UK Coaching signs on lease at 2 City Walk in Leeds

UK Coaching, the UK-registered charity leading the development of coaching, has agreed a ten-year lease at 2 City Walk in Leeds.

2 City Walk, located in the South Bank area of Leeds, is a landmark office development providing almost 64,000 sq ft of Grade A office space. UK Coaching has signed for 5,489 sq ft on the first floor.

The deal was secured by office agent Richard Dunn at property consultancy Sanderson Weatherall, who is currently marketing 2 City Walk alongside joint agent Knight Frank, on behalf of Aegon Asset Management.

Commenting on the move, Neil Ashton, Chief Operating Officer at UK Coaching said, “The pandemic has made us all question what is important to us and UK Coaching is no different. Our sector was already becoming more digitally centric and whilst we had started our own journey, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the process.

“The move will, ultimately, stand us in good stead for the future; allowing us to be agile in an ever changing economic and social climate and deliver on our promise of being here for the coach. We look forward to moving into 2 City Walk. The new environment will provide inspiration and promote innovation and will be a fantastic and vibrant new central Leeds base.”

Richard Dunn, head of Agency at Sanderson Weatherall added, “2 City Walk is a superb office building and will provide a great new home for UK Coaching. South Bank, one of the largest regeneration initiatives in the country, has transformed over recent years to become an exciting destination for business and leisure. It’s proximity to the railway station makes 2 City Walk a fantastic base for occupiers who need good connectivity to London and the UK’s major cities.”

Sanderson Weatherall acted on behalf of Aegon Asset Management and R A Real Estate on behalf of UK Coaching. Knight Frank is joint leasing agent on 2 City Walk.
