Fifth tenant for Globe Point
A further deal has been agreed at CEG’s Leeds office building, where Specialist Computer Centres will take the 4,290 sq ft sixth floor.
SCC is part of the global Rigby Group headed up by Sir Peter Rigby, and will move to the flatiron building next month. The firm will relocate from Wellington Place.
Liam O’Keeffe, asset manager at Rigby Group, said that SCC had undertaken moves across its real estate portfolio in recent years, linked to its sustaibnability commitments: it has refurbished its Birmingham HQ and moved its London City and Bracknell bases.
He said “Globe Point, Leeds is the latest in a series of exciting commitments by SCC” adding that “the South Bank area of Leeds has been utterly transformed over recent years – the Globe Point development, part of the wider Temple Masterplan, has phenomenal environmental credentials, a fantastic contemporary design and is only minutes from Leeds Train Station. Globe Point has provided another progressive acquisition for SCC.”
SCC joins legal practice Reed Smith, which announced its relocation in May, brand design agency Robot Foods, data science company Jaywing and Butlers, which runs the 65-cover ground floor café bar.
As a result, 17,434 sq ft remains at the 40,430 sq ft seven-storey office development.
Knight Frank and Fox Lloyd Jones are marketing the building. Eamon Fox, partner and head of office agency at Knight Frank Leeds agreed the deal with SCC.
He said: “Yet again we have another tenant’s flight to quality, Globe Point is the result of focused design, innovation, appealingly dominate features, truthful expression, thorough to the last detail, and environmentally friendly design.”
Globe Point is the first of CEG’s developments to complete within the Temple district.
