Leeds industrial development set to create 2,000 ‘sustainable’ jobs
A duo of commercial property firms have entered into an agreement to deliver a new Leeds development that could create thousands of jobs.
Sterling Capitol and PLP have signed on to create a new 1000-acre extension of Capitol Park Leeds, which is expected to create 2,000 new and ‘sustainable’ jobs.
Situated by Junction 28 of the M62, Capitol Park Leeds is already occupied by brands such as Barratt Homes, Hermes and NHS Shared Business Services.
An outline planning application for the expansion project is scheduled to be submitted to Leeds City Council next month.
Mike Heydecke, director of Leeds-based Sterling Capitol, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with such an accomplished company as PLP. Their reputation for delivering high-quality and award-winning logistics developments is fully deserved and they are the ideal partner for high-profile projects.
“The Capitol Park site is a crucially important development for south Leeds, creating much-needed jobs and providing a timely boost to the area’s economy.
“The success of Capitol Park Leeds, adjacent to this new site, has proved that the location, just by the M62 and close to Yorkshire’s excellent motorway network, is a winner.”
Keith Wilson, development director of PLP, added: “We are delighted to have entered into an agreement with Sterling Capitol.
“They have a fantastic reputation for delivering large- scale developments and this partnership approach will give us the opportunity to help bring forward some of the best sites in the region.
“We now look forward to developing out new prime industrial and logistics facilities at Capitol Park Leeds and in keeping with PLP’s sustainability commitment, all new speculative buildings here will be delivered to Carbon Net Zero standard which is already proving a key attraction for occupiers.”
