there is demand for a well located good quality product, and the addition of Rexel UK strengthens Copley Hill Trading Estate’s position as one of the premier trade counter destinations in Leeds.”
