Sedulo Group set to launch new office at St Paul’s House in central Leeds
St Paul’s House, a Grade-II listed office building in central Leeds, is set to welcome accountant firm Sedulo Group.
Sedulo Group will occupy 6,534 sq ft of the 65,066 sq ft property, and is expected to move in in March 2018.
The Leeds office of Knight Frank and AWS represented EPIC, the owner of St Paul’s House, in the deal.
Sedulo is a provider of commercial accounting and business consultancy services. The company plans to create a 1920’s themed co-working space modelled after the existing Regency Club at its Manchester headquarters.
As for the move to St Paul’s House, the company that it was “looking for a stunning property, with a great location, where we could mix the old with the new to make a special workplace. We have been voted one of the coolest office spaces in Manchester, and we aim to go one better here in Leeds!”
Sedulo’s Leeds office will feature a 1920’s Great Gatsby bar (serving breakfast and afternoon tea to staff/clients/ corporate partners), meeting rooms with table tennis, a chocolate shop and much more.
Events in the pipeline span from digital and financial seminars to boxing matches and World Cup showings on the office Cinema Screen.
EPIC acquired St Paul’s House in March 2016 with 30% office vacancy. Since the purchase, EPIC has focused on letting the vacant space and improving the communal spaces, adding facilities for cyclists and those wishing to exercise from the office.
The letting to Sedulo brings the available space in the building down to 17%. Agents for the building report significant interest in the remaining two suites, one at 2,814 sq ft and the other at 8,364 sq ft.
Elizabeth Ridler of Knight Frank said: “We are extremely pleased with the level of enthusiasm with which tenants have been approaching us about the space. This interest is a testament to the quality and location of the product.’’
The building is managed by EPAM, a niche property and asset management specialist that offers a premium service to owner investor clients.
