A Leeds based property company celebrated its 160th anniversary at Leeds Corn Exchange.
Adair Paxton has a turnover of £2 million and aims to increase that by 10% in the next financial year. Wholly owned by seven directors, employing a team of 30, the respected commercial and residential property company has acquired two companies during the last 10 years and will soon announce another.
Director, Simon Dalingwater, said, “Established in 1859, our business has been at the heart of Leeds’s property market for so many years. Leeds Corn Exchange, which is symbolic within the city, opened just four years after our business launched, was the perfect venue to host this significant anniversary celebration, with more than 150 respected members of the region’s property community attending.
“Our firm actually manages the impressive building for its owner, Rushbond, and we were delighted to welcome so many people from our industry to share in our successes in such an impressive setting.”
Adair Paxton also manages residential schemes including Concord Street – a development of 171 apartments in the Northern Quarter. Its estate agency division is also successfully selling 120 of the apartments and has just been appointed to market the newly renovated Spenfield House, with seven contemporary townhouses.
