Paul Fairhurst, head of Savills Leeds, comments: “Savills Leeds has grown from the founding two members to become a team of 65 over the last 15 years. The office now provides a complete full-service offering, working on many of the region’s key schemes. These include Wellington Place itself, York Central and the recent sale of Pinnacle in the city centre. We are excited to move into our new offices at Wellington Place, the scheme boasts some of the city’s most attractive public realm including the recently completed ‘Tower Square’. The move will provide a real boost to our staff.”
Paul Pavia, Head of Development at MEPC, added: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Savills to the Wellington Place community. We’ve worked very closely with them over the past year as one of our trusted letting agents, and we’re looking forward to continuing the relationship with them now as our customers.
“This marks a major achievement for the development. The fact that experts in the property sector are choosing Wellington Place as their home is a testament to the grade A quality office space we provide and the community we’ve created.”
