ATC Properties has received planning permission to convert the former home of Trio bar/restaurant in Headingley into Grade A offices to be known as “44 North Lane”.
It will be investing in the development which includes consent to add another floor. The main entrance will also be moved to the rear to create large open plan floor plates. A new lift will serve all four floors and there will be shower facilities, bike storage and a drying room on-site.
Mowbray Design Architects has been appointed to design the 7,300 sq ft speculative development, with Design Tonic creating the interior across the four floors.
With completion expected this summer, the building, which has been designed to be bike and electric car friendly will have dedicated car charge points within the car park.
Fox Lloyd Jones and WSB have been appointed as joint agents to market the property, which is available as a whole or in part.
David Barrass, managing director of ATC Properties, said: “With the building occupying such a prominent location in Headingley, it gave us a great opportunity to create an ultramodern workspace to reflect the vibrant and contemporary atmosphere associated with the area.
“The architects and interior designers have produced a fantastic scheme which sets it apart from other buildings in the area. Once complete, we believe it will set a benchmark for other developments in this part of town.”
Nick Salkeld, director of Fox Lloyd Jones, added: “Headingley has been the home of some of the most successful creative businesses in Leeds and it continues to attract companies operating within this sector.
“However, with the rise of digital agencies, many of the buildings are not set up to provide the workspace needed to cater for modern working practices. This has therefore led to a significant amount of interest in the new offices prior to their official launch.”
