Commercial property developer Bridge Estates has recently closed on its most significant deal in West Yorkshire with the sale of the College Trade Park in Leeds, valued in excess of £10m.
Bridge Estates chose Leeds-based law firm, Blacks Solicitors LLP, to oversee the deal due to the longstanding partnership and the law firm’s specialist knowledge of and experience in construction, banking, tenancy and investment work.
The commercial property developer and law firm worked closely with surveyor and agent JLL, Lloyds Bank and Stainforth Construction to oversee the acquisition of the site, construction process and completion of the leases and the sale. The first occupiers, including Edmundson Electrical, Selco, Screwfix and Topps Tiles, have recently moved into the site.
Beth Laidler, associate Solicitor at Blacks, led the Commercial Property team throughout the transaction. She said: “We’ve really enjoyed working alongside the team at Bridge Estates and securing its largest deal to date. Using our specialist knowledge we ensured that the entire process from acquisition to sale ran seamlessly. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Bridge Estates and contributing to future successes.”
Paul Crabtree, property director at Bridge Estates, said: “I’m extremely proud that Bridge Estates has recently closed on its most successful deal to date.
“This is a really exciting time for the company and we have some fantastic projects in the pipeline. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Beth and the team at Blacks for ensuring that everything from start to finish was completed as smoothly and simply as possible.”
