No.1 Whitehall is the second of five prestigious commercial buildings planned for the Whitehall Riverside site in Leeds. The 128,000 sqft building is arranged with floor plates of a little over 17,000 sqft and offers excellent internal flexibility, provided by the 16.5 m clear span structural grid, allowing total freedom of office space-planning, whether for open plan or cellular accommodation.
The dramatic entrance area ensures minimisation of glare and heat loss to the main office areas and alongside secure underground parking, provision of a cafe and bar facilities has helped secure high occupancy levels. No. 1 Whitehall was substantially pre-let well before practical completion and was sold for two and a half times the construction costs.
