In brief: Candelisa
SKIPTON-BASED property developer Candelisa is being aided by law firm Gordons as it looks to create more homes in North Yorkshire.
Gordons has provided advice to Candelisa, which was launched by two architects, on projects including the company’s own office move.
Partner in the commercial property team Simon Mydlowski, advised Candelisa on acquisitions.
Other development’s that Candelisa is working on include Providence Quarter, Skipton Building Society’s former head office which was transformed into 39 apartments, and Caroline House which is being converted into two and three-bed apartments. This site also incorporates Candelisa’s new purpose built office.
Gordons has advised on the proposals for a £2m refurbishment of the former Royd Hill Care Home in Sutton in Craven, as well as the regeneration of Settle’s police station, a listed building which has been empty since 2012.
Candelisa director, Guy Taylor, said: “We have been a client of Gordons for more than five years and always receive a first class service from the team there. Simon is able to advise on many aspects of property acquisition and development, covering off all eventualities, so that deals progress swiftly and efficiently enabling us to focus on getting our projects off the ground.
“In the past we have been very much focused on refurbishment and regeneration projects, whilst this will continue, we are keen to take advantage of the upturn in the property market and introduce our values and philosophies to new-build housing too.”
