Yorkshire property development and investment firm Sterling Capitol is completing the refurbishment of 1 Sterling Court.

Paul Beckett, Head of Development at Sterling Capitol, explained, “This is a rare opportunity to lease a stunning, free-standing contemporary building in such an important location.

“We are already seeing a lot of interest in 1 Sterling Court, as the out-of-town office market in Leeds remains remarkably buoyant.”

Mr Beckett added: “Capitol Park Leeds is one of the brightest success stories of the Yorkshire business park industry and we are very proud of what we have achieved here.

“We recently completed a significant tenancy with Create Fertility and negotiated a new 10 year lease with Ideal Boilers in buildings very close to 1 Sterling Court, underscoring the attractiveness of the park.

“1 Sterling Court has been completely refurbished to the highest specification to provide distinctive and contemporary offices.

“It would be the ideal building for the headquarters of a growing Yorkshire company.

“Alternatively, 3,000 square foot floor plates are available.”

Elizabeth Ridler, partner at global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, which markets 1 Sterling Court, added: ‘1 Sterling Court is in a position at the front of Capitol Park East, with great signage opportunities, overlooking the road A653 towards Leeds and next to the M62.

“It also has 48 secure on-site parking spaces with EV (electric vehicle) charging stations.

“The demand for out-of-town offices remains very strong, with recent figures from the Leeds Office Agents Forum (LOAF) for the first three months of this year revealing that a total of 105,434 square feet of office space out of 31 transactions was traded in Leeds Outer Market.

Ms Ridler added: “We expect further rental growth as new Grade A buildings like 1 Sterling Court are completed and companies put their ESG (environmental, social and governance) requirements at the heart of their property strategies. .”
