Marketing firm relocates to ‘iconic’ Leeds riverside location
A firm specialising in customer engagement is the latest business to find its new home in an ‘iconic’ office building in Leeds.
Edit Kin+Carta has agreed to take 7,500 sq ft of office space on the third floor or No.1 Whitehall Riverside as part of its ongoing growth.
Relocating from out-of-town business park Thorpe Park, the firm - formerly known as St Ives Group - hopes to benefit from a central location within the region, joining companies such as Aviva, Grant Thornton, Bond Dickinson, Handelsbanken and Michael Page International.
James Lunn, managing director at Edit Kin + Carta, commented: “Moving into the centre of Leeds, one of the most vibrant and digitally focused cities in the UK, is an important part of our Leeds office growth strategy.
“We’re building an environment that reflects our passion for digital transformation and will be creating a connected, premium and modern office.
Eamon Fox, partner and head of department at global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, who brokered the deal, commented: “[The deal is a] significant move and a ringing endorsement of one of the city’s most prestigious office buildings”.
“It is especially interesting to note that Edit’s move follows hot on the heels of the decision of parcel delivery giant Hermes to open a new 6,500 sq ft tech hub at No.1 Whitehall Riverside, creating 50 new jobs.”
