Over £1million is being spent to upgrade the famous Albion Court in Leeds city centre.
The 31,400 square foot former Victorian Church of England institute on the corner of Albion Place and Lands Lane was bought by Manchester-based property firm Glenbrook Investments in September last year.
Today, the company is extensively modernizing the offices above the ground floor and the basement.
Glenbrook Investment Director Scott Griffiths said: “Our contractors started on site this week and we are delighted to see all the hard work planning and designing the interior modifications being carried out.
“The ground floor commercial tenants, Pizza Express, Byron Burger and Card Factory will remain as is, but the office reception, basement, all common areas and vacant offices will be completely renovated and modernized. We wanted revealing the building’s features and creating a boutique style that is sympathetic to the architecture and history.I’m happy to say that our talented interior designers have created something very special.
Clem McDowell, Office Agency Manager at Carter Towler, added: “Albion Court has everything a discerning business could want, it is a unique Part II listed property with beautiful neo-Gothic architecture, in a prestigious location in the heart of the city, with a plethora of nearby amenities, excellent transport links and trendy interiors of the highest quality.
“From the tip of its elegant spire to the basement events and exercise space, Albion Court will be one of the finest office offerings in the city.”
Expected completion this fall, two office suites are available ranging from 4,000 to 8,300 square feet. Carter Towler and Lambert Smith Hampton are joint marketing agents for Albion Court.
