Previously occupied by the world-renowned metal manufacturer Yorkshire Copper Works until 1980, Towngate acquired the site in 2003. The firm has now concluded an extensive renovation and rebranding operation, readying the 300,000sqft space and development land for a new tenant.
All buildings have been reroofed and the external elevations have had cladding replaced. The demolition of an entire bay has additionally paved the way for increased loading capacity, while the installation of ground-level loading doors at the rear will further boost circulation efficiency.
The internal space features an open-plan working environment with a functional height of over 9 metres.
Commenting on the finished renovations, Towngate’s property manager Tom Lamb said: “We’re delighted with the overhaul of this historic property, and are excited to bring it back to the market. Whilst we have taken care of the key structural refurbishment, we have intentionally left the warehouse as a blank canvas, enabling modifications to suit a new tenant’s requirements.
“This site presents a truly unique industrial letting opportunity, and all interested parties now have the opportunity to visit the building for a tour.”
Mirfield-based digital marketing agency, The Bigger Boat, tackled the rebranding of the property, which has included the production of illuminated signage, a lettings brochure and a new website.
The expansive site is available to let in its entirety to a single occupier, and includes industrial warehouse accommodation, two-storey ancillary office buildings and a 287-space car park, along with 11 acres of expansion land.
Now that the site is open for occupancy, onsite CGI filming is set to take place to showcase the potential of the property and site as a whole.
Industrial agents and potential occupants interested in a viewing should contact Property Manager, Tom Lamb or Marketing Manager Julia Ford for further information.
