Spencer House Leeds

Zenko Properties appointed to manage a trio of prime city centre developments

An ambitious Leeds based property agency has been appointed to manage three of Leeds city centre’s newest rental developments that have all given historic and character filled city centre buildings a new lease of life.

Zenko Properties is an independently owned sales and lettings agency, which was founded in Leeds city centre in 2015 by Tobias Duczenko and which has recently appointed City Living pioneer, Jonathan Morgan, as a partner. The firm is now the letting and managing agent for Spencer House, Devonshire House and Lambert’s Yard, which total over 50 apartments.

Tobias said: “Spencer House is the third new city centre scheme to join the Zenko portfolio in the past few months. It’s a newly developed scheme on Albion Place made up of 11 studios and one and two bedroom apartments. Located just off Briggate but in a pedestrianised zone, the building is well placed for residents to be able to enjoy easy access to many of the city’s shops, bars and restaurants.

“We have been entrusted by the landlord of Spencer House to take over this building as they were impressed with our recent success at Devonshire House, a scheme of 20 apartments in the heart of Leeds’ financial district on York Place, as well as the 19 apartments that make up Lambert’s Yard on Lower Briggate. Despite competition from other agents for all these schemes, the three landlords saw us as the go-to city living agency and we now have just three apartments remaining across all three developments.”

As well as enjoying highly specified apartments in a listed building in a great location, residents of Devonshire House also have access to the on-site gym and communal roof terrace. Tobias said: “We are currently marketing the last properties here, as well as providing a full hands-off management service for the building owner.”

At Lambert’s House, which is an individual development of 19 apartments on Lower Briggate, Zenko Properties recently let all 10 vacant apartments within just four weeks of being appointed. This followed a strategic investment and management review for the landlord.

Jonathan Morgan added: “In total Zenko Properties currently manages nearly 450 rental properties, and has an impressive reputation in the city centre market for being a reliable and first-rate lettings agent and property manager. We’re firmly focussed on managing our growth this year as we pursue our ambition to become the go to agency for city living in Leeds and we are currently in negotiations with landlords across several other Leeds developments.” 

Zenko Properties also specialises in city centre sales, as well as identifying and acquiring high quality investment properties for its landlord clients and is about to go through a brand refresh as well as opening a brand new city centre office.
