Property company invests in new city centre base
Independent property firm, Adair Paxton, is expanding its Leeds city centre office and moving into new premises in a prime location on Wellington Street.
The new office fronts directly onto Wellington Street and has recently been completely refurbished and new air conditioning, LED lighting and showers installed.
Following completion of the internal fit-out, initially six members of Adair Paxton’s team will be based at the new office, which will open in mid-August 2020 and will be headed by company directors Simon Dalingwater and Nicola Thompson.
The firm’s city centre team specialises in residential and commercial sales and lettings, as well as providing a full range of property and block management services.
Dalingwater said: “Moving to 60 Wellington Street gives us a fantastic shop window directly onto one of the busiest and most sought-after streets in Leeds city centre’s main business district, so it’s an exciting move.
“Its prominent, central and highly accessible location is the perfect base as we continue expanding both our residential and commercial client base, particularly in Leeds city centre, whilst embarking on our next phase of growth.
“This move also demonstrates our belief in Leeds city centre’s property market.
“We have thought long and hard about this investment, given the disruption caused by Covid-19, but the city centre remains a superb place to live, work and enjoy leisure time in, and there’s no doubt the market will overcome and find ways of working through these current challenges.”
Adair Paxton last year celebrated its 160-year anniversary. It has had an office in Leeds city centre throughout that time.
Its previous city centre office was close to Leeds Town Hall, on Oxford Place with a second office on York Place, which followed the acquisition of boutique estate agency firm, Hudson Moody Wass late last year. Both sites will now merge into Wellington Street.
The business manages a wide range of well-known commercial and residential property assets including Leeds Corn Exchange, Thornton’s Arcade, Carlton Mills Trading Estate in Armley and Roundhouse Business Park, on the outskirts of Leeds.
Adair Paxton now employs 35 people, offering a full range of residential and commercial property services, and has additional offices in Horsforth and Adel.
