“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 ​adde​d: “This was the ideal building​ ​for Hermes.
