Greek Street deals completed after £2m refurb

A trio of deals has been completed at the newly-refurbished 12 Greek Street in Leeds.

Formerly Aquis House, the site underwent a £2m refurbishment to create Grade A office space in the city following its acquisition by London-based investment company Ricsion from Northumberland Estates in 2015.

Now, three companies are moving in. Newcomers include ECSC, the cyber security firm which announced its floatation earlier this year, building consultancy Troup Bywaters + Anders and Pegasus Agriculture. They have taken a total of 3,257 sq ft.

Elizabeth Ridler, partner with Knight Frank in Leeds, commented: “We are delighted to be able to announce these three lettings. They are a superb endorsement of the quality of the refurbishment which has created a truly sought-after product in a size bracket that is traditionally characterised by inferior accommodation.

“It’s modern, fashionable aesthetic sets it apart from its competitors. The new occupiers will enjoy a building which enhances, encourages and rewards the hard work of employees, offering a wonderful office environment to meet, entertain and develop ideas with clients”, she said.

Sam Jamieson of Knight Frank added: “The stunning transformation of 12 Greek Street has brought the building up to Grade A office standard and will capitalise on the demand for high-quality stock in the city. The superb refurbishment comes at a time when the immediate area is being transformed with new bars and restaurants, together with the Dakota hotel. An exceptional number of amenities are now available in the vicinity.

Phil Shopland-Reed of Carter Towler said: “Pegasus Agriculture loved the clean lines and modern feel to the offices which will provide an attractive environment for the company. The provision of small power and plug-and-play data were also a large draw of the building.”

12 Greek Street has also received a boost with the opening of The Lost & Found restaurant on the ground floor, part of the Revere Pub Company, which is a division of Marstons PLC.
