The Leeming Building refurbishment reaches practical completion


Fit out and refurbishment works of the first phase of The Leeming Building have now reached Practical Completion. The iconic Grade I listed building in Leeds has undergone a highly sensitive transformation and now boasts 15,000 sq. ft. of modern comfort cooled space set within a unique environment.

Constructed in 1904 and originally conceived as the trader’s offices for the Leeds City Markets, the building has been sensitively internally re-modelled and renovated into high specification modern workspace. All key features have been retained with the refurbishment bringing back to life one of the great Edwardian buildings in the north of England.

Creative workspace in one of the city’s most precious architectural assets is available in suites of 350 sq. ft. to 4000 sq. ft.

The building is arranged over 4 floors and will provide up to 27,000 sq.ft. of modern workspace in total, designed to complement the significant regeneration in the Kirkgate area of the City. WSB and Sanderson Weatherall are letting agents

Working on behalf of The Freshwater Group, Mark Newton, Director at Development Managers TPS, says: “We have been extremely pleased with the level of interest that the Leeming Building has attracted and with nearly 50% of the overall space in solicitor’s hands this has far exceeded our expectations. Phase 2, which totals approximately 12,000 sq. ft., will be starting on site later this month with 70% of the space already in legals. We are now looking forward to welcoming the first Tenants into the building.”

Completion of the scheme is due in July 2017. Total fit out costs are approximately £3.5m.
