Pre-let deal secured on Towngate Link development in Leeds


Commercial and industrial lettings specialist Towngate has confirmed the first of the properties built as part of Phase 2 at the Towngate Link site in Leeds is now pre-let.

The steelwork is now in place of the 57,500 sq ft detached, double portal framed Unit TL3, allowing the new occupier to tailor the space to their specific requirements.

Construction of the second warehouse – TL5 – is expected to start on the Cross Green Industrial Estate next month, with completion in 2020.

Towngate’s property manager Tom Lamb said: “Phase two of the redevelopment is really starting to take shape, and we cannot wait to welcome our first tenant to the site in March 2020.”

Building surveyor David Stanway, of David Stanway & Associates Ltd, oversaw the site clearance and preparatory work and commented on the project progress. He said: “We are as pleased with the second phase of the build as the first — it’s exciting to see the programme taking shape. We’re looking forward to seeing the development unfold and tenants start to take their place.”

Phase one of the Towngate Link construction was complete earlier this year, with London City Bond and Beer Hawk taking occupation of the new units.
