Wellington Place and 4 Wellington Place marks the next stage of that. This phase of the development
will complete the east end of the masterplan, providing our customers, both present and future with the
highest quality working environment available in Leeds.”

Wellington Place and we very much look forward to delivering the latest phase of Leeds’ most ambitious
commercial masterplan.”
