CEG has signed a deal with a blue-chip customer for 24,000 sq ft of space at the flagship Number One Kirkstall Forge development.
The new tenant, who will be unveiled in the New Year, will relocate to all of the second floor and part of the first floor of the 110,000 sq ft building in April 2019. This means the building is now 90% let less than a year after completion.
As a result, CEG has started the design development work for the next 200,000 sq ft of commercial development at the site.
Nick Lee, Development Director of CEG, said:
“We have attracted another well-known national brand to the site, which is testament to the quality of this city centre specification office development.
“It sets the highest standard in contemporary workspace design and maximises its wooded, riverside valley setting. The deal comes swiftly after securing the BCO award as best Commercial Workplace in the UK.”
The building was recently named the best Commercial Workplace in the UK by the British Council of Offices (BCO) and also boasts EPC A and BREEAM Excellent.
The remaining 11,000 sq ft is being offered to the market as ‘Forge Studios;’ Let Ready suites from 500 sq ft through to a self-contained ground floor office of 3,000 sq ft, providing the opportunity for small and medium sized businesses to trade.
