A commercial site in Leeds city centre is set to be transformed into new offices for the rental market.
Priestley Investments, part of the wider Priestley Group, has acquired 60 Wellington Street in the heart of the city’s business district.
The company’s contracting arm, Priestley Construction, will now carry out a 12-week refurbishment programme on the three-storey building to create 3,845 sq ft of contemporary office space.
The existing interiors will be stripped back and redeveloped into open-plan offices. An industrial feel will be created through exposed brickwork and services.
Nathan Priestley, chief executive officer of the Priestley Group, said: “Thanks to Channel 4’s highly publicised move to the area, there is an opportunity to cement Leeds as one of the UK’s core cities, positioning it as a cost-effective place to do business that equals London and Manchester.
“To achieve this, we need more high quality, commercial units that will make for impressive headquarters. Upon completion, 60 Wellington Street will set the benchmark for luxury offices in Leeds, attracting local and national businesses to the city while encouraging investment.”
