The final touches are being made to the new-look Hull Microfirms Centre, which is relaunching following a £100,000 refurbishment by Tradepark Ltd.
The development, based on the corner of Wincolmlee and Chapman Street, in Hull, has been regenerated with a new exterior, signage, LED floodlights, landscaping and improvements made to the car parking facilities. It has also been redecorated inside.
The site incorporates a mix of workshop and storage units in the main building, along with office units in a second building. Sixty-nine of the 80 units are occupied, with 10 new tenants moving in since Tradepark Ltd purchased the site in May.
Mark Butters, Director at Tradepark Ltd, comments:
“The Hull Microfirms Centre is a unique commercial site and was a thriving hub of start-up businesses back in the 1980s. From joiners and electricians, to upholsterers, furniture restorers and embroiders, there is still a real eclectic mix of tenants at the site. In the office units, there’s a HR consultancy, couriers and a design draughtsman.
“When we purchased the Hull Microfirms Centre, we wanted to bring the development up-to-date. It was previously an infirmary, during the Second World War, before becoming a caravan manufacturing site, then the multi-unit site it is today. We’re delighted with the response to the revamp so far, and look forward to welcoming more tenants.”
