Circus grows presence at Leeds’ Tailors Corner

Marketing agency Circus PPC has doubled its space at Boultbee Brooks’ asset, formerly known as Wellington Park House.

Originally home to Hepworth Tailors, the forerunner business to Next, Tailors Corner offers around 25,000 sq ft, around 10,000 sq ft of which is currently available.

Circus now occupies 3,600 sq ft at the building, on the corner of Wellington Street and Thirsk Row. Boultbee Brooks bought the building in 2018.

Victoria Harris of Knight Frank, agent along with Savills and Carter Towler, said: “Tailors Corner has led the way in terms of providing prime office space which has found the perfect balance between creative and corporate, creating an environment that appealed to the market and corporate occupiers at the beginning of the flight to quality movement.

“This movement aims to bring staff back to a new office environment they will enjoy working in, which will help attraction and retention. The roof terrace is a perfect example of added building amenities that play a key role in occupier considerations and its design and style has set a new standard of expectation within Leeds.

“This new deal, which sees Circus PPC doubling its space within Tailors Corners, is a resounding endorsement of Boultbee Brooks’ substantial investment in this very special building,” she added.

Rick Tobin, managing director of Circus PPC, added: “Since we moved into Tailors Corner back in 2022, we’ve seen huge growth in the agency, but we love the office building for its fantastic facilities, working spaces, and location.

“We’re in a prime position in Leeds city centre that we know our team love, and has helped us to recruit further, so taking over a larger space just a couple of floors down made total sense.

“We’re looking forward to putting our stamp on the new office and creating another exciting space that we love to work from and that can assist in facilitating further agency growth ambitions.”

The suite within Tailors Corner that Circus PPC relocated from is already under offer, Knight Frank said.

Harris added: “This iconic building is steeped in history — formerly a fabric and garment warehouse with a state-of-the-art retail space at street level, it’s always been a site for trailblazers and forward-thinkers.

“Set in the hubbub of the city just moments from Leeds station and the new Channel 4 HQ, and with the Cycle Superhighway literally on the doorstep, Tailors Corner is designed as an inspiring modern space where businesses thrive within a community of like-minded people.”

Wellington Park House was originally built in 1881 for Hepworth Tailors but was badly damaged by the Great Fire of Leeds in July 1906. It was subsequently completely rebuilt and continued to be occupied by Hepworths until the 1920s.
