Yorkshire property developer builds on 30 years of success

A successful independent property development business is looking forward to marking 30 years in business in 2018 with a lucrative new contract from a national flooring retailer.

It has secured a commercial letting contract with nationwide flooring retailer Flooring Republic, which opened new premises on Regent Street in Leeds city centre. 2018 will see KD Properties help Flooring Republic to establish outlets in 30 new locations across the UK.

Established in 1988 by K Singh, K D Properties is still a family business with clients that include Yorkshire Bank, Farmfoods, Starbucks, Milford Building Services, Leeds City Council and the award-winning Café Sylva in Oakwood.

The business, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2018 has built up a strong portfolio of commercial and residential clients and specialises in professional lettings in north Leeds and Harrogate.

2017 has been a successful year for the business. One of its flagship developments, Café Sylva in Oakwood has won critical acclaim, picking up a raft of awards including being named as a finalist in the commercial build category in the Northern Design Awards. The building was designed by Leeds-based MJF Architects Ltd.

Leeds-based Hentons has helped provide tax and professional business advice to KD Properties.

Harpal Singh, director of KD Properties, said: “This is an exciting time for the business as we commemorate 30 years of operation. We intend to build on our existing spread of commercial and residential properties and look to broaden our remit to include projects all over the UK. It is a service that some of our clients are increasingly looking to from us as they aim to increase their national presence.

“Hentons have provided a consistently professional and reliable service delivering all our tax planning, strategic and finance needs. I particularly like the fact that they are very supportive of entrepreneurial ambition which suits our style of operation. The team has provided long-term, invaluable support during our continued expansion and will hopefully help ensure our 30th year in business is our best yet.”

Simon Gray, a partner at Hentons, said: “KD Properties is a great, progressive business which remains as hungry now as it was when it first started. The management team has ambitious plans for future growth, with some inspiring development plans in the pipeline. We are looking forward to helping them realise these objectives.”
