The Lord Mayor of Leeds officially opened Network Rail’s £1.25 million redevelopment of its Church Walk arches in the Kirkgate area of Leeds last month.
The eight units, which range in size between 903 sq ft to 1,177 sq ft, provide stylish, serviced commercial premises suited to office, retail and leisure uses, ideal for small businesses and start-up companies.
Network Rail worked closely with Leeds City Council to design a scheme which enabled a bright and modern space to be developed while helping to preserve and enhance the local conservation area of Kirkgate.
Simone Bailey, head of commercial estate at Network Rail said:
“As the country’s largest provider of business space, we’re committed to supporting local businesses.
“By investing in our arches we have created these new premises for Leeds in the heart of the city, which will encourage local growth, help drive regeneration and boost the regional economy of Leeds.”
The Lord Mayor of Leeds, Rev’d Councillor Alan Taylor said:
“It is fantastic to be able to see the newly completed arches, and the excellent new space that they provide for businesses.”
