Bradford city centre buildings up for auction

Two historic buildings in Bradford city centre are to feature in Pugh’s next property auction, which will be held on 19 October in Leeds.

The landmark property at 111‐117 Sunbridge Road has 8,500 sq ft of vacant retail space over three floors. Close to Nandos, Starbucks and Jurys Inn, the building is being auctioned on behalf of Bradford council, with a guide price of £200,000.

Also in the city centre, Rebecca House on Rebecca Street is a three‐storey former mill building with offices and workshop space over more than 10,000 sq ft. With a guide price of £140,000, Rebecca House is tenanted by Supported Lives Services, which works with people with disabilities, and emissions and air quality specialist Envirocare Technical Consultancy. The property generates an annual rental income of £42,000.

In Shipley, a former Catholic Church on Owlet Road, which was most recently used as a nursery, will also appear in Pugh’s auction. The property has a guide price of £140,000 and covers 3,000 sq ft on a half‐acre site.

Pugh managing director Paul Thompson said: “Large‐scale investment in Bradford, with projects such as Westfield’s Broadway Centre, is boosting confidence in the city and we are seeing an appetite among savvy smaller‐scale property investors from across the UK for value‐for‐money northern projects that will generate good returns.

“There has been plenty of interest ahead of next week’s auction and we look forward to realising substantial sales for our clients.”
