Hillview Real Estate, a regional office investor, has completed the refurbishment of Lawnswood House in Leeds, the largest speculative office refurbishment in the north Leeds market in recent years.
The upgraded property provides 36,394 sq ft of grade A office space with units from 4,351 sq ft. The £3.5m refurb was designed to ensure environmental, local community and occupational considerations were addressed.
Hillview acquired Lawnswood Business Park in December 2018 for Hillview Partners Property Fund II. It is located in north Leeds and provides around 150,000 sq ft of high-quality office accommodation.
Dom Ketteringham, asset manager at Hillview Real Estate, said: “With our design team we have upgraded the dated former offices of HMRC to be a property that meets the needs of modern office occupiers by introducing extensive natural light and creating a flexible office layout so a range of occupiers can benefit from its strategic location within Lawnswood Business Park.
“The refurbishment ensures Lawnswood House provides contemporary workspace in an environmentally conscious manner, which is a strategy our team is rolling out across our regional office portfolio.”
Letting agents for the scheme are Leeds based WSB Property Consultants and JLL
