Sculpture Marks Hiscox’ Arrival At Highcross’ Toronto Square

January 18, 2012

 

Highcross has let 3,328 sq ft at its Toronto Square office scheme in Leeds to international specialist insurer, Hiscox.

The company, which has taken the ground-floor suite on a five-year lease, has relocated its Leeds office, which employs around twenty staff. Toronto Square, which is sited in the city’s legal and financial district, has attracted eight new companies, taking more than 30,000 sq ft in total, during the past year.

To mark its arrival at Toronto Square, Hiscox installed a sculpture from its own extensive modern art collection at the office scheme. The Pitchfork, a three-meter high, tubular steel sculpture by Michael Craig-Martin, is on show in the Toronto Square courtyard.

The 90,000 sq ft Toronto Square office building provides high specification, flexible office space, with the added benefit of award-winning environmental credentials.

Highcross Senior Asset Manager, Iain Taylor comments: “Hiscox is the latest in a series of companies which have decided to relocate their Leeds’ offices to Toronto Square over recent months. We are very pleased to welcome the company to the building and delighted that they have marked their arrival with the installation of this spectacular sculpture.”

Agents for Toronto Square are CB Richard Ellis and Knight Frank.
