Square feet of mixed-used space

Wellington Place’s Grade-A office space in the centre of Leeds is quickly establishing itself as an outstanding new urban quarter and business location of choice for many leading organisations in the north.

Wellington Place, a 22-acre scheme, is a collaborative project between Wates Construction and SES Engineering Services teams; both delivering first rate multipurpose commercial, retail and residential space in the heart of Leeds City Centre.

A vibrant position for Wates in the heart of Leeds

The project incorporates three developments with the first, No.10, completed by the Construction business in 2014. No.6 and No.5 are being delivered in partnership between Wates Construction and SES, and are both due to fully complete in 2016. Subsequently the Wates Construction team is also assigned to the £3m fit-out for global law firm Squire Patton Boggs who will be occupying two floors of the building.

The outcome

Once complete, Wellington Place will feature a vibrant, mixed-use community with around 12,000 people living and working there. It will include approximately 1.5 million square feet of mixed-use space, including offices, residential, retail and leisure, as well as a square in the centre, focused around the listed Railway Lifting Tower dating back to the 1850s, and wide pedestrianised boulevards and avenues. The masterplan at Wellington Place reflects the ongoing growth and confidence displayed in Leeds and across the entire Northern Powerhouse.

"In addition to a solid client relationship, working alongside the SES site team has facilitated looking at the bigger picture of the project."
