Image released of new west Hull business complex at Priory Park

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 26 Apr 2019

A CGI image has given a glimpse of what a new business complex in Hessle could look like.

The Point, a new development by Allenby Commercial, is the final piece of the jigsaw at Priory Park East.

Offering businesses with a range of spaces, from 5,000 sq.ft. to 50,000 sq.ft, interest is already high in the development.

Henry Boot Developments announced this week it had sold the last remaining plot at Priory Park, completing the transformation of a 150-acre brownfield site into one of Yorkshire’s most successful business parks.

Andrew Allenby, managing director at Allenby Commercial, said: “The Point will offer will consist of high-quality trade counter space or industrial units with large yard areas and car parking in a location just a stone’s throw from the A63 and the main road networks to major UK cities.

“Part of the appeal is Enterprise Zone status which bring the potential for up to five years free of business rates.

“Unlike many other business parks, each space within The Point can be custom designed to offer the most efficient and useable space possible, and it adds up to a great opportunity for inward investment and job creation.”

Venture Business Parks, trading as Allenby Commercial, has already received a number of enquiries about The Point, which will take shape on the 6.45-acre site acquired from Henry Boot Developments at Priory Park East in Hull.

 Mr Allenby said the start of construction of The Point would be dependent on discussions with businesses interested in opening on the site.

Priory Park East opened for business in the early 1990s and has become home to a diverse mix of local, regional and national businesses.

The like of Arco, De Vere Hotels, Indivior and Aldi are all based on the business park, located to the west of Hull city centre and next to the A63.

Allenby Commercial itself occupied premises at Priory Park West before relocating to the Old Town in Hull.

Much of the developer’s focus has been on the city centre in recent years, with a number of significant acquisitions including Worx, Europa House and a former Jobcentre near Hull Minster.

 The company has also blurred the boundaries between commerce and culture by opening the Hideout boutique hotel, revitalising the Victorian retail units in Paragon Arcade and restoring the historic Danish Buildings – supported by the Humber LEP and Northern Powerhouse – for use by creative businesses.

The company’s sites outside the city include The Bloc, a high-quality office development at Anlaby.
