Following a major refurbishment and modernisation operation, 28 Bond Court is now open for business.
The site, formerly known as Midland House, was brought by Wilton Developments in September 2010 and has since undergone a radical transformation in order to provide Leeds with a brand new office and retail development.
The six-storey site comprises 15,250 sq ft of Grade A office and retail space and includes a reception, changing rooms, storage areas, a 13 person lift, contemporary toilet facilities and a basement level bicycle rack. The building is also conveniently located close to the railway station and will offer occupiers the opportunity to lease office space in the heart of Leeds City centre.
Wilton Developments Development Manager, James Scott, said:
“We saw a gap in the supply of true high-quality accommodation in Leeds for small to medium sized firms and that is where 28 Bond Court comes into its own.
“We have floor plates of 2,500 sq ft and we can offer occupiers small suites to meet the needs of their business. We have delivered the best in office design, without compromising on quality.”
Tolent Construction was the main contractor on the project and now complete Pudney Shuttleworth will market the ground floor retail space, whilst DTZ and Knight Frank will act as joint letting agent.
DTZ’s Office Agency Team Associate Director, Eamon Fox, said:
“The property delivers individual suites of 1,000 sq ft upwards, which gives occupiers – in particular smaller companies – a quality alternative to expensive serviced accommodation.
“There is no shortage of Grade A accommodation within Leeds City Centre for larger occupiers. However, smaller occupiers are forced to either occupy serviced accommodation or in many cases occupy accommodation that is not reflective of their aspirations.
“28 Bond Court will offer wonderful alternative suites of an exemplary standard in a prime location.”
Pudney Shuttleworth Director, Richard Shuttleworth, added:
“We have set aside the ground floor of the building for retail use and, given current interest, it is envisaged that a high end coffee house or delicatessen will be secured shortly. There is excellent pedestrian footfall past this centrally located building and we are watching with interest as the development takes shape.”
