i2 Office has taken a lease with leading European property group IVG to take 14,647 sq ft in its Grade A No 1 Leeds property on Whitehall Road in the city centre. The move further expands i2 Offices network of serviced office business centres and represents the firms first presence in Yorkshire.
Philip Grace, CEO of i2 Office, commented: “Leeds represents an important step for i2 Office, expanding our network and increasing our UK geographic coverage. No 1 Leeds fits the i2 Office mould perfectly, offering prestigious premises in a prime city centre location. We are delighted to be working with IVG and are confident that this new centre will be popular with Leeds businesses.”
Elizabeth Ridler, partner with global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, “i2 chose this special building above all others in Leeds because it contains so many desirable, hi-spec features in a bright working environment. The high-quality design and the accessible location are perfect for any occupier looking for efficient space.
“It is also one of the most energy efficient buildings in Leeds with a higher than normal occupational density, so the occupier saves money from the outset,” she added.
Richard Thornton, partner with King Sturge in Leeds, co-marketing agents with Knight Frank, said: “i2s move is a fabulous endorsement of No I Leeds and will provide an invaluable resource with its cafe to future occupiers of the building.
“The location is superb. It is close to Leeds Station and has immediate access to Yorkshires excellent motorway network. There are a number of good quality requirements in the market and it is only a matter of time before the building starts to fill up,” he added.
Knight Frank and King Sturge represented owners IVG while Jones Lang LaSalle advised i2 Office.
