Keyland Developments Ltd, the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister-company to Yorkshire Water, has secured planning permission from Leeds City Council to bring forward a 265,000 sq ft scheme.
Keyland has appointed Gent Visick to market the vacant 16-acre site in the Aire Valley area of Leeds.
Situated off Pontefract Lane between the existing Cross Green Industrial Estate and the Leeds City Region (Aire Valley) Enterprise Zone, the site sits between Leeds City Centre and J45 of the M1 motorway, giving access to the M62 motorway as well as a direct link into central Leeds. The area will be accessed directly off the A63 East Leeds Link Road Thornes Farm Roundabout.
Rupert Visick from Industrial Property specialists Gent Visick added; “We’ve received a lot of interest in the site from the moment the planning application was lodged. The Aire Valley has rapidly become a location of regional significance and strategic importance to the distribution and last mile sectors which, when combined with the well documented lack of stock in the area, will see this interest being converted into a sale quickly”.
The site will be extensively remediated as part of the proposals and improved significantly by the provision of intermittent landscaping between the various plots with more significant landscaping featuring towards the south-eastern corner of the site.
