Works begin on £3.2 refurb on iconic Leeds offices

Castlehouse Construction has begun work on the major £3.2 million refurbishment of office building One Embankment on Neville Street in Leeds.

The Leeds-based construction company were instructed by JLL Leeds, who are acting on behalf of clients LaSalle Investment Management.

The company has now started on site on the 40-week refurbishment programme of circa 50,000 sq ft of office space to deliver 6 floors of Grade A accommodation.

The development will also include on-site parking for 46 cars and a unique ground floor business lounge which will add significant amenity and attraction to the building.

The repositioning of this landmark building, which has been vacant since 2015, will significantly contribute to Leeds’ office supply market.

Leasing agents JLL and CBRE are speaking with potential occupiers in advance of completion of works next summer.

“With restricted supply of first class office space in the Leeds market, when complete the newly refurbished building will offer high quality workspace for businesses of all sizes and will most certainly boost the Leeds pipeline,” said Richard Lumley, Chairman of Castlehouse Construction.
