A school specializing in teaching English and recruiting students for higher education has taken up more space in a building in Leeds.
The Leeds office of global property consultancy Knight Frank has brokered a deal with the Elizabeth School of London at Coronet House on Queen Street.
Elizabeth School has doubled its occupancy, taking up an additional 7,105 square feet of office space in the heart of the city’s business district, paying £16 per square foot.
The deal means the 27,215 square foot office building is now fully let, with other occupants including law firm Clarion and Maximus, which deliver the Restart scheme in West Yorkshire.
Knight Frank acts on behalf of the owner, James Hare Ltd.
Victoria Harris, office agency surveyor for global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, said: “Over the past 12 months we have secured deals with Maximus, the Elizabeth School of London and Clarion.”
“The fact that Coronet House is now full is also a graphic example of the rebirth of Leeds’ West End which is once again one of the city’s most thriving areas.
“At the same time, the flurry of transactions here over the past year demonstrates the continued demand for mid-rent properties.
“There have been a lot of comments about how the Covid pandemic has led some occupants to target high-end offices for their staff, but it’s important to remember that mid-size offices still retain their appeal. There has strong tenant demand for quality space on a budget.”
Coronet House’s joint agent is Carter Towler.
