Opportunity to be ‘Centre Stage’ unveiled at the Majestic
Following completion of development at the Majestic, in Leeds, the last remaining space has been launched by the developers within the transformed landmark.
With the letting of three floors to Channel 4 for its new national headquarters and two floors to legal services business Knights plc, the final space has now been released into the market place.
The space, to be known as Centre Stage, encompasses both the ground and lower ground floor of the Majestic, providing some 17,000 sq ft and a prominent presence onto both Wellington Street, opposite the railway station, and Quebec Street.
Richard Baker, head of leasing at Rushbond, said: “The Majestic is in effect a vertical campus of vibrant and progressive enterprises with the centre stage offering a unique chance to be a part of that special mix.
‘The space provides endless scope with huge flexibility to accommodate a variety of uses, brand-conscious best-in-class workspace across all of its guises, as well as creative and production, showroom and display potential.
“We are looking towards ambitious and dynamic organisations who want to join the Majestic’s community.”
The Majestic’s retained lettings agents are Knight Frank and JLL.
Eamonn Fox, partner at Knight Frank, said: “The volume for the lower ground floor in particular is unparalleled, remembering that in its former life the huge restaurant there catered for some 1,800 people below the cinema’s massive 2,800 seater auditorium.
“The attention to detail and the digital infrastructure embedded into the building are all remarkable.
“Centre Stage provides a particular opportunity for a single operator or a mix including those in the creative and tech sectors to benefit from the ecosystem that is being curated within the Majestic.”
The historic building has been the subject of a comprehensive redevelopment, with Rushbond appointing Sir Robert McAlpine as main contractor.
Works included a full restoration of the exterior, with additional floors created inside, along with a new atrium and Palm Court space.
The Majestic was constructed in 1921 as a ‘super-cinema’, before adopting new leases of life as a bingo hall and then as the Majestyk nightclub.
