Media Centre proving a magnet for growth

Media Centre proving a magnet for growth

Five new companies have taken space at the Round Foundry Media Centre in Holbeck Urban Village (HUV) in Leeds

The Media Centre is currently home to more than 100 creative and digital companies.

Paul Taylor, director of Creative Space Management which acts as both managing and lettings agent on behalf of landlord, the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), said: “The upsurge is partly due to a number of senior staff, formerly employed by larger companies, feeling confident about the opportunities within the market and, as we come out of the downturn, setting-up their own enterprises or new business units.

“The Media Centre is a magnet for high growth companies as the product is designed precisely for this market with its mix of serviced spaces, high-speed internet and flexible letting agreements, creating the perfect conditions for SMEs which are key to boosting the economy in the region.”

An example of this is The Shopper Agency, a specialist shopper marketing company – and part
of the global network The Valley Group, which has moved its team into an office in the
Media Centre.
