Three new deals have been completed at Sunny Bank Mills, the iconic Yorkshire mill complex between Leeds and Bradford.
The Art Rooms and Beckett & Beckett Interiors are relocating to the refurbished mill in Farsley, where YTV’s Emmerdale and Heartbeat were filmed, while Adesse Partners Ltd is moving to a boutique unit within the mill.
During the past 10 years Sunny Bank Mills has been transformed into a modern office, retail and leisure complex. It is now home to 75 companies, who employ a total of almost 400 staff.
These three deals come hard on the heels of a raft of significant office, retail and leisure lettings at Sunny Bank Mills during the past few weeks.
John Gaunt, joint Managing Director of Edwin Woodhouse and Co, the owners of Sunny Bank Mills, said: “We are delighted to welcome both The Art Rooms and Beckett & Beckett to Sunny Bank Mills. Both are excellent examples of quality local businesses being attracted to a quality business environment.
“Their moves underline the flexibility of space at Sunny Bank Mills, which is now attracting an exciting breadth of occupiers. The Art Rooms have relocated from the iconic Salts Mill in Saltaire, which is a real feather in our caps, while Beckett & Beckett are one of the leading interior design companies in the region.
“Meanwhile, we were delighted to be able to offer Adesse Search a superb new unit, more suited to their work, above Beckett & Beckett in the refurbished Festoon Rooms. This is a great illustration of how we can respond to our tenants’ needs, demonstrating the versatility of the mill’s buildings.”
William Gaunt, co-managing director, added: “This has been a very eventful couple of months for us. Apart from these three new exciting deals, we have just completed the £2 million regeneration of Weavers’ Yard in the heart of the mill, which has transformed the whole complex, and a micro-brewery has opened. We are looking forward to 2021 with confidence, despite the many challenges of 2020.”
