Concordia Works developers swoop for prime Leeds offices

Boultbee Brooks, the developers of Concordia Works in Leeds, have bought another iconic building in the city.

The London-based real estate company has just acquired Wellington Park House in an off-market deal from a private vendor, represented by Paul Fox of leading Leeds Surveyors Fox Lloyd Jones.

Mr Fox said: “The vendor had a specific need for an early and confidential sale and the purchaser acted swiftly and expertly, completing the deal within four weeks of first contact.

“We felt the purchaser’s aspirations of quality for the building were in line with my client’s wishes to sympathetically renovate and reinvent a building they had owned for many years.”

The 23,562 sq ft building is situated on the junction of Wellington Street and Thirsk Row, just a two-minute walk away from Leeds Railway Station.

Eamon Fox, partner with global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, who advised Boultbee Brooks on this deal, commented: “This is an extremely exciting development opportunity. Wellington Park House is an historic building in a prime city centre location.

“Developers Boultbee Brooks have already demonstrated their commitment to excellence in Leeds with the stunning refurbishment of Concordia Works in Sovereign Street, which has won a number of prestigious awards.”

He added: “Boultbee Brooks have been looking for a suitable development opportunity now Concordia Works has been completed. And this is it.

“The building will be radically refurbished to provide a solution to the increasing demand for trendy, cutting-edge office space in Leeds.”

“The newest generation of workers expect their office to be an inspiring and enjoyable place to work.  Historically the preserve of technology and media firms, the new ideal office combines collaborative spaces with individual work areas, as well as providing amenities that encourage people to think of work as an extension of home.”
