Catella APAM (“APAM”), the specialist UK real estate investment manager, has completed a letting at 1 City Square, Leeds to Schroders Personal Wealth, totalling 9,921 sq ft.
1 City Square is arguably the most prominent office in Leeds City Centre, directly opposite Leeds railway station. The building is also home to Deloitte, XPS Pensions Group, Allied Irish Banks and LDC Lloyds. This is the second letting since acquisition in January 2019, which leaves three floors remaining: 1st (9,188 sq ft), 2nd (10,491 sq ft) and 11th (1,248 sq ft). Since acquisition, APAM has refurbished the vacant office space to a high specification and commenced a comprehensive £7.5M refurbishment and remodelling programme which includes a new atrium foyer, business lounge, café and wellbeing facilities.
APAM senior asset manager, Josh Whiteley, commented: “We are proud of the refurbishment and delighted that despite COVID-19, tenants have been attracted to the refurbished building in this prime location in Leeds.”
CBRE and Knight Frank are the agents for 1 City Square.
