Why Wellington Place will help your business to thrive
Future-proofed office spaces
First impressions matter and few make one as good as Wellington Place. Wide traffic-free boulevards lead you into the estate, where modern office buildings sit side-by-side with landscaped gardens and heritage features.
Inside, our Grade A offices are just as impressive. The award-winning design means they’re both attractive and practical – vast windows flood the space with natural light, flexible floor plans let you make it your own and 10gb ultra-fast broadband keeps you connected. But it’s the little touches – the basement showers & changing rooms and the outdoor chillout spaces – that will transform the employee experience.
By putting people first, we’ve created a place where they want to work, and that’s good for business because it will help you attract and retain staff, which in a market as competitive as tech can make all the difference.
Central to the tech scene
You won’t find a better location anywhere in Leeds. Wellington Place is just 5 minutes from the train station, with direct access to the Inner Ring Road and quick links to the A1, M2 and M62.
The central location puts you right at the heart of the city’s tech community. Your new neighbours will include Google Cloud experts Netpremacy, analytics giant Equifax, global sports betting brand Flutter and critical IT service provider NHS Digital. And that’s just on-site, the thriving Leeds tech scene is home to meet-ups, hack days and panel discussions that will help your team stay at the top of their game.
And, because Wellington Place works with local schools and organisations to promote social mobility, you can help to inspire the next generation of developers, data analysts and project managers.
Partners in sustainability
Sustainability is important – to you, to us, to everybody. So, think of MEPC as your partner – we’re in this together and we’ll do everything we can to help support your sustainability goals.
Wellington Place combines low-carbon design with state-of-the-art, zero-carbon technology to create truly energy-efficient offices. Our latest addition, 11 & 12 Wellington Place, is one of the most sustainable office buildings in the UK. This landmark development is enrolled as a Design for Performance (DfP) Pioneer project to help reduce consumption in operation and set a new standard for future-proof sustainable developments.
But it’s not just the buildings that are sustainable. From electric car charging to free bike hire and secure cycle storage, we’ve made it easy for your business and your employees to embrace a more eco-friendly way of life.
In a world of hybrid working, the office ‘experience’ is more important than ever – and that’s where Wellington Place stands out. It’s more than just an office, it’s a thriving community that supports your work-life balance.
Tower Square, with the iconic Lifting Tower at its heart and free Wifi, offers ample opportunity to escape your desk, while on-site eateries like Sociable Folk, Caffè Nero, Veeno, Mad Frans, Good Luck Club and Hoist House will take you from morning coffees to after-work drinks. And that’s just the beginning. From joining the running club to singing in the choir and trying your hand at beekeeping, Wellington Place brings people together to create real-world connections.
There’s a business benefit here because we’re creating reasons to go to the office. Events, activities and clubs all make the commute worthwhile, so you’ll get added value, and employee satisfaction, right from the start.
Wellness comes as standard
Your employees are your greatest asset. Their knowledge, experience and passion powers growth and drives innovation, so you need to keep them at the top of their game. And Wellington Place can help with that.
Our people-first approach makes wellness a priority. Green spaces, exercise and healthy eating are all proven to reduce brain fatigue and improve productivity, so we’ve built them all into our site. You can tend the community gardens, grab a super-food salad or join one of our free exercise classes. Meanwhile, the outdoor games area and Little Free Library will help you unplug and recharge, ready for a busy afternoon.
In 2019, employees lost an average of 35 days of productivity, so by investing in the physical and mental health of your employees, we can help to build a happier, healthier and more productive workforce.
