Second phase begins at Yorkshire employment site set to create 400 new jobs
Work has begun on the second phase of a commercial development in West Yorkshire that is set to create hundreds of jobs.
The second phase of Moor Park 25 in Mirfield has now commenced, delivered by Caddick Group and AAA Property Group.
Located near Junction 25 of the M62, the 15-acre site will deliver five industrial buildings, each ranging between 19,500 – 59,000 sq. ft, providing a total 180,000 sq. ft of new logistics and commercial space.
Built out by Caddick Construction, the phase is scheduled for completion by Q3 2021. It is expected that development could create up to 400 new jobs and provide a £12.5m boost to the local economy.
Myles Hartley, managing director of Caddick Developments, commented: “At a time when the industrial and logistics market is going from strength to strength, we’re confident that the second phase of Moor Park 25 will go some way to meeting growing occupier demand.
“Interest in the site is high and talks have already commenced with businesses looking to expand. This major development will provide a significant boost to the local economy and create hundreds of jobs, which will further support the economic recovery of the local area.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with fellow Yorkshire based, AAA Property Group, to deliver this much-needed scheme. This forms part of a wider pipeline of industrial and logistics projects totalling more than 16 million sq ft which Caddick Group will be bringing forward over the coming years.”
Roger Marsh OBE DL, chair of the Leeds City Region LEP and NP11, added: “Located in the heart of one of Leeds City Region Enterprise Zones, this scheme will prove to be highly attractive to businesses and investors looking to relocate to West Yorkshire.
“The Enterprise Zone provides attractive opportunities to support recovery, boost local employment and increase business expansion, offering an unrivalled package of incentives, establishing Leeds City Region as a destination for growth and commercial activity.
“I welcome the completion of the second phase of Moor Park 25, which will further establish this prime location as a leader in industrial and logistics space. It is a huge testament to the appeal and economic importance of the Enterprise Zone in our economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.”
