Optimisa moves in
Moorfield Group and Holbeck Land have completed a major letting at West Riding House, Albion Street in Leeds to Optimisa Research, a company specialising in conducting research for public, commercial and third-sector clients. Optimisa Research has taken 5,180 sq ft (481.2 sq m) of space in the 19-storey landmark building on a 10-year lease, close to the asking rent of £16.95 per sq ft (£182.45 per sq m) pre-refurbishment. Optimisa CEO Michelle Norman, said: “We are very excited by the move to West Riding House representing a new era for the business. This iconic building is recognised for its proximity to the commercial district, retail area and main transport links; our move to West Riding House is set to attract clients and staff alike. The panoramic views from the building can’t help but inspire!” On behalf of the Moorfield Real Estate Fund II, Moorfield acquired West Riding House in February 2011.
