“This means that the centre is now fully let. We are now undertaking refurbishment work at the centre to create new units to meet occupier demand. Meanwhile at Penny Hill, Hunslet, we have completed lease renewals to tenants including Card Factory, Greggs, Fulton Foods and Lloyds Bank, while securing new tenants including St Gemma’s Hospice and Penny Hill Fisheries. We have also relocated the Post Office to a larger unit within the scheme,” explained Robb Smillie, retail and leisure specialist with Opus North.

At Hillsborough Barracks, Opus North has refurbished and re-branded the former Sheffield College space into Barracks House, containing 10,000 sq ft of office space and 3,000 sq ft of ground floor retail space.

“We have subsequently let 6,000 sq ft of the office space to Lightworks Design on a 10-year lease, as well as completing a 10-year lease renewal for the Department of Work and Pensions and Job Centre, for their 14,800 sq ft units at Lancer Court and Cavalry Court. We have also completed new retail lettings and lease renewals to tenants including Extra Care Charity Trust, JoJo’s Tot Spot Café, Parkgate Mobility and Maxim’s Hairdressers,” he added.

Palmer Capital, the minority shareholder in Opus North, provided funding for the original deal from Palmer Capital Development Fund 3 (PCDF3), its €168m (£150m) joint venture with CBRE Global Investment Partners (CBRE GIP).
