Offices in Leeds and Sheffield let to Government bodies
Offices in Leeds and Sheffield are set to benefit from public sector occupiers.
The Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission has reportedly taken 60,000 sq ft of office space at a recently refurbished property in Leeds City Office Park, while the Department for Children, Schools and Families has agreed to take offices at St Paul’s Place in Sheffield.
In an interview with Property Week, Richard Thornton of the Leeds office of King Sturge, said:
“Because of the state of the wider economy, while many professional and corporate occupiers are still very reluctant to relocate, the market is largely being underpinned by public sector requirements such as this.”
Leeds City Council is also said to be looking for around 220,000 sq ft of office space in the city centre, in order to consolidate its staff under one roof.
