The final deal has been brokered at the recently-refurnished Concordia Works in Sovereign Street in Leeds, property consultancy Knight Frank has revealed.

Global digital banking software company Sandstone Technology has taken the 3,035 sq ft first floor of the – which has undergone a £2 million transformation – having relocated from the nearby Prospect House.

This deal means that the 13,922 sq ft five-storey Concordia Works, which was only launched 12 months ago, is now full.

“It is a striking endorsement of this iconic building that it is now completely full,” said Sam Jamieson, of Knight Frank’s office agency team in Leeds.

He added: “In all my time as an office agent in Leeds, I haven’t seen an office building fill up so quickly.”

Richard Lewis, head of projects at Sandstone, said: “Our relocation to Concordia Works supports our rapid expansion in the UK on the back of winning some major deals with bank clients.

“The flexible office space is being fitted-out to our specification by Synchro Projects and will support our Agile software development practices with visual management aids, high-spec communications and plenty of break-out areas.”

This year Concordia Works won a major national honour in the prestigious British Council of Offices (BCO) Awards, when it was named the best new office in the “up to 1,500 sq metres category”, covering corporate, commercial, fit out and refurbished/recycled workplace.

The BCO judges praised it for a “transformative space which has modern businesses in mind, whilst maintaining its existing structure and many original period features”.
