Top 10 UK housebuilder, Keepmoat has agreed a deal to let 6,682 sq ft of office space at South Central in Leeds following a comprehensive refurbishment at the green site.  CBRE’s Office Agency team, alongside joint agents Knight Frank, secured the letting at the reimagined workspace close to the White Rose Shopping Centre and imminent new White Rose train station. Keepmoat was represented by Avison Young.

South Central on Global Avenue has undergone a full renovation programme with the landlord, Merkino Limited focusing on improving amenities and sustainability as part of its investment at the site.  With more than 75,300 sq ft of high quality office accommodation, occupiers are now benefiting from a new state-of-the-art gym, shower facilities, business lounge and outdoor meeting space.

Keepmoat has agreed a 10 year deal on a suite within the building which has been thoughtfully designed around themes of wellbeing, interaction and sustainability.

This latest letting is the third deal to complete following the restoration works, with existing tenants Aon and Inseego already in occupation,  The building’s sustainability credentials are much sought after by discerning occupiers, including a gas free environment, electricity sourced from UK based wind and solar farms, EV charging points, EPC A rating, excellent cycle facilities, onsite greenery focused on enabling local wildlife, as well as energy efficient lighting, heating and cooling system, eco toilets, water saving showers and rainwater harvesting.
