Yorkshire-based developer, Eshton, is carrying out a full refurbishment of Express House, a 25,380 sq. ft. detached warehouse property in Leeds, after purchasing the former DHL depot for an undisclosed sum.
Combining c.17,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space with more than 8,000 sq. ft. of office accommodation across two storeys, Express House is situated on a 1.78 acre site, adjacent to the M621 and just a quarter of a mile from junction 27 of the M62.
Located in Gildersome, LS27, the property offers excellent connectivity for the whole of Yorkshire and beyond, with convenient access to the motorway network and to Leeds Bradford Airport.
Suited to industrial, warehouse and distribution uses, the unit has 360 degree circulation with large yards to both the front and the rear. With an eaves height of 6.1 metres to the underside of haunch (7.15 metres to the ridge) the property is suitable for racking out and also has the benefit of up to 16 loading doors.
Eshton director, Jonathan Chapman, said: “This property is typical of the developments that Eshton is known for, with its excellent location, low site density, and integral office accommodation. It has been hand-picked for our portfolio and we will refurbish the building to a very high standard to ensure the property is in move-in condition for the new occupier.
“Good quality industrial and warehousing space is in short supply in Yorkshire and this is a rare opportunity to acquire a fantastic unit with excellent transport links. The refurbishment will be completed in March 2020 and we’re already seeing interest from within Yorkshire and from potential occupiers further afield looking for a strategic base in the North.”
The agents for Express House are Owen Holder or Philip Caspell from Holder & Co in Leeds and Sophie Angus from CBRE, also in Leeds.
