A new business and leisure community in the centre of Middlesbrough is running a competition to find its latest tenant.

Property developer Jomast is looking for a new food and beverage or leisure operator to add to Albert North’s existing offer.

The winning business will be offered a lease of a ground floor unit along Albert Road, of between 750 sq ft and 1,200 sq ft with a generous rent incentive and the opportunity to apply for a £2,000 grant from Middlesbrough Council to assist with fit-out.

The new business will join Mabo Media, Salesfire, Keystage Recruitment and Hays Recruitment on Albert North, as well as new edition vegan café Alkaline Kitchen, the development’s first food and beverage operator.

Budding yoga studios, coffee shops, beauty salons and eateries are encouraged to apply.

Mark Hill, Commercial Property Director at Jomast, said: “Our aim is to bring together passionate people and inspiring businesses into one exciting business community.

“This is a great opportunity for a business to establish itself as a brand in the ever growing community at Albert North.”

Michelle McPhee, City Centre Manager at Middlesbrough Council, added: “The historic quarter and Boho Zone are already home to a host of cutting-edge creative and digital businesses, with Middlesbrough firmly established as a regional centre of excellence.

“Albert North is the latest phase of an ambitious programme of regeneration that is creating a vibrant city centre offer, with first class retail and leisure sectors.

“This competition offers the right business a unique opportunity to play a part in the creation of a prosperous future for Middlesbrough and the wider city region.”
