High-quality office space at one of the most sought-after addresses in Leeds has been launched.

Potential occupiers have the chance to share a building with high-profile companies such as Sky, the Yorkshire Post, Engie (formerly GDF Suez) and International Personal Finance.

Global property consultancy Knight Frank has announced that 15,600 sq ft of Grade A office space at 26 Whitehall is now available to lease. The quoted rent is £30 per sq ft.

The Leeds office agency team of Knight Frank, led by partner Eamon Fox, is marketing this space on the seventh floor of this flagship 120,000 sq ft building, which is owned by Credit Suisse. The rest of the building is full.

Eamon explained that the building provided the perfect post-pandemic office space, with the emphasis on smart and spacious design, comfort, collaborative areas and first-class facilities.

He commented: “26 Whitehall features a fully fitted workspace solution with 201 desks, six meeting rooms, a fitted kitchen, LCD TVs etc. The desks and furniture on the seventh floor ensure this is a wonderful place to work, helping a potential occupier to attract and retain the best talent in Leeds.

Eamon commented: “26 Whitehall is one of the finest office buildings in the city. It already boasts some high-profile occupiers, including Yorkshire Post Newspapers, energy company Engie, Sky, IPF and marketing agency CreativeRace.

“These occupiers underpin the quality of 26 Whitehall Road and its excellent location. It has an enviable combination of low running costs, high-tech features, quality design and superb office space. It is also one of the most energy efficient buildings in Leeds.

“Designed by multi-award winning architects Allies and Morrison, 26 Whitehall is one of the most beautiful and unique buildings in Leeds, known by many due to its enviable position, welcoming commuters as they approach Leeds train station. The building is superbly located between Leeds’ key commercial quarter and emerging creative hubs, with the benefit of a beautiful canal side setting offering both running and cycling routes.

“26 Whitehall offers a first-class, pain-free solution, this means that all a prospective customer needs to move in, is their staff, milk, tea, coffee and IT equipment. We have created this solution with ease of entry in mind, ensuring a new occupier can simply move in and start working.

“Immersed within the excitement of Leeds’ fast-moving West End, home to a cocktail of creatives, corporates and rapidly evolving start-ups; Whitehall Road is the location of choice for a diverse community of businesses, retailers and residents,” said Eamon.
