The Leeds office of global property consultancy Knight Frank has been appointed to market the stunning Grade II listed St Albions building in the heart of Leeds.
St Albions, which dates back to 1868, is a former Victorian church institute building on the corner of Albion Place and Lands Lane.
Following a £1m-plus refurbishment by Manchester-based owners Glenbrook Investments, the 31,400 sq ft building now offers 4,213-8,464 sq ft of contemporary Grade A office space.
Victoria Harris, associate with Knight Frank in Leeds, commented: “St Albions is one of the most stunning buildings in Leeds city centre. The exterior has always been smart and distinctive, but the recent interior refurbishment has given the whole building a massive boost.
“The refurbishment has seen office reception area, basement, all communal areas and vacant offices comprehensively upgraded. The unique features of the building have now been revealed, creating a contemporary boutique style that is sympathetic to St Albion’s architecture and history.
“Large feature windows illuminate the workspaces and meeting rooms with plenty of natural light, while the patterned brickwork brings real character to the newly refurbished office suites. It is very special, just what the property deserves.
“The immaculate finishes and attention to detail evident throughout the building is showcased within the 4,213 sq ft second floor, which benefits from full fit out, creating ease of entry and the perfect ready to go work-home for an incoming occupier.
“We are thrilled to have been appointed by Glenbrook to market these fantastic offices, which have everything a modern business could want. St. Albions now features four floors of exceptional and adaptable open-plan office space for modern-day business, with 4,213 sq ft available on the second floor and 4,251 sq ft on the third floor.
“And, while the neo-Gothic building is unique, its location is perfect. It is right at the heart of Leeds’ lively retail quarter, surrounded by independents, high street names and luxury brands, providing an abundance of amenities. Everything’s on the doorstep and there’s always something happening.”
The current occupiers of St Albions are Ten10 and Protocol, with the Flat Iron restaurant soon to open within the retail element of the building, further reinforcing the prime location of the property.
