Yorkshire contractor completes £3.2m refurbishment of "iconic" office building

A “major” £3.2m refurbishment of an office building in Leeds has been completed despite the challenges caused by the pandemic.

The One Embankment, an “iconic” office building on Neville Street in Leeds, has seen works completed by local contractor Castlehouse Construction, delivering approximately 50,000 sq ft of office space.

Joint marketing agents JLL and CBRE have also secured a new tenant in the newly renovated building, with financial services company, Interactive Investor, taking 16,000 sq ft in the building.

Castlehouse Construction said that it completed the programme of works despite a “challenging climate” during the pandemic.

Chris Drake, contracts manager at Castlehouse Construction, commented: “We are delighted to hand over the finished building following an extensive revamp to provide premium quality office space to the Leeds market.

“It will appeal to businesses large and small and it’s great to secure a large professional services firm in the new-look building.”

Alex Hailey, director at CBRE Leeds, said: “The renovation of One Embankment really meets current occupier demand for quality office space in a city-centre location and is testament to the pre-let secured to leading financial services company, Interactive Investor. “We are also seeing interest in the other available floors in the building.”

Tony Stott, director of building consultancy at JLL, added: “The successful refurbishment of the building has been delivered in very challenging conditions and credit should be given to the whole team for their dedication and professionalism.”
