Full house at city centre office property following latest lease signing

UK recruitment business, Reed, has agreed a lease at Gallery House on The Headrow in Leeds to service a new contract.

This latest deal, secured by the Office Agency team at CBRE in Leeds on behalf of Wilton, means the building is now fully let despite a difficult pandemic climate.

Reed has taken about 8,700 sq ft of office space over three floors at Gallery House, a centrally located, seven-storey multi-tenanted office building which fronts Leeds Art Gallery and Victoria Square.

Fellow tenants include health and beauty retailer Superdrug and BID Services.

Gallery House, which features a newly refurbished reception, is close to Leeds Railway Station and within walking distance of the retail district, including the Trinity Shopping Centre, as well as a range of bars and restaurants on Greek Street, South Parade and East Parade.

Clair McGowan, associate director for CBRE’s Office Agency team in Leeds, said: “Our recent Leeds market briefing revealed provisional office take up figures for quarter three show an improvement on quarter two, so it’s great to complete this deal with Reed and see some green shoots, as well as more confidence in the market despite Covid-19.

“The building is in a great location, is well managed and will be a great base for Reed to service its latest new contract.”
