Specialist PPC marketing agency Circus PPC has doubled its space at Tailors Corner, the iconic central Leeds building which was originally the home of Hepworth Tailors.

Circus now occupies 3,600 sq ft in the 25,000 sq ft building, which features some of the finest flexible Grade A office space in the city.

Tailors Corner, formerly known as Wellington Park House, was bought by award-winning property developers Boultbee Brooks in 2018. It is situated on the corner of Wellington Street and Thirsk Row.

Victoria Harris of global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, who are marketing Tailors Corner, commented: “Tailors Corner has led the way in terms of providing prime office space which has found the perfect balance between creative and corporate, creating an environment that appealed to the market and corporate occupiers at the beginning of the flight to quality movement.

“This movement aims to bring staff back to a new office environment they will enjoy working in, which will help attraction and retention. The roof terrace is a perfect example of added building amenities that play a key role in occupier considerations and its design and style has set a new standard of expectation within Leeds.

“This new deal, which sees Circus PPC doubling its space within Tailors Corners, is a resounding endorsement of Boultbee Brooks’ substantial investment in this very special building,” she added.

Rick Tobin, managing director of Circus PPC commented: “Since we moved into Tailors Corner back in 2022, we’ve seen huge growth in the agency, but we love the office building for its fantastic facilities, working spaces, and location. We’re in a prime position in Leeds city centre that we know our team love, and has helped us to recruit further, so taking over a larger space just a couple of floors down made total sense.

“We’re looking forward to putting our stamp on the new office and creating another exciting space that we love to work from and that can assist in facilitating further agency growth ambitions.”

Set over seven floors, there is currently just over 10,000 sq ft available to lease, with suites ranging from 1,500 sq ft to 5,001 sq ft. All suites are available for immediate occupation. The suite within Tailors Corner that Circus PPC relocated from is already under offer, proving the popularity of the development.

Victoria added: “This iconic building is steeped in history — formerly a fabric and garment warehouse with a state-of-the-art retail space at street level, it’s always been a site for trailblazers and forward-thinkers.
“Set in the hubbub of the city just moments from Leeds station and the new Channel 4 HQ, and with the Cycle Superhighway literally on the doorstep, Tailors Corner is designed as an inspiring modern space where businesses thrive within a community of like-minded people.”

Wellington Park House was originally built in 1881 for Hepworth Tailors but was badly damaged by the Great Fire of Leeds in July 1906. It was subsequently completely rebuilt and continued to be occupied by Hepworths, the forerunners of Next, until the 1920s

The joint marketing agent for Tailors Corner, alongside Knight Frank, is the Leeds office of Savills and Carter Towler.
