Reed Recruitment is to relocate its Leeds office to Highcross’ new Toronto Square scheme in the centre of the city’s financial and legal district.
Highcross has let 6,695 sq ft on the ground floor of Toronto Square to Reed Recruitment, on a ten-year lease at a rent of £24 per sq ft. The letting required planning consent for change of use of the ground floor space, which was handled by Highcross’ agents CB Richard Ellis.
The 90,000 sq ft Toronto Square office scheme was completed last year, following a multi-million re-development and extension programme. First to move into the building, was Zolfo Cooper, which occupies the seventh floor, one of three new glazed floors added to the building.
Following this latest letting, Highcross will be sub-dividing the ground floor to meet Reed’s requirements and create a new office suite of 3,300 sq ft.
Highcross commercial development director, Chris Mills comments: “This is a significant letting, which gives Reed Recruitment a high profile, prestigious location in the centre of Leeds’ business district.”
Agents for Toronto Square are CB Richard Ellis and Knight Frank.
