Mercury Quays Makeover in Shipley – last few units available

A former textile mill, Mercury Quays on the canal side in Shipley, has been undergoing a makeover, and several businesses have now moved in – with just a few units left for local small businesses or organisations to snap up.


Purchased by West Yorkshire Commercial Property Firm, Gaunts Ltd, in June 2017 for £1.7m, they have since invested up to £250,000 in fully renovating and refurbishing the 20,000 square feet of space which includes a new attractive main entrance and reception area on the canal side, redecoration throughout, including new wash facilities and kitchen areas, high speed internet, a new heating system, repairs to the roof and drainage systems and improved secure car parking for up to 50 cars.


“We are pleased to help contribute to the regeneration of the Shipley area by improving Mercury Quays” says Managing Director Chris Pratt. “We wanted to create bright, clean, modern, quality space in a historic mill setting, which is attractive but affordable for small businesses to help them grow.”


“Good quality office and work space at a reasonable price is hard to find”, continues Chris. “We have four or five units left (from 400 – 1400 sq ft) and we’re sure that there may be new and developing Shipley enterprises who may need such space and don’t know about Mercury Quays.”
