West Yorkshire 'luxury' business club to launch following £450k investment

A new ‘luxury’ serviced office and business members’ club is set to open its doors in West Yorkshire this summer.

After undergoing six months of renovation and £450k investment, the historic Empire House in Slaithwaite is set to launch as a workspace and members’ club later this year.

Dating back to 1892, the 6,000 sq ft building was originally a town hall and most recently served as an office space for fashion exhibition specialist Moda ITE.

Offering 13 offices ranging in size from 1-person to 10-person occupancies, alongside a members’ club with wine and coffee bars, the development has already secured Huddersfield-based housebuilder SB Homes as an anchor tenant.

Local entrepreneur Amy Byram, who is leading the development, commented: “After years of working with some of Yorkshire’s most successful businesses, it is clear that in this modern era, the buying experience plays a pivotal role in the success or failure in securing new business and maintaining key relationships.

“The look; the brand; the space and facilities; Empire House is a scheme which, to our knowledge, is unique in the region. It’s something that you may see in Manchester or Leeds, and we are bringing it to Slaithwaite; one of the most thriving villages of Huddersfield, right on the doorstep of the train station.

“It will attract high-performing, discerning business people, who are looking for far more than a standard office space. It’s an environment for people with great expectations, and we are setting the bar high.”
