Global property advisors Colliers International has announced that it will relocate its Leeds based team to new offices within Highcross’ prestigious Broad Gate scheme. The move reflects a key corporate strategy to provide an unparalleled working environment for the team.
Colliers has agreed terms with Highcross to occupy a 5,317 sq ft suite on the fourth floor. A state of the art fit out is underway with a view to Colliers taking occupation next month.
Greg Styles, head of the Leeds office at Colliers International said: “Broad Gate is widely considered to be the best office building in Leeds city centre. It’s a true statement building, ideal for our Leeds team serving clients across the North of England. Many of our Leeds based professionals are also leading some major national client projects. It is particularly fitting considering Colliers International’s leasing and project monitoring role for the original development.”
Broad Gate is a landmark 300,000 sq ft mixed use development located in the heart of Leeds city centre. The award-winning building has 140,000 sq ft of Grade A space, with office suites available from 3,500 sq ft to whole floors of 39,000 sq ft.
Styles continues: “The new space at Broad Gate is designed to drive communications and interaction between team members and departments. The location is exceptional too, providing doorstep access to all that Leeds has to offer.
“Our Leeds team of over 50 people combine to offer unparalleled experience across the entire commercial property remit. This includes development consultancy, retail, office and industrial agency, building consultancy, planning, commercial lease consultancy, licensed and leisure, recreational property, rating, healthcare and corporate restructuring. ”
Richard Pellatt, Director at Highcross added: “This is a great start to the year and follows a successful 2012, when we let more than 27,000 sq ft at Broad Gate, attracting a range of new occupiers including Activision Publishing Inc, Environ and The Consulting Consortium. These deals, together with the success of our new Pure Offices business centre, which is now fully occupied, highlight Broad Gate’s flexibility in providing exceptional, city centre office space for businesses of all sizes.”
