Transformed former brewing site ‘The Small Mill’ now fully let

The Small Mill, an award-winning converted 19th century brewery warehouse on Chadwick Street, Hunslet has been successfully let.

Acting on behalf of their client Yorkshire Design Group, Carter Towler has secured two new tenants who between them will occupy the entire 17,000 sq ft innovatively remodelled and extended building which was once part of the Tetley complex.

Mental health charity Northpoint has secured a 15-year lease for 10,500 sq ft of space and luxury furniture company Dusk.Com occupy the remaining 6,500 sq ft.

Commenting on the deals, Carter Towler Director Rick Fraser said:

“The Small Mill is an exceptional property and is a fantastic example of Yorkshire Design Group’s commitment to revitalising historical properties for modern use.

“Located adjacent to Leeds Dock, on the fringe of the city centre, these offices not only provide excellent access to all the amenities the South Bank and the city has to offer but also have direct links to the motorway network. It will provide both companies with an excellent base from which to expand their operations.”

Rob Noble of Yorkshire Design Group added:

“We are really pleased to welcome Northpoint and Dusk.Com to The Small Mill. We are proud of the investment we have made in repurposing the mill and its particularly rewarding to see others appreciating all the property has to offer.”

The three-storey brick-built property, including its distinctive steel grain silos, has been sympathetically transformed into highly contemporary offices complete with a roof terrace, meeting rooms, breakout areas, client-focused spaces, showers and cycle storage. The interior features include exposed brick walls, original oak trusses and exposed structural steelwork.

Duncan Pearse, Chief Executive of Northpoint concluded:

“Due to the consistent growth we’ve seen as an organisation over the past few years, we’re thrilled to now expand our services at The Small Mill. This move will further support us in providing good quality mental health provision across the city by improving client experience, as well as creating an environment that promotes the wellbeing of our clients and staff.”
