Hammonds of Hull ‘an incredible opportunity for businesses’

16th Oct

The landlord has confirmed its commitment to breathe a new lease of life into the former House of Fraser store and, following a recent announcement about an artisan food hall, is now seeking businesses to take up space across the basement, ground floor and first-floor levels. Garness Jones will be on hand to offer prospective tenants advice and information about opportunities within the property, and will be encouraging businesses to consider the location. From 1,000 to 60,000 sq ft up for offer, the space would be ideal for any office-based business, with flexible and bespoke office suites and headquarters available. The landlord has committed to supporting customised build and refurbishment. Talks are already under way with several local businesses looking to move into the building. Paul White from Garness Jones said: “We’re thrilled to have partnered with Hammonds of Hull and we’re looking forward to the redevelopment of the much-loved building. We’ll be on the lookut for a whole host of tenants – the space is really flexible, so we’d urge anyone thinking about it to give us a call.” Plans for a European-style food market are set to be operational by spring 2020, with an “Independently Hull” shopping experience to be developed in the basement.
Project lead Jeremy Seymour said: “We’re really proud to bring something different to the city. It’s going to be a completely unique, new kind of space and we know that the people of Hull are going to love it. It’s an incredible opportunity for all types of businesses, from start-ups to the well-established; we can be really flexible with the space, so we really are encouraging everyone to get in touch.”
