Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Situated within the newly opened impressive city centre greenspace constructed by Leeds City Council at a cost of 2.5m the development plot at 2 Sovereign Square is the remaining development opportunity of three the Council has brought to the market.

In an enviable location next to the newly constructed 1 Sovereign Square, occupied by KMPG, and 3 Sovereign Square, shortly to be occupied by Addleshaw Goddard, the site extends to approximately 1,000sqm with the potential to cantilever at higher levels to create larger floorplates.

The site is a three minute walk to the impressive new south entrance to Leeds railway station, and a three minute walk to Leeds City Centre. Daily there are 32 direct high speed trains to London Kings Cross, the fastest taking only 1 hour 59 minutes. The M1 and M62 can be reached in two minutes.

The surrounding area has been transformed in recent years, particularly with the newly constructed 1 and 3 Sovereign Square, and the Council's construction of the new Sovereign Square green space between. A tall building is encouraged to compliment the neighbouring buildings and a Planning Statement is available to download which provides planning guidance for interested parties.

A sales brochure is also available to download, together with plans, and other photographs of the site and surroundings.

The closing date for the receipt of offers for a long leasehold interest is 12 noon Friday 13 January 2017. An offer form is available to download.
