Hermes scores a hat trick at Capitol'‹ Park
68 Hermes employees will be moving into 1 Sterling Way, with 34 on each floor. Altogether there are now 500 Hermes staff at Capitol Park.
Elizabeth Ridler of joint marketing agents Knight Frank in Leeds, said: “Capitol Park has seen a number of deals during the past year, underlining the resilience of the out-of-town investment and occupational market in Yorkshire.
“There has been some uncertainty in the market, but these deals have underlined that there is still a healthy appetite for well-located and attractive properties at Capitol Park.”
Mike Heydecke, director of Sterling Capitol, said: “Hermes are a very important part of the Capitol Park family and their expansion is a resounding endorsement of Capitol Park itself.
“Their move is also a reflection of the comprehensive refurbishment we have carried out at 1 Sterling Way. Apart from the quality of the modern office space, it has 27 car parking spaces and state-of- the-art LED lighting, which has made the building very attractive. Our imaginative refurbishment has transformed a tired building into quality offices, fit for the 21 st century.”
Richard Thornton, of Leeds-based marketing agents JLL added: “This was the ideal building for Hermes.
“1 Sterling Way is an integral part of the award-winning Capitol Park, developed by Sterling Capitol. Capitol Park is a well-established with neighbouring office occupiers including the NHS, Barratt Homes, Henderson Insurance Brokers, De Puy (Johnson & Johnson) and Ideal Heating."
