A firm of chartered surveyors with offices in Huddersfield has moved its headquarters into new premises.
Eddisons has relocated its head office to new premises in Leeds from Pennine House on Russell Street – its base for more than 35 years – to Toronto Square, where the firm has agreed a 10-year lease for almost 10,000sq ft of the fourth floor.
Richard Roe, managing director of Eddisons, said: “This is an important move as part of the next phase of the company’s development. The new premises provide an exciting and positive working environment, along with additional space, for our expanding head count.”
Eddisons moved from Pennine House following negotiations with BA Pension Fund, which has plans to redevelop the building for student accommodation.
CBRE and DTZ acted on behalf of property fund manager Highcross, owners of Toronto Square.
Highcross associate director Iain Taylor said: “Toronto Square’s convenient location in the heart of the city’s business district, high quality specification and strong environmental credentials, have been key factors in its appeal to major corporate occupiers.
“Following this latest letting to Eddisons, the building will be more than 70% occupied.”
Elsewhere, Eddisons’ London office, which has recently taken on eight new staff, is moving to larger premises in the City of London and its Bristol office has also completed a move to new offices in Bristol city centre.
