Urban Logistics REIT has agreed a letting of a prime 64,603 sq ft strategically located warehouse at Sixty2 on Bruntcliffe Way, Morley in Leeds to Aspire Furniture.
The Barnsley based bed maker is expanding into the unit to accommodate the manufacturing arm of its business and is set to create at least 100 jobs in the area over the next three years. CBRE’s Industrial team, joint agent with M1 Agency, secured the letting just weeks after the building’s refurbishment completed.
Aspire Furniture is a specialist manufacturer and distributor of handcrafted beds, mattresses and furniture. The company will occupy the unit, comprising 59,570 sq ft of warehouse space with 5,000 sq ft of high quality, ground floor office accommodation.
Sixty2 is situated within a prime location at the Leeds 27 industrial estate in West Yorkshire and benefits from excellent motorway networks being within 0.7 miles of J27 of the M62 and M621 intersection and just 5 miles from Leeds city centre. Aspire Furniture will join a strong line up of well known local and national occupiers including DHL, Aptar UK, TNT and New Day.
Danielle Raunjak, CBRE’s Industrial team Leeds, said: “This latest letting to expanding Yorkshire business Aspire Furniture in a well positioned warehouse in West Yorkshire is testament to the increasing demand for shed space of this specification and quality.
“This is ideal space to accommodate the company’s growing manufacturing facility and we are delighted to help the business fulfil its growth plans.”
Ben Sawbridge, asset manager, Urban Logistics REIT, said:“It is fantastic for the building to be let so soon following the completion of the refurbishment works which gives us continued confidence in the market. I look forward to seeing Aspire Furniture flourish and grow in their new premises.”
Paul Aspire, CEO, Aspire Furniture, said: “Sixty2 Leeds provides us with a base in which we can expand substantially. Aspire Furniture supply to multiple high profile retailers and sell directly via aspirestore.co.uk, and this move will provide the capacity to power further expansion in the UK and give us the space we need to execute our ambitious export plans.”
