Property consultant Eddisons has acquired the freehold interest of 17-19 York Place in Leeds on behalf of the Church of England.
The firm’s Leeds-based team acted for the diocese to purchase the freehold of the self-contained, grade A office building on York Place in the city centre from Bilfinger GVA who acted on behalf of LPA Receivers.
The four-storey building, which comprises three Georgian townhouses, provides 17,590 sq ft of prime office accommodation together with 16 spaces in the undercroft car park. Part of the ground floor and first floor are let to property developer Moorgarth and construction consultancy Mace, providing an annual rental income of £82,660.
The remaining 10,000 sq ft of floor area, on the top two floors and part of the ground floor, is vacant and will be occupied by the diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales resource team.
