Hotpod Yoga snaps up first spot in Chesterfield town centre

Hotpod Yoga is taking unit 7 at Elder Way

Hotpod Yoga will be the first tenant to move into the new units created in the former Co-op department store on Elder Way in Chesterfield.

A 10-year lease has been signed on Unit 7, a 1,420 sq ft unit that will be up and running for its opening on Thursday 18 April. 

The new Hotpod Yoga unit is one of seven and a large basement all created by regeneration specialists Jomast Developments.

Mark Hill, Jomast’s commercial property director, said: “The addition of Hotpod Yoga to Elder Way brings forward the health and wellbeing element we envisaged for the building when we redeveloped it. Elder Way offers an ideal location for businesses. Not only is it an iconic building, but it is centrally located and benefits from excellent amenities and footfall from surrounding businesses, all of which have been further boosted by Chesterfield Borough Council’s investment in the town centre.”

Work is now underway to install the heated pod, showers, toilets, changing and reception areas.

There are now six units that remain available at Elder Way with joint agents, WSB Property and FHP. 

The units range in size from 2,798 sq ft to 4,704 sq ft. A 16,780 sq ft basement is also available.

Councillor Tricia Gilby, Leader of Chesterfield Borough Council, said: “It is fantastic to be able to welcome a new business to the town centre and I am delighted that they have chosen to be based on Elder Way. Following on from the redevelopment of the old Co-op department store we invested in improving the paving and area from Elder Way along Packers Row as part of our revitalising the heart of Chesterfield project. 

“This investment has helped create a more attractive area and we will begin work on the wider project in the marketplace later this year. Using external funding to help improve our town centre is about creating an environment where businesses and visitors want to be, which will help grow our local economy.
