Leyton Industrial Village

Leyton Industrial Village (LIV) is one of the established individual trading estates that collectively make up the Argall BID. Situated at the western end of Argall Avenue, LIV houses approximately 85 small and medium-sized business units with around 90% of the units currently being let. The existing units that are empty have been vacated due to the current redevelopment of the site.

The much-anticipated redevelopment comprises 20 new units (16 units will be demolished and rebuilt and 4 new larger “new builds”) that will occupy the current car park space in the centre of the site. Units will range between 835 and 2545 sq. ft. in size to meet the overwhelming local demand for small to medium-sized units. Workspace Group who own the site started the development in September 2012 and expect building works to take six months. Jonathon Dedekind site manager for workspace is confident that the demand for the new units will bring a vibrancy back to restore LIV to its former glory
