The serviced office group, Wizu Workspace, has committed to a further 7,274 sq ft of office space at The Leeming Building in Leeds city centre.
Wizu will now occupy a total of 16,703 sq ft of space within the building.
The Grade-I listed building, which was constructed in 1904, is located next to the new Victoria Gate development.
Owner Freshwater Group carried out an extensive refurbishment of the Leeming Building, along with development manager TPS.
The refurbishment works include a new reception area and communal break-out spaces, LED lighting and air conditioning.
Tom Almas, managing director of Wizu Workspace, said: “Following on from a successful first year at The Leeming Building and due to an overwhelming amount of demand, we made the decision to commit to further space.
“The extra space we have committed to will allow us to grow our popular coworking offering and provide further office suites to fulfill the high demand. As one of the city’s most recognisable landmarks situated in the heart of this vibrant and developing part of town, it is understandable why the office space is proving so appealing to businesses looking for a stylish, creative working environment,”
Wizu now has over 28,000 sq ft in Leeds city centre across two buildings.
WSB Property Consultants and development manager, TPS represented Freshwater Group on the letting.
Alex Jowett, senior surveyor at WSB Property Consultants, added: “The extra space that Wizu Workspace have committed to within The Leeming Building is testament to the unique style and quality of office space that we have been able to create within one of Leeds’ true architectural gems.”
