Leeds prime office transformation complete with new boutique space

The major refurbishment of 2 The Embankment, one of Leeds’s prime Grade A office buildings, has been completed and is ready for immediate occupation.

The prominent building is located on Sovereign Street at the junction with Neville Street, a key gateway to the city centre. The site is a recognised part of the core business district in Leeds city centre and is home to several large corporate occupiers as well as creative businesses.

2 The Embankment, which was once occupied by Yorkshire Water and remains an aspirational address, is now offering suites from between 825 sq.ft to 27,373 sq.ft. with more boutique style space options for small as well as larger businesses.

The upgraded specification includes full raised access floors, suspended ceilings, modern integrated lighting, refurbished lifts, new air conditioning and is complimented with high specification reception and WC’s. A cycle hub, shower facilities and electric vehicle charging points are also provided which complete the modern offer and underlines the buildings green credentials.

The ‘new’ 2 The Embankment has been inspired by the creative scene that epitomises the adjacent ‘Calls’ district and Leeds South Bank. An impressively designed entrance and reception area create a unique impression which is designed to appeal to image conscious businesses where first impressions count.

Eamon Fox, Partner at the Leeds office of Knight Frank, appointed to market the building, said,

“2 The Embankment is recognised as a prime site in the good company of well-known international corporate firms. Due to the space configurations, the building is ideal for the Creative and Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) sectors as well as corporate industries in collaborative enterprise.

“The fact that we can provide high quality suites from just 825 sq ft with private entrance options, riverside views and courtyard space in such a prime city location has proved attractive and we are currently in negotiations with a number of interested occupiers.”

2 The Embankment sits alongside the River Aire and is a few minutes’ walk from Leeds City Train Station and Trinity Leeds. It is a location where most growing businesses aspire to be but are often hurdled by high rents and inflexible terms. 2 The Embankment provides for exemplary quality offices, at the forefront of design and specification, within a price point which makes the property inclusive to a wide range of business.
