This joint venture, led by Hartley Property Group, is restoring the impressive Globe Mills which dominate the picturesque village of Slaithwaite in the Colne Valley.
The canal-side mill 'Globe 1' is now being converted to include Globe Innovation Centre - 54,000 sq ft of incubation space linked to the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre at the University of Huddersfield and supported by Kirklees Council. An artisan food hall, retail, convenience store, medical centre and pharmacy are also proposed.
The 170,000 sq ft development will also provide in 'Globe 2' valuable grow-on space to expanding businesses and entrepreneurs. Focussed on technical and low-carbon businesses, the sheer scale of the project is likely to bring huge regeneration benefits to Slaithwaite, and the emerging 'Sili'Colne Valley.
