Ex-Tuffnells base up for grabs
A 15,000 sq ft office block at Sheffield’s Meadowhall Business Park is available, following the parcel firm’s administration and subsequent sale.
Tuffnells Parcel Express was one of the original occupiers of the multi-million pound refurbished office blocks by ARBA Group, signing in 2017.
The firm went into administration in June and was sold to southern-based Shift, leaving its former South Yorkshire headquarters, known as Block 1 at the site, looking for new tenants.
Block 1 includes ground and first floor office space, has direct access, an entrance lobby and fully separated services, including lift access and showers, and can be split to accommodate suites from 3,750 to 15,000 sq ft. It has an on-site café and has 51 parking spaces assigned to it.
The space is available to let, although a sale would be considered. There is also an on-site cafe.
ARBA Group converted five former council buildings in 2016 into more than 72,000 sq ft of office units on the 3.2 acre site, and has seen longstanding tenants NG Bailey, TATA Steel UK and Preventx Ltd continue at the development for the last seven years.
Richard Burns, director at ARBA Group, said: “The key factor all our tenants cite is the location, as it offers all of the benefits of city-centre office space, without the associated costs, plus great shopping, eating and entertainment facilities on the doorstep.
“There are state of the art meeting rooms, break-out areas and lots of bright, airy spaces.”
Peter Whiteley, partner and head of office at Knight Frank in Sheffield, which is marketing Block 1, added: “The Meadowhall area continues to be a pull for businesses wanting excellent transport links to the city centre and the motorway network, great local facilities, secure parking for staff or visitors, and are suitable for attracting employees from the labour markets in both Sheffield, Rotherham and further afield.”
Meadowhall Business Park is located less than a mile from Junction 34 of the M1, two miles west of Junction 33 of the M1 and within six and 25 miles of the M1/M18 intersection and the M1/M62 intersection respectively.
The shopping centre that is suxh a pull in the area may itself be available, according to reports last month that owners British Land and Norges are looking to find a buyer for Yorkshire’s largest mall.
