MRP finishes City Square House

Next to Leeds station, 85% of the 140,000 sq ft delivered by the development arm of McAleer & Rushe has been let ahead of completion.

The completion of City Square House is a key part of the improvement programme around City Square which has seen traffic rerouted around the space.

Tenants to have committed to the building include law firm DLA Piper, SME insurance specialist Markel and professional services consultancy Barnett Waddingham. The doors were thrown open at an event during UKREiiF last week.

City Square House comprises grade A office accommodation over 12 storeys including low carbon credentials, terraces on the fourth, fifth and sixth levels and extensive cycling, electric vehicle and e-bike charging point facilities.

There is currently 5,600 sq ft of office space on the ground floor, with its own private entrance, and 15,900 sq ft on the second floor, still available to lease.

Angus Montieth, development director at MRP, commented: “The practical completion of City Square House is a massive milestone to celebrate. We have created the best-in-class prime office development in Leeds, unrivalled in its location and with sustainability and wellbeing at the heart of its design.

“It boasts an impressive tenant community and we are confident that we will set a new prime rent in Leeds of £40 per sq ft.

“It’s been an amazing journey and a huge collaborative effort to turn the dream of a magnificent Leeds city centre office building into reality. It is the final piece of the City Square regeneration plan and a significant investment and vote of confidence in the city.”

Jonathan O’Neill, senior director at design & build contractor McAleer & Rushe, added: “City Square House has been an exciting, challenging and rewarding project for us. Now this iconic building is completed, we are so proud. There’s no doubt that City Square House is a magnificent addition to the built environment in Leeds city centre and a symbol of the city’s thriving economy.”
