Optimisa moves into the West Riding

Have your say

A LEADING research company has moved into one of Yorkshire’s best known city centre buildings, it was revealed yesterday.

Moorfield Group (Moorfield) and Holbeck Land have completed a letting at West Riding House, in Albion Street, Leeds to Optimisa Research, a company which specialises in conducting research for public, commercial and third-sector clients.

Optimisa Research has taken 5,180 sq ft of space in the 19-storey building on a 10-year lease.

On behalf of the Moorfield Real Estate Fund II, Moorfield acquired West Riding House in February 2011.

Robert Firth, of Holbeck Land, Moorfield’s local joint venture partner for West Riding House, said: “It is an exciting time at West Riding House with a comprehensive refurbishment planned in the coming months and a number of further lettings anticipated in the near future.”

The joint office leasing agents for West Riding House are the Leeds offices of Savills and Jones Lang LaSalle.
