Leeds warehouse launches to Yorkshire property market following extensive refurbishment

Yorkshire developer, Eshton, has completed its extensive refurbishment of Express House, a 25,380 sq. ft. warehouse unit with ancillary offices on a 1.78-acre site in Gildersome, Leeds.

The former DHL depot is now readily available to occupy and has been brought to market by the Industrial team at CBRE in Leeds, alongside joint agents, Holder & Co.

Express House comprises detached premises incorporating c.17,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space and more than 8,000 sq. ft. of high quality, two-storey office accommodation with canteen facilities.

The unit benefits from a low site density with extensive yard areas to two elevations, together with generous parking and 16 loading doors.

Situated just 6.5 miles from Leeds City Centre and 10 miles from Bradford City Centre, Express House is accessed via the A650 Wakefield Road. It runs adjacent to the M621, being just a quarter of a mile from J27 (M62), offering convenient access to the motorway network and excellent connectivity for the whole of Yorkshire and beyond.

David Singleton, director at Eshton said: “Good quality industrial and warehouse space is in short supply in the region, so we are delighted to complete the building’s extensive refurbishment works which has ensured the property is in move-in condition for the new occupier.

“Express House offers occupiers a rare opportunity to acquire a modern unit with excellent transport links, and we expect to see interest from within Yorkshire and from potential occupiers based further afield who are looking for a strategic base in the North.”

Sophie Angus, associate director at CBRE’s Industrial team in Leeds, said: “We are delighted to bring Express House to market following a full internal and external renovation programme undertaken by Eshton.

“The premises are now available for occupation and are suited to industrial, warehouse and distribution use, with the office provision proving an attractive attribute to those occupiers looking for an HQ type facility. We are already seeing strong interest from within the Yorkshire market and anticipate this to continue.”
