MRP’s City Square House in Leeds is now complete (GB)

MRP’s City Square House, the stunning new 13,006m2 office building next to Leeds Station, speculatively developed by MRP and built by McAleer and Rushe is now complete.


The building’s high-profile tenants are leading global law firm DLA Piper, SME insurance specialist Markel and professional services' consultancy Barnett Waddingham.


Its doors were officially opened last night (Wednesday) at a grand reception with guests including the key partners and occupiers of the iconic development.


The prime workspace comprises Grade A office accommodation over 12 storeys including low carbon credentials, terraces on the 4th, 5th and 6th levels and extensive cycling, electric vehicle and e-bike charging point facilities.


The office space on the ground floor measures approximately 520m2, and the space on the second floor is approximately 1,476m2, both of which are available for 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.”


Jonathan O’Neill, Senior Director at Design & Build contractors 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.”


Eamon Fox, partner and head of office agency at global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, who advises MRP, commented: “It is tremendous to see the completion of this flagship building, which provides a very genuine cause to be optimistic about the commercial property sector in Yorkshire. We expect this strong demand for the best workspace will continue. City Square House is the iconic new office development that the Leeds market has been waiting for. It underlines the fact that Leeds is now one of the most flourishing regional cities, not just in the UK, but in Europe.
