Silverstone readies Commercial Street unit for new tenant
A retail space in one of Leeds' busiest streets will soon be attracting prospective tenants after a specialist firm of chartered building surveyors and project managers started work on the building.
Silverstone Building Consultancy is in the process of readying number 7 Commercial Street in the city centre for occupancy, after shoe chain Ecco gave notice.
Silverstone was appointed by landlord Eriah to manage a dilapidations claim and the firm has subsequently been instructed to undertake a refurbishment project which will be complete in the coming weeks. The project is the latest in a long line of recent successes for Silverstone, despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The company, which has a branch in Newcastle upon Tyne and opened an office in Park Square in Leeds city centre in 2018, was also monitoring surveyor on the development of five new industrial units at Barnsley’s Ashroyd Business Park, and worked on behalf of The Hanro Group on the sympathetic restoration of a historic office building on Piccadilly in central York.
Not only that, but the team completed a series of surveys to hangars and offices at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, structural repairs and car park refurbishments at Sheffield’s Meadowhall, and a series of surveys across a UK-wide portfolio of 20 properties on behalf of Mapeley Estates.
Ben Rennocks, director at Silverstone in Leeds said: “We are pleased to be working on this prominent city centre retail unit to refresh the premises and ultimately assist the landlord in securing a new tenant for the vacant space.
“Our team is doing well in very challenging times, having confirmed a significant number of instructions throughout Yorkshire and beyond for 2021.”
In the North East region, the firm recently completed a £15m bespoke design and build manufacturing facility, and a new fulfilment centre for a growing retailer, as well as the refurbishment of a major car parts manufacturing plant.
7 Commercial Street is a 2,115 sq ft retail property which is on the market to let through Leeds-based Central Retail.
