Wizu Workspace signs for 9,500 sq ft at The Leeming Building in Leeds city centre
Wizu Workspace, the serviced office group, has committed to 9,500 sq ft of office space at The Leeming Building in Leeds city centre.
The Leeming Building is a Grade I-Listed office constructed in 1904, which has undergone a refurbishment by owners Freshwater Group.
The building, which sits next to the new Victoria Gate development, has a new interior design drawn on Scandinavian influence. The refurbishment works include a new reception area and communal break-out spaces, LED lighting and air conditioning.
The letting to Wizu Workspace follows a string of deals completed since the completion of Phase One of the scheme in April 2017, with a total of 75% of the space now let or under offer.
Mark Newton, director at TPS, development managers on behalf of Freshwater Group, said: “The latest letting to Wizu Workspace is testament to the unique style and quality of office space that we have been able to create within The Leeming Building, one of Leeds’ true architectural gems.”
John Guggenheim of Wizu Workspace commented: “After an extensive search of the office market The Leeming Building really stood out from the competition as the perfect home for our latest and largest business centre in Leeds.
“As one of the city’s most recognisable landmarks situated in the heart of this vibrant and developing parts of town, it is understandable why the office space is proving so appealing to businesses looking for a stylish, creative working environment”
Tom Almas, Wizu Workspace managing director, added: “SME’s expectations and demands of flexible office space continue to grow and the Leeming Building more than delivers with the high level of fit out, fantastic mix of office sizes, high speed connectivity and hot desks in an iconic Grade 1 listed building”.
