A refurbishment programme costing £500,000 has been completed at a commercial building in Leeds city centre.
Frank Marshall Estates purchased 6 to 8, York Place 12 months ago and have carried out an extensive programme of works on the listed building, including new ceilings, new carpeting throughout and 3 compartment perimeter trunking.
Edward Marshall of Frank Marshall Estates says: ’We are aware of what commercial tenants in Leeds expect and have invested heavily to make sure the work is carried out in accordance with these requirements.’
The firm has now instructed the Leeds office of Eddisons, who completed the purchase of the Georgian style property on their behalf at the end of last year, to carry out the marketing.
The Grade B office space extends to 15,000 sq ft and comprises a lower ground floor and four upper floors, with accommodation ranging from 340 sq ft up to 2,000 sq ft. There is also secure private parking.
Steven Jones, Associate Director at Eddisons says: ‘This is an exceptional building in the heart of Leeds’ commercial district, providing easy access to the retail quarter and the railway station. With the flexible and competitive terms available I am sure we will see strong interest from a range of tenants.’
Current tenants include Independent Appointments (UK) Ltd and Vanguard Wealth Management.
