Full House at The Dyeworks


Towndoor, a Huddersfield-based commercial property development and rental company, has secured tenants in advance of completion for all remaining units at Phase 2 of its latest £2.5 million development ‘The Dyeworks’ in Lockwood, Huddersfield.

Towndoor made the decision to purchase and redevelop the 1.2 acre site and derelict former textile mill in 2015 to create much sought after grade A industrial and trade units.

Managing director Dan Bamforth said:

“Undertaking The Dyeworks was a big risk to Towndoor as it was such a large project whereby the former mill needed to be demolished. We are absolutely thrilled that The Dyeworks has attracted blue chip companies and that the risk has paid off as the site is now fully let before completion.”

The units were built using local tradesmen and phase two will be complete in December 2016. Towndoor worked with its clients during the build so each unit has been internally customised to meet their needs.

Splitting the build into two projects, Phase 1 was completed in December 2015 and fully let shortly after. National companies have been attracted to the site such as Screwfix, Taste Card, Peg-Perego and Sytner, making The Dyeworks a hub for modern businesses with trade-style offerings.

Towndoor, which has partnered with Huddersfield Town Football Club this season, own in excess of 1 million square feet of commercial property throughout West Yorkshire.
