Holder & Co advises on 15,000 sq ft office deal for UK’s largest online pharmacy

Pharmacy2U, the UK’s largest online pharmacy, has snapped up 15,770 sq ft of office space at Thorpe Park Leeds.

The business has taken a 10-year lease on the whole of the second and third floors at the upcoming office development Lumina, which is being delivered as part of the £162m phase two of the business park.

Construction of the new building will be completed in September this year.

Holder & Co acted for Pharmacy2U – Owen Holder said “Holder & Co has given valued advice to Pharmacy2U for the last five years culminating in the this latest acquisition role. The brief was simple, find it, negotiate the best possible commercial terms and secure the acquisition – delivering it required market knowledge coupled with legal and technical know how which Holder & Co were able to provide. The result is a going to be a superb new HQ facility for a highly innovative UK company.”

Mark Livingstone, CEO of Pharmacy2U, also said: “We’re using technology to reinvent pharmacy, providing more convenient access to repeat prescription medicine. To do this we use the best facilities to continue to supply award-winning care for our patients, and Thorpe Park is an opportunity to take our offer to the next level.

“We’re proudly a Leeds-based operation and we’re really looking forward to moving 170 employees into the Lumina building at the most convenient opportunity.”
