Find the perfect commercial property to let in Bradford
You might be surprised to find that Bradford is a bigger city than the likes of Newcastle and Bristol. In fact, it’s the fourth largest metropolitan authority in England with a young and growing population of more than 531,000. Despite the fact that some people believe Bradford to be a ‘forgotten city’ in the north of England, its economy is set to grow by around 25% during the next decade.
Bradford is home to several burgeoning industry ‘clusters’
The city centre of Bradford remains an integral area for employment, with some 33,500 jobs located here, equating to one-in-six vacancies throughout the city. Its city centre has become a prime retail hub too, with the development of the new Broadway Shopping Centre enhancing footfall in the city centre. Within the city centre there is a growing number of industry ‘clusters’ specialising in fields such as digital, IT and financial services.
Bradford’s economic integration with neighbouring Leeds
In terms of its location, Bradford is just a stone’s throw from the neighbouring West Yorkshire city of Leeds. According to Bradford Council, some 46,000 people commute between Bradford and Leeds daily, the largest flow of commuters between any two UK cities. By 2020, Bradford’s economy alone will contribute more than 15% towards the total growth within the Leeds City Region. Looking long-term, Bradford’s economy will benefit greatly from the arrival of phase two of the HS2 rail network, which will improve rail links between West Yorkshire, the Midlands and London immensely.
