CEG has appointed DP Design to transform 84 Albion Street in the heart of Leeds, providing a range of studio space for start-ups and smaller businesses.
Five Let Ready Studios are being created, offering fully furnished workspace for teams of 4 to 24 people.
When completed in July, they will enable a company to move in, plug in and start work immediately.
The Let Ready studios have been a phenomenal success at our nearby Kirkstall Forge development and Westminster Place in York,” said Robert Morton, Investment Manager at CEG.
“By including this type of workspace at Albion Street we can complement our out-of-town offer with a prestigious city centre address, just a stone’s throw from the station.
“Let Ready Go is perfect for start-ups, as well as established businesses wanting a regional base or extra fully-furnished project space with easy in/out leases.”
The offer is designed to provide a post-COVID solution to businesses needing easy-in, easy-out flexible leases with the ability to grow and contract on-site.
As well as a great city centre location close to amenities, businesses will be part of a thriving business community and have access to contemporary break-out space and dedicated meeting rooms.
Fox Lloyd Jones and WSB Property Consultants are appointed as agents marketing Albion Street on CEG’s behalf.
Nick Salkeld, Director at Fox Lloyd Jones, said: “We continue to see workspace strategies evolve following the pandemic, with occupiers more often seeking increased flexibility and fully furnished solutions to minimise capex requirements.
“CEG’s Let Ready model ticks these boxes and importantly bridges the gap between traditional leased space and serviced offices, with the suites benefitting from their own kitchen and meeting rooms on easy in / out all-inclusive terms.”
