St James Business Park, Knaresborough, fully occupied with eight tenants signed up by Gordons

Friday 13th May 2016

Gordons has successfully advised property developer Marrtree on the letting of all nine units at its St James Business Park in Knaresborough.

The business park is now home to a total of eight tenants including car rental firm Enterprise Rent-a-Car which was the first tenant to secure a unit in January 2014.  Since then, Marrtree has attracted local firms such as Yorkshire Removals, Knaresborough Tyre Services and pet grooming equipment distributors Red Cape, which took two of the nine available units for its operation.

Commenting on the news, Marrtree director William Marshall said: “We have an excellent long-standing relationship with Gordons, and their knowledge of commercial property transactions is second to none.

“Gordons’ pro-active approach meant that the process was as smooth and simple as possible throughout – the team’s expertise in commercial property letting was instrumental in helping us to secure these lettings, and I am confident that our new tenants are as happy with the service as we are.”

St James Business Park is located on the Harrogate Southern Bypass and is part of a mixed retail, car showroom, office and industrial development.  The terrace-style business units at the business park were finished to a very high specification, providing flexible space from 1,678 sq ft.

Gordons’ head of commercial property, Paul Young, who acted for Marrtree in all lettings, said: “We are very happy to have supported Marrtree and are proud that we played our part in ensuring the success of St James Business Park.  To have all units fully let is testament to the quality of the accommodation on offer, and as always we are very happy to have assisted a long-standing client with yet another significant project.”

Established over 60 years ago, Marrtree is a privately owned group of companies run by brothers William and George Marshall based in the north of England.  Marrtree is a residential and commercial property investor and developer with a countrywide portfolio totalling in excess of 600,000 sq. ft.
