Once home to the chattering mills of the Industrial Revolution, Leeds has transformed itself over the past decade to become one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing cities in the UK.
The city is now the third-largest economy outside London and is home to a wide range of specialist sectors including the life sciences, healthcare, technology, finance, insurance and advanced engineering.
These companies have relocated to the city to take advantage of its excellent transport connections, young educated workforce and diverse population. And with more regeneration plans in place, the city is set to grow even more in the future.
As you would expect from one of the UK’s fastest-growing cities, Leeds has a diverse range of serviced offices to suit companies of all sizes. Office space ranges from funky co-working spaces for creative freelancers to large open plan offices capable of housing more than 100 employees.
Serviced offices give fast-growing companies the flexibility they need to grow without having to commit to lengthy contracts or spend thousands on fit-outs and furniture. Serviced offices also offer faster move-in times than traditional office space allowing companies to get up and running quickly.
Here is an overview of the types of serviced office space available in the city:
Serviced Offices Leeds City Centre
Leeds city centre offers the broadest range of office space with facilities available to suit a range of budgets. The area is well served by public transport, with Leeds City station providing connections across the UK including direct services to London, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
Office space in the centre benefits from being close to the financial and legal quarters which are some of the biggest in the UK outside London. Serviced office space includes everything from state-of-the-art purpose-built facilities such as Princess Exchange to converted period buildings such as Prospect House.
Cheap Office Space
One of the great things about the serviced office market in Leeds is the wide choice of facilities available to suit all budgets. The city has a great selection of budget-friendly office space spread across the city. And unlike other cities where the best areas are reserved for the most expensive offices, Leeds has plenty of budget-friendly facilities in the best-connected areas.
One example of a budget-friendly facility situated in the heart of the city is Pinnacle Leeds. This recently refurbished, well-equipped office is located opposite the station entrance, close to the city’s legal and financial quarters. The centre also benefits from being located close to Trinity Leeds shopping centre and a range of bars and restaurants.
Shared Office Space
Leeds also offers dedicated space for freelancers and startups within a range of shared office facilities spread across the city. These are available to suit all budgets and provide great networking opportunities for companies in the bootstrap phase or freelancers seeking to build professional relationships.
One such example is the Leeming Building which provides shared office space suitable for freelancers and startups in all sectors. The facility is located in the beautiful Leeming Building which is one of Leeds’ most impressive period buildings.
