The City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council is excited to announce that it intends to redevelop The Tyrls – a former police station site – in the heart of the city centre. This site offers a premier office development opportunity for those investors and developers looking for high value returns.
The site looks onto City Hall and the multi award-winning City Park. It is a neighbour to a National Museum and the Alhambra Theatre – which attracts internationally renowned West End theatre productions – as well as the recently completed Southgate Development, which includes the 117,000 sq.ft. home of Provident Financial, a FTSE 100 company.
One City Park is only 5 minutes walk from the bus and two train stations. It is surrounded by hotels, modern city centre living apartments, as well as the usual restaurants and bars; and with the opening of the Broadway, Westfield’s new shopping development, you can rest assured that this site will be on the top of every developers list.
The Council would be happy to release this freehold site or consider other options from development partners.
One City Park site is also located in the Bradford City Centre Growth Zone; a £35 million initiative set up to support new and existing businesses.
- Business rate rebate up to the value of €200,000 (approx. £160,000*)
- Finance and recruitment support with skills training
- A flexible and responsive planning system tailored to support regeneration projects
- Home to one of the fastest broadband speeds in the UK
- One to one business advisors on hand to support businesses looking to move in or expand
Why everyone's talking about Bradford as the next big thing
Everyone’s looking for the next big development opportunity. Many are now taking a look at the City of Bradford, the Producer City. With close to a billion pounds worth of projects in the regeneration pipeline across the District, it’s a city that no savvy investor or developer can choose to ignore.
This historic location, the centre of the textile revolution, is the UK’s 5th biggest city and has the Yorkshire Dales on its doorstep. It is home to Saltaire, a World Heritage Site, and an internationally renowned University & Business School. It is rich in diversity, with over 100 languages spoken across the District. It doesn’t stop there. Bradford also has a very young, highly motivated potential workforce waiting in the wings. With around a quarter of its population 16 or under, shrewd investors will be quick to capitalise on this powerhouse in the years to come.
With Leeds 25 minutes, Manchester 40 minutes, Birmingham 2 hours and London only 2.5 hours away, you don’t really need an airport. But if you really do want one as part of your plans, then it has that too; Leeds Bradford Airport is only a few minutes away with many international flights flying daily.
If you have a grade “A” commercial office development project in mind and are looking for a city centre location, then this is prime and should be considered.
