Park Valley Mills Commercial Development Huddersfield Third Phase Complete and Fully Let

The third phase of the regeneration of the Park Valley Mills commercial development in Huddersfield is now complete and fully let.

The site, owned by Holmfirth Dyers, is being transformed into a business park that features 18 brand new industrial units with office and storage space.

The mills were formerly derelict for a number of years, with many buildings falling into disrepair. The revamped site off Meltham Road, Lockwood, will create new jobs and regenerate the area. In total, over 100 new jobs have been created on site.

Phase Three of the commercial development is now fully occupied thanks to two significant new lettings. The new occupiers are Boge Compressors and The Gift Oasis.

Boge Compressors will occupy Units 10, 11 and 12, which total 12,750 sq ft, while The Gift Oasis will occupy Units 13 and 14, a total of 5,000 sq ft.

The Gift Oasis’ Lisa Benfield said: “By 2012, we were outgrowing our old premises in the Canal Works in Huddersfield and we were shoulder to shoulder with our quirky gifts. So the quest began for a new home.

“Mountains of research and establishments later, Park Valley Mills was found. It was the shining light in the distance with its new buildings, which had more room, and an accommodating site manager, who agreed to our request to have an office attached to our warehouse.

“Of course the large size, the security and the secluded location were also selling points when researching our new home. Park Valley Mills was perfect. Our staff has now increased for 10 to 20 and there is so much more room for stock, which is just as well with Christmas just around the corner.“

Work on the fourth phase of the 14,000 sq ft development will be finished next month with three units already under offer.
Mike Haigh, partner with leading Leeds property consultancy Dove Haigh Phillips, commented: “This is a superb development for Huddersfield, which is already creating jobs and regenerating the area.”
