Bracken Business Centres boosts Leeds Tannery with new lettings
The Tannery

Bracken Business Centres has completed a series of lettings to seven businesses at Leeds’ landmark Tannery office building over the last three months.

The serviced office and traditional lease lettings, totalling more than 10,850 sq ft are on the first, second and third floors of The Tannery – Bracken Business Centres’ headquarters, which the company acquired in a multi-million pound deal in 2016.

The lettings include two companies new to Leeds: domestic appliance spare parts manufacturer, Qualtex, which has taken 1, 862 sq ft, and domiciliary care company, Nurse Plus, is leasing 1,326 sq ft for a new regional office.

Serviced offices allow businesses to move into ‘work-ready’ furnished, office space with the simplicity of a single bill for costs covering business rates, utilities, rental, cleaning, furniture and tea and coffee for the kitchen with no set up costs.

The lettings follow the departure of debt-recovery law firm, BW Legal, which had outgrown available space with an expansion from two staff to 200 since it first took space at The Tannery as a start-up six years ago.

Denise McGeachy, Bracken Business Centres Group Centre Manager, said: “BW Legal’s rapid growth from a start-up to a significant corporate was a model example of the benefits of serviced office support and the flexibility we offer to enable businesses to grow while reducing their risks.

“We are delighted to have re-let the vacated space quickly to seven businesses, including two new to Leeds.”
