Wizu signs for sixth Leeds space

The flexible workspace operator has taken the whole of the 10,000 sq ft 55 St Paul’s Street, with post-refurbishment plans for 250 workstations.

Wizu Workspace, which also operates at the Leeming Building, Park Court, Park Place, Richmond House and 32 Park Cross Street, said the deal makes it the largest independent flexible workspace operator in the city.

Wizu also has bases in Sheffield, Harrogate, Bradford and Newcastle – where it last year signed for around 20,000 sq ft at the redeveloped Portland House – as well as Glasgow.

One of the benefits of 55 St Paul’s, said the firm, is that it is one of few central Leeds workspaces offering secure on-site car parking.

WSB Property Consultants represented Wizu on the acquisition and Sanderson Weatherall acted on behalf of landlord Freshwater Group.

The building is set to undergo an extensive refurbishment, where both the interiors and exteriors will be upgraded with Wizu’s house style.

With 250 workstations to be made available across three floors, Wizu said the building is ideal space for those requiring a larger floor, providing ample room for growth and collaboration.

Chief executive Tom Almas said: “We’re thrilled to reveal that we’ll be launching yet another game-changing workspace in central Leeds to attract more leading businesses to the city.

“With the ongoing shift around hybrid working, businesses must offer more than just a space to work; they must provide an inspiring environment that not only attracts talent but also incentivises staff to work collaboratively from the office. 55 St Paul’s Street has been designed with inspiration and flexibility in mind, exemplified by features such as our ‘hybrid-ready’ meeting rooms and high-tech video conferencing.”

“Designed for creative minds, the new workspace will boast uplifting interiors, inspiring meeting rooms, and a vibrant co-working space tailored to bring out your A-game. Surrounded by artisan coffee shops, cafes, and after-work bars, it’s set to be a magnet for top-tier talent seeking an impressive work environment.”
