The Leeds office of global property consultancy Knight Frank has brokered a significant letting at The Bourse, a prestigious office and retail complex in Leeds city centre.
Merchandising software solutions company Retail Express has taken 4,290 sq ft on the 1st floor of Bond House, one of the three self-contained buildings which comprise the 50,000 sq ft Bourse.
The Bourse is a landmark building on Boar Lane less than 100 yards from Leeds Station and features 50,000 sq ft of high quality space over three buildings, overlooking a central courtyard.
Each of the buildings, Equity House, Sterling House and Bond House, has its own designated entrance with an NCP multi-storey car park to the rear. The Bourse has undergone a comprehensive multi-million pound refurbishment to provide Grade A offices of the highest standards.
Victoria Harris, senior surveyor with Knight Frank in Leeds, who advised landlords Paloma Capital, said: “We are delighted that a company of the calibre and reputation of Retail Express has taken space at The Bourse. This letting, together with other recent high-profile deals in Leeds city centre, underlines the current strength of the Leeds office market.
“There are currently office suites from 1,258 sq ft to 2,448 sq ft available to lease. Given the high-quality of the space in The Bourse, together with its magnificent location, these offices should prove very popular, especially to up-and-coming creative firms which are starting to thrive in Leeds.”
She added: “The extensive renovation works have transformed The Bourse into a welcoming and attractive environment. Meanwhile the vibrancy of the immediate area, with the new bars and restaurants, as well as the brilliant Trinity Leeds shopping centre, gives occupiers exactly what they want. The Bourse is a hidden gem in the centre of the city.”
Barry Grange, CEO of Retail Express, said: “We are excited to have chosen Leeds and The Bourse as our corporate headquarters to help us deliver the next chapter of our growth story. With a central location for our staff and excellent regional and national links, The Bourse stood out against the competition. The prestigious location offers first-class facilities within the thriving tech hub of Leeds.”
