New occupants secured for landmark office scheme

CEG has secured a new tenant at Globe Point, a 40,430 sq ft seven-storey office development on Globe Road in the Temple district of Leeds.

Brand design agency, Robot Food, is moving to a 1,848 sq ft suite on the ground floor.

Independent café operator, Butlers, will also officially launch the 65-covers café at the entrance and reception lounge to the building.

Simon Forster, founder and executive creative director at Robot Food, said: “Since moving to Leeds over 10 years ago Holbeck has been our home.

“Globe Point offers us the perfect opportunity to create a contemporary hybrid working space, designed around our needs in the area we love.

“The quality of the build, the workplace amenities and the commitment CEG has for the area is what attracted us, and we can’t wait to occupy this visible ground floor space.”

Olivia McDowell, investment manager at CEG, said: “We are happy to welcome the Robot Food team into the fast-growing business community at Globe Point.

“Designed to set the highest quality benchmark for the Temple district, Globe Point provides contemporary, sustainable space in a landmark building.

“Butlers has for many years provided a fantastic and healthy café bar offer at our Number One Kirkstall Forge development so we are pleased tenants, and the public, will now benefit at Globe Point.

“It will bring vibrancy to the lounge area and I’ve no doubt they will put the event space here to good use as well.”

The new tenant joins Jaywing in the building which will provide a home for more than 400 people.

Globe Point is the first of CEG’s developments to complete within the Temple district. Fox Lloyd Jones and Knight Frank are marketing the building on behalf of CEG.

Nick Salkeld, director at Fox Lloyd Jones, said: “It’s fantastic to add Robot Food to the growing business community at Globe Point.

“They fit the spirit and ethos of the building perfectly, with a vibrant workforce and culture. Their new studio will be unique and sit proudly at the head of the landmark flat iron design.”

Slung Low, which is another new tenant at Temple, began performances earlier this month at its new 131 Water Lane production space.

With learners from CEG’s Forging Futures campus helping to transform the warehouse and yard, the space will see independent artists deliver family-friendly shows from its outdoor stage.
