Ethical speciality coffee company Shiloh Coffee Roasters has moved into a 1,400 sq ft ground floor unit in Mill 6 at Mabgate Mills, Leeds 9 in a deal negotiated jointly by Carter Towler and Atkinson Associates.

Shiloh, which was established in 2016 by Jean and Mark Armstrong, sources coffee from sustainable sources worldwide. The company is moving to larger premises in order to open a coffee shop and expand its roasting operation.

Commenting on the move Jean Armstrong of Shiloh said: “Carter Towler and Atkinson Associates have been fantastic to work with they helped us so much with planning permission and dealing with landlord on sorting out the lease. We are thrilled with the new premises at Mabgate and can’t wait to start sharing our coffees with visitors to our new shop.

“We have built up a great following of people who subscribe to our roast and post service but being able to meet our customers and see them tasting our products first hand will take our business to a whole new level. We will be offering tasting sessions and are also looking forward to providing fresh food as Mark has been a chef for 20 years.

“There’s a very vibrant business community here at Mabgate and we feel the time is ripe to add a social element too.”

Commenting on the deal, Carter Towler graduate surveyor Harriet Lawson said: “I’m sure Shiloh’s coffee will prove to be very popular here at Mabgate. Not only will the new location provide a great base for the roasting side of the business but it’s also an excellent location for a café. This part of town is really flourishing now, there are over 30 businesses in the mills alone and of course there are lots of others close by as well as the new Leeds City College Quarry Hill campus which is due to open in September.”

There are a number of offices still available of varying sizes from 280 – 2,032 sq ft.
