Citivale conclude huge letting at Humber Enterprise Park

Yorkshire business specialist Citivale, in conjunction LRE Capital, have let a 150,000 sq ft warehouse at Humber Enterprise Park in Brough to a major UK kitchen manufacturer and retailer.

This is the largest industrial letting within the Hull and East Riding area during the past 12 months.

The kitchen retailer has signed a six-year lease with a three-year break.

The warehouse unit into which the retailer is moving has been recently refurbished and also includes office accommodation.

James Appleton-Metcalfe, Managing Director of Citivale said: “Our competitive rents and unrivalled working environment are proving attractive to a whole raft of different occupiers. It is immensely gratifying to conclude such a large letting to a well-known household name and a leader in their field.

“This is tremendous news for Humber Enterprise Park and brings our industrial accommodation to 100% occupancy. This latest letting completes over 550,000 sq ft of industrial transactions carried out by Citivale at HEP since purchase. This is testament to our ability to deliver on larger refurbishment and development projects.

“We are very proud of what we have achieved here so far. The high quality of the refurbished buildings, the enterprise zone incentives and the park’s excellent location, with superb road and rail access close by, is proving to be a winning combination.”

PPH Commercial Director Ben Medhurst, who concluded the letting on behalf of the landlord Citivale Limited, commented: “We were delighted to be able to complete the largest industrial letting within the Hull and East Riding area in 2018.

“It is especially pleasing that a well-established and growing national business has taken the 150,000 sq ft of storage and distribution space at Humber Enterprise Park. The location was an obvious choice given the easy access and low occupational costs that the site offers.”

So far £6million has been spent on regenerating the whole site, with another £1.2 million earmarked for further improvements. It is estimated that 1,600 new and sustainable jobs will be created when the park is fully developed during the next three years.

James Appleton-Metcalfe added: “LRE Capital and ourselves are keenly aware that our park should not just be a place to work, but also a proper community where to life can be enjoyed. So we are creating a running track on the perimeter of the site; a heritage museum, paying tribute to the rich history of aircraft manufacturing here; green spaces and allotments; break-out areas and spaces for art; and a fitness suite.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £31.50 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
