New lettings following £1.5m industrial estate refurbishment
Carter Towler has secured two new tenants for the newly refurbished Ringway industrial estate close to Huddersfield town centre.
Simply Door Handles is moving from its former site on Leeds Road into Unit 29 on the estate which is 1,940 sq ft and Kirklees Council is establishing a 15,200 sq ft warehouse facility in Unit 9/10.
Hazel Cooper, of Carter Towler, said: “The improvement programme has been a wise and timely investment by the landlord, it has significantly enhanced the appeal of the estate.
“We have seen a marked increase in the number and quality of enquiries which is now beginning to manifest as positive lettings.
“New tenants as well as existing occupiers such as Tool Station, Rexel, Edmundson Electrical, Crown and Johnstone’s Paints have fully endorsed the modernisation.
“There are just two units remaining now, one is 5,430 sq ft and the other 14,400 sq ft with a further 23,000 sq ft under offer.
“We have a number of trade counter, storage and distribution businesses interested so I don’t think it will be long before deals are agreed on them too and the whole estate, all 31 units are fully occupied.”
The Ringway estate, located on Beck Road in Huddersfield is asset managed by CBRE Global Investors and Howlings Hodgson.
Jonathan Hodgson, of Howlings Hodgson, added: “This is no longer the Ringway Estate that people remember. It’s been completely refurbished to provide a modern business offer capable of supporting a range of businesses so we shouldn’t be surprised that the market is responding despite the challenges of COVID.
“The refurbished units have received new roofs, automatic roller shutters, modern and remodelled office, kitchen and welfare facilities and eco-efficient LED lighting.
“The common areas such as the secure yards, fencing and landscaping have all been enhanced too and the estate has been rebranded to reflect its new improved status.”
Carter Towler are joint agents for the estate with Knight Frank Leeds office.
