Bradford is the UK’s 6th largest City by population and has been the home of my commercial property consultancy, Andrew Idle Associates since 1991.
I decided to start the blog because nothing like it exists at present – there is no commentary on topical commercial property issues of the day.
I was pleased to note the reported sale by auction in spring 2013 of the historic and distinctive Connaught Rooms near to Bradford City Centre. There seems to be a gathering feeling amongst Investors that I come into contact with that Bradford’s commercial property market is turning the corner. Entry prices in many cases are presently at an attractive level for the buyer.
Will the eventual completion of the Westfield Shopping Centre be the catalyst for further recovery of Bradford’s property market? Time will tell, but confidence does seem to be slowly returning.
