Most recently, Bruntwood has announced the appointment of CBRE and Knight Frank as the joint agency team for the City House redevelopment positioned above Leeds City Train Station. With Bruntwood’s investment into City House is underway, it is anticipated that the project will be completed by May, 2017, with the development providing a complete 119,210 sq ft of versatile space designed with modern enterprise in mind and full floors obtainable of 9,630 sq ft.
The redevelopment itself is essential to the long-term regeneration of the gateway to Leeds and Bruntwood will continue to partner with Network Rail on the redevelopment of the train station in order that, sooner or later, City House might be linked to the station with direct entry onto the concourse itself.
Craig Burrow, Director at Bruntwood, stated: “With work now underway at City House we were keen to secure a strong agency team who could work with us to communicate our vision to future occupiers. It is an incredibly exciting project and we are delighted to welcome our agents on board.”
Alex Hailey, Associate Director of Office Agency for CBRE Leeds, explained: “Bruntwood’s wider vision for the future of workspace is being brought to life in one of the city’s most prominent buildings and we anticipate high levels of interest from a diverse occupier mix.”
Eamon Fox, Partner at Knight Frank, mentioned: “City House is a once in a generation development in Leeds, and will become an exemplary working environment for our target occupiers. Our workplace is central to most of our lives; City House embraces the changing world of workplace and technology to deliver offices and workspace to meet the needs of business today and into the future.”
