The comprehensive refurbishment of 12 Greek Street, formerly Aquis House, has seen a raft of top-class office space and a new restaurant from the Revere group named Lost & Found.

The seven-storey building extending to just over 15,000 sq ft was bought by London-based investment company Ricsion LLP from Northumberland Estates last year.

Elizabeth Ridler, partner with Knight Frank in Leeds, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded this very prestigious instruction.

“The major refurbishment of 12 Greek Street has totally transformed the building up to Grade A standard to include new windows, perimeter cooling, metal-tiled raised floor, suspended feature lighting and shower facilities.

“The refurbishment work was undertaken by Yorkshire contractors Stainforths. The office floors extend to just over 2,600 sq ft and are available to let as a whole or in part. 

“The target market is professional services/TMT/Fintech sectors and those looking for bright contemporary offices in the heart of Leeds’ professional quarter.”

She added: “The profile of Greek Street is currently being transformed with new bars and restaurants, together with a Dakota hotel opening early next year.

“An exceptional number of amenities are available in the immediate vicinity including Carluccios, Gusto, The Alchemist and All Bar One.

“The building is also located close to Leeds Rail Station and a five-minute walk to the Trinity Shopping Centre.”
