Leading Yorkshire development and investment company Glentrool Estates Group is delighted Astra Park, its flourishing industrial park in Leeds, is now fully let.
Glentrool bought Astra Park in Parkside Lane, Hunslet, from the John Laing Pension Fund for £2.94 million 15 months ago.
The 4 acre, 71, 924 sqft park comprises 14 units, which are all occupied. Tenants include Rhodar Ltd, Thermo Logistics, The Leeds Sofa Company and Avanta UK Ltd with units ranging from 2,579 sqft to 10,461 sqft.
The latest occupier is Linx Hoardings, who have signed a five-year lease on a 4,141 sqft unit. Linx are expanding, relocating from Garnet Road in Leeds.
Lauren O’Toole, property portfolio manager for Ilkley-based Glentrool, commented: “We are delighted to welcome a successful local company like Linx Hoardings to Astra Park. Their arrival means the park is now fully let, with excellent tenants committing to the future of the park.
“We have recently signed a new five-year lease with the Leeds Sofa Company, another thriving local family-run company. We believe very strongly in supporting the Leeds economy, by providing quality industrial property space at competitive rents. There are currently nearly 150 people working on site.
“Astra Park ticks many boxes. We are pro-actively managing the park by improving the quality of the environment, improving security with the installation of electric gates and reviving the tired landscaping. Now it’s fully let, we are looking at plans to expand and develop the park in the coming years.
“It is superbly located, with Junction 5 of the M621 less than a mile away. The M621 links swiftly to the M1 and M62, providing direct access of Yorkshire’s superb motorway network and the East and West Coast ports and Leeds city centre only 1.6 miles away.
“Hunslet itself is a proven industrial and logistics location with local occupiers including BT Fleet, Graphic International Packaging, Symingtons and Premier Waste Recycling. This underlines the robust nature of our park,” said Ms O’Toole.
