Next £3 million industrial development starts on site
Following the delivery of the two successful industrial buildings at Cross Green Industrial Estate in Leeds on behalf of Towngate, a further contract for a third speculative industrial unit has been awarded to Caddick Construction.
The Yorkshire-based construction company will deliver a 57,500 sq ft detached double portal framed building along with infrastructure works and services. Work has now started on the Pontefract Lane site and will complete in March 2020.
Caddick Construction delivered the first two units as part of the Towngate Link project, with both being snapped up as pre-lets. Wine merchant, London City Bond, has expanded into the 55,000 sq ft detached warehouse and Beerhawk took the second 62,500 sq ft warehouse.
Robert Smith from Towngate said: “Units TL1 and TL2 were delivered to an exceptionally high standard and Caddicks worked professionally throughout. As a result, we have now awarded this next phase to the Caddicks team.”
Chris Allott, senior contracts manager from Caddick Construction, said: “We are delighted to be working with Towngate again on this next phase and look forward to delivering another successful commercial building to further expand this popular development.”
Cross Green Industrial Estate is just a mile from the M1 motorway and Leeds City Centre. It is one of the city’s largest industrial estates and home to a number of manufacturers. Approximately 3,000 people work at the site.
