A school specialising in English language courses and recruiting students for higher education has taken more space at a building in Leeds.
The Leeds office of global property consultancy Knight Frank has brokered a deal to the Elizabeth School of London at Coronet House on Queen Street.
The Elizabeth School has doubled its occupation, taking an additional 7,105 sq ft of office space in the heart of the city’s professional quarter, paying £16 per sq ft.
This deal means that the 27, 215 sq ft office building is now fully let, with other occupiers including law firm Clarion and Maximus, who provides the Restart scheme in West Yorkshire.
Knight Frank act on behalf of the landlord, James Hare Ltd.
Victoria Harris, office agency surveyor with global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, said: “Within the last 12 months we have done deals to Maximus, the Elizabeth School of London and Clarion.”
“The fact that Coronet House is now full is also a graphic example of the renaissance of the West End of Leeds which is now once again one of the most flourishing areas of the city.
“At the same time, the flurry of deals here within the last year demonstrates the enduring demand for mid-rent properties.
“There has been a good deal of commentary about how the Covid pandemic has led some occupiers to target high-end offices for their staff, but it is important not to forget that mid-market offices still retain their appeal. There is strong tenant demand for quality space on a budget.”
The Joint agent for Coronet House is Carter Towler.
