A £2 million business boost is coming to Lockwood.
Meltham-based commercial property development specialist Towndoor Ltd has announced the purchase of a 1.2 acre commercial site part of Albert Works in Albert Street, Lockwood.
It will develop what was once a former spinning mill into units to be known as the ‘The Dyeworks’ to celebrate Huddersfield’s textile industry.
Towndoor say the area will see a major £2m development, including up to 33,000 sq ft of custom-built units.
Dan Bamforth, managing director of Towndoor Ltd, said: “We have invested heavily into our existing portfolio of commercial properties and we are proud of the growth and success of our business over the past few years.
“We have experienced a soar in the number of enquiries and to meet this demand we decided it was time for the company to spread its wings and grow.
“With limited commercial stock on the market and a greater demand for A-grade properties including the latest energy efficient technology, the team are really looking forward to getting involved with the design of this development.”
The new site will feature the latest in technological advancements, including fibre optic broadband connections, Solar PV, LED lighting and fully automated security.
They say its location in a “hub of a commercial business zone” is a key advantage for firms wanting to relocate to the Huddersfield area or even expand.
Towndoor Ltd, based at David Brown Tractors’ former site at Meltham Mills, owns property for rent in Huddersfield and Leeds.
