A pioneering development offering workshop and office space in Armley has been fully let in record time.
The Nano Park Company bought a one-acre site off Pickering Street, Armley from the Yorkshire textile company James Hare in March 2020.
Bradford-based specialist construction company Percy Pickard Contractors, led by construction director Chris Balme, finished building work last summer – and already seven hybrid nano units and two 2,000 sq ft high-end industrial units are occupied, creating 50 new and sustainable jobs.
Edward Marshall, of the Bradford-based Nano Park Company, said: “We are incredibly proud that our latest Nano Park has been fully let before completion and in record time.
“This is a ringing endorsement of our Nano Park concept, which features warehousing space on the ground floor, with offices above, providing an ideal base for small and fledgling companies and satellite operations for larger firms.
“This is another of our fully-let Nano parks in Yorkshire, underling the fact that we are leading the way in hybrid working business parks and are fast becoming the top name in small unit development.”
The new tenants at Armley are: Niba Nail Care; ELR Style; PMP Distribution; T4mation, 5create; Optadent Solutions; Tungsten Media; and Libation Rum.
Mt Marshall added: “We are in the age of the entrepreneur with more and more small and start-up companies looking for self-contained space of their own.
“To meet this demand, we are providing flexible, affordable and attractive business premises to help companies of this type to grow and prosper, where they want to be. This could be in an attractive setting, a great location or a site with superb transport links.
“We are focused on sustainability in our Nano Parks and have eliminated gas from the schemes. We now fit air source heat pumps as standard keeping us at the forefront of environmental performance in our sector. The success of our Nano Parks across Yorkshire means this model is working. And how.”
