Business expansions are helping to drive renewed demand for Leeds’ Marshall’s Mill and Round Foundry estate in Holbeck Urban Village, with two new tenants signing up so far in 2022.
Construction industry quantity surveyors and project managers, EDGE is expanding its national network of offices to include to Leeds, moving into the First Floor South at Marshall’s Court, taking approximately 1,020 sq ft of office space on a three-year lease.
The second letting for Q1 this year was to business coaching and advisory providers The Alternative Board Ltd which has taken 1,743 sq ft of space in Marshall’s Mill first floor on a five-year lease.
Elizabeth Ridler, Knight Frank, one of the joint agents for the scheme along with Creative Space Management, said: “Marshall’s Mill estate continues to be a huge draw for businesses looking to enjoy all the benefits of a modern office space in an established, buzzing yet relaxed neighbourhood within easy walking distance to the city centre.
“Leeds office market is bouncing back and we are seeing more relocations as a result. Choosing a base on the south side of the city centre gives great value for high-quality offices that help to attract and retain staff. This is even more important in a post-pandemic era where office environments have to offer and deliver more for staff who are moving away from WfH or opting for hybrid working. People love working in Holbeck Urban Village.”
Dale Rodgers, Director for EDGE, said: “With existing offices in Nottingham, Sheffield, Birmingham and London, we chose Leeds as our next strategic move to better serve our clients in the North of England and beyond. The decision to take an office in Marshall’s Mill was an easy one for us. Marshall’s Mill is situated in an area that is enjoying a huge amount of investment and development, is in a great location in terms of transport links and has an industrial style that reflects our existing office spaces.”
EDGE was established in 2015 to offer expertise in the core disciplines of cost management, project management and building surveying. Marshall’s Mill Leeds is the fifth office in its growing portfolio and it serves a national client base across 13 sectors including retail, residential, education, health and manufacturing.
There are only limited office spaces available across The Round Foundry and Marshall’s Mill estates, which offers a range of contemporary spaces set in heritage buildings which benefit from great transport links, a lively social aspect, outdoor space and Leeds train station just a short walk away.
