A COMPANY which specialises in creating combined workshop and office space across Yorkshire has announced its latest development in Armley is nearing completion.

The Nano Park Company bought a one-acre site off Pickering Street, Armley for £300,000 from the Yorkshire textile company, James Hare, in March 2020.

Bradford-based specialist construction company Percy Pickard Contractors is scheduled to finish building work towards the end of next month – and already one occupier has signed up for 3,730 sq ft of quality office, workshop and industrial space.

Altogether at the Nano Park there will be seven two-storey 1,730 sq ft Nano units and two 2,000 sq ft industrial units. The units will create 50 new and sustainable jobs.

The Nano Park model provides an ideal base for small and fledgling companies and satellite operations for larger firms. The units feature warehousing space on the ground floor, with offices above.

Edward Marshall, a director of the Bradford-based Nano Park Company, said: “The astounding success of our ground-breaking Nano Parks in Bradford and Wakefield, which are completely full, has encouraged us to repeat the model elsewhere in Yorkshire.

He said they were delighted one occupier has already committed to taking a unit before the development is completed.
