Urban Splash celebrates successful start to the year, already concluding 55,000 sq ft of deals
Award winning regeneration company Urban Splash has completed deals on more than 55,000 sq ft of space across its national portfolio in the past three months. It has welcomed a host of new and interesting businesses into its developments – as well as retaining existing tenants.
In its North West home territory, the company has secured 13,978 sq ft of deals; at the Boat Shed in Salford Quays, the company has completed 3,426 sq ft, welcoming travel group Black Opal, card payment company Goodbox and cycle training business Bikeright! Limited. In central Manchester, more than 11,000 sq ft of deals have crossed the line at Beehive Mill – including a deal with the Prince’s Trust.
In Liverpool meanwhile, the Tea Factory, which was refurbished last year to include common spaces and high spec communal areas, has become home to Football Radar, with the sports data company taking in excess of 4,000 sq ft.
At the Matchworks in South Liverpool, a development in which Urban Splash is currently investing a six-figure sum to add new tenant amenities, tenants Dermaplane UK and North West Air Ambulance have collectively taken almost 6,000 sq ft of space.
Speaking of the deals, commercial director Emily Handslip, said: “We are immensely proud of the huge range of businesses that come to an Urban Splash space each day to innovate and create. Our new tenants perfectly demonstrate how we can provide a great base for not only for the larger, more established businesses within the region but also the entrepreneurs and start-ups that benefit from working in a community of like-minded people.
“We thank all of our tenants from Manchester to Liverpool and beyond that make each of our schemes such positive and vibrant places and we are excited about the many new opportunities that 2019 continues to bring.”
Meanwhile, outside of the company’s North West deals, almost 30,000 sq ft of space has been let at the company’s Royal William Yard development in Plymouth; 8,900 sq ft was taken by boutique cinema operator Everyman, with a further deal completed with the South West Coast Path Association taking space within the scheme’s Residence Two building.
