Prospect Estates has transformed a Leeds gateway site through the delivery of a flagship new facility for leading UK kitchen and joinery specialist, Magnet.

Planning permission was secured from Leeds City Council last year for the creation of a purpose-built Magnet facility on North Street at Sheepscar Interchange following a pre-let deal to the leading retailer.

Castlehouse Construction completed the build contract on time and on budget to create the new facility which, when fit-out is complete, will incorporate a contemporary kitchen showroom, trade counter, warehouse, offices and parking. The showroom was completed for Boxing Day and fit-out work and other outstandings were due to be completed by the end of March. Magnet has relocated from nearby Meanwood Road and the purpose-built facility was designed to provide increased visibility while staying within the locality to retain both staff and trade customers.
