North West regeneration company Urban Splash has promoted Emily Handslip to commercial lettings director amid a period of growth.
The firm completed 100,000 sq ft of deals in 2016, including significant agreements such as sports brand Fanatics letting 27,500 sq ft of space at Manchester’s Stubbs Mill.
Handslip, who has been with the firm for 10 years working across its property portfolio, was elevated from the position of associate director.
Reflecting on her promotion, she says: “The past decade has been an incredible journey for me and the entire Urban Splash commercial team.
“We’re blessed with managing a variety of interesting, high quality space across the UK; from new and exciting space like Stubbs Mill in Manchester to established favourites like the Tea Factory, we have solutions to fit all businesses whether large corporations or smaller start-ups.
“2016 was a great year for Urban Splash and we are excited about the opportunities that 2017 will bring for the team; Mansion House in Manchester, where we’ve just received planning permission for apartments, cafes, shops and offices, and Smith’s Dock in North Shields, a large mixed use site with our partners Places for People.
“I can’t wait to work on them and our existing portfolio to help more great businesses move to well-designed workspaces.”
