Citibase opens second flexible office hub in Leeds city centre13/03/2019
Citibase, The Property Manager for the New Economy, is opening its second centre in the heart of Leeds with the launch of Citibase Leeds Arena Point, which has potential to provide over 12,000 sq ft of flexible and affordable serviced office space. The new hub will offer a vibrant home for over 216 SMEs, start-ups, entrepreneurs and larger corporates based in one of the Northern Powerhouse’s most prominent cities.
Citibase Arena Point is housed in the newly renovated and iconic Arena Point building, which boasts some of the best views across the city. Arena Point is located in the vibrant Arena Quarter, offering world class entertainment and music in addition to the plethora of restaurants, bars, hotels, and leisure facilities. Additionally, the established Merrion Centre and St Johns shopping centres are both a stone’s throw away.
The launch of the flexible officing hub marks Citibase’s second centre in Leeds. Citibase Leeds City Square opened in 2014 and the launch of the new Citibase Leeds Arena Point reflects the region’s appetite for its flexible, fully serviced offices. Leeds is one of the fastest growing business hotspots in the UK, evident by the recent relocation of Channel 4. Additionally, the rate of growth from the city’s SME sector is one of the highest in the country.
The excellent transport links are a major plus for the new centre. Leeds City Station is a short walk away with additional bus routes right outside the building.
Citibase CEO Steve Jude, comments: “A recent study conducted by Hampshire Trust Bank and the Centre for Economics Business Research (CEBR) stated that SMEs in Leeds are set to contribute £7bn to the UK economy by 2025. Citibase is committed to providing these businesses with one of the best flexible office hubs in the city. Teamed with the booming flexible working revolution, demand continues to soar as businesses both large and small increasingly turn to our low-risk, short-term contracts.”
As with Citibase’s other business centres throughout the UK, Citibase Leeds Arena Point will offer suites in various sizes, from one person to much larger spaces, making it ideal for businesses at every stage of their development. The centre also enjoys superfast broadband with a range of internet and telecoms packages, 24-hour access, on-site bicycle parking, meeting rooms as well as a friendly Concierge team offering a variety of business support services.
