Work on £3m Huddersfield business park nearing completion

Work is nearing completion on the £3 million Bridge Business Park in Huddersfield which is expected to create 100 jobs.

West Yorkshire property company Frank Marshall Estates is developing the park speculatively, having bought the land from Mamas & Papas back in 2015.

The 2.73 acre site is situated next to the headquarters of Mamas & Papas in Colne Bridge Road, just off the main A62 Leeds Road and close to Junction 25 of the M62.

Edward Marshall, or Frank Marshal Estates, said: “This is an extremely significant project for us. We are creating a high-quality employment park, which should create up to 100 jobs.

“There is a distinct lack of high-quality and flexible light industrial units in the Huddersfield area, so we are hoping to satisfy the pent-up demand from small-to-medium-sized businesses, who are looking for attractive, practical and modern premises, combining warehousing and distribution space, with hi-tech office facilities.

“There are six business units on the park, ranging from 2,500 sq ft to 10,750 sq ft. They are built in three blocks, arranged around a central service courtyard, providing room for vehicles to turn round and park. Rents wil be in the region of £8 per sq ft.”

Mark Hanson of West Yorkshire property consultancy Walker Singleton, incorporating Hansons, who are marketing the site for Frank Marshall Estates, said: “Considerable interest has already been expressed by a number of prospective tenants for the site and this will no doubt increase when the buildings are completed next month.”
