andrew-mear-by-hcm-waterwheelFamily-owned businesses, Eagerlux and San Pedro Properties have been voted as one of Yorkshire’s top three property developers to put commercial space to inspiring use.

The Yorkshire Post’s ‘Excellence in Business Awards 2016’ recognised that the Halifax-based companies had completed some of the most imaginatively repurposed buildings in the region. Examples included Skipton’s medieval High Corn Mill, the town’s historic High Street House and the Old Woollen Mill in Batley.

Said Andrew Mear, md of both Eagerlux and San Pedro Properties which were started by his father and are now run with his brothers:“We were delighted to have been shortlisted from hundreds of entries to the final three. That in itself is an incredible achievement and a recognition of the work we do on properties across West Yorkshire, which we try to redevelop both imaginatively and with the environment very much front of mind.”

The Yorkshire Post awards, which first started in 2006, aim to highlight and celebrate the strength of the region’s business community and are open to firms and companies of all shapes and sizes. Winners were announced at an awards night on November 4.

Eagerlux and San Pedro Properties have a multi-million pound property portfolio in and around Yorkshire, including Skipton’s medieval High Corn Mill which it bought in 1991. Since then the company has made over £2 million worth of investments and improvements to the mill. Earlier this year it acquired it’s latest historic building – High Street House – which is also in Skipton.
