Towngate unveils new build on Leeds site

by Julia Ford

Commercial and industrial lettings specialist Towngate PLC hosted a launch earlier this month, to showcase the soon to be complete Towngate Link site, located on Cross Green Way, Leeds, LS9 0SE.

Phase one of the new build programme includes the construction of two brand new industrial warehouse units – TL1 and TL2. The 55,000 sqft and 62,500 sqft properties are set to be ready for occupation in February 2019.

Situated on the well-established Cross Green Industrial Estate, the high specification buildings are strategically located for easy motorway access, and both comprise a two storey office space with the option to add an additional floor if required. In addition, the spaces benefit from a 12m eaves height, 45m deep service yards, and ground level loading. The site has the added advantage of CCTV systems to improve security.

Towngate’s property manager Tom Lamb commented on the launch of the new units: “Our opening event in Leeds was really well attended by industrial agents from the region, so it was a great opportunity to provide an update on this fast-moving construction, along with showcasing CGI images of the completed Phase 1.

“The redevelopment is really starting to take shape and we cannot wait for the completion early next year, so we can bring these exciting properties to the market.”

Building surveyor David Stanway – of David Stanway & Associates Ltd – oversaw the site clearance and preparatory work, and commented on the project progress: “Caddick Construction is well underway with phase one.  Momentum is building and it’s exciting to see the programme advancing. The architects have done a great job with the designs for the site, so we’re looking forward to seeing the development unfold.”

Phase two of the construction will commence during 2019. Initial plans are to create a number of units ranging from 5,000-40,000 sqft – or a single space of up to 80,000 sqft – at this stage, potential occupiers can be given the opportunity to have these tailored to their specific requirements.

Interested parties should enquire via Tom Lamb and Julia Ford at Towngate, or through agents Iain McPhail at Knight Frank and Paul Mack at Gent Visick in Leeds.
