Orega expands flex space portfolio in Leeds

The flexible workspace operator is launching its second office flex space in Leeds City Centre having entered into a new 10-year management agreement to create high quality flexible workspace and tenant amenity offering at Broad Gate in Leeds.

Set to open in Summer 2024, Orega will operate 26,000 sq ft of newly refurbished flexible workspace to provide in the region of 400 workstations on the second floor of the building and will manage the building wide amenity space on that floor.

Broad Gate is a landmark 300,000 sq. ft. mixed use development located in the heart of Leeds city centre owned by NW UK Broadgate Limited and managed by HKIP. It boasts incredible quality of light and an abundance of space, with stunning office suites and four flagship retail units.

Originally built in 1932, the building was restored in 2009 and finished to a high specification throughout, creating modern office space with unique design features such as an impressive double height reception and a full height atrium, overlooked by each of the office floors and crossed by elegant, glazed walkways.

The building has the largest Grade ‘A’ office floor plates in Leeds together with penthouse office suites and flagship retail units, creating a vibrant place to work.

Orega’s new workspace is designed to be a modern, flexible base for the region’s professional and financial businesses, and will offer:

  • A huge amenity rich atrium space available to all building users
  • A diverse range of different design-led working zones and spaces.
  • Technology enabled modern meeting room facilities to facilitate hybrid meetings and working patterns.
  • Industry leading allocation of space per person
  • A large re-modelled communal roof terrace, which can be used for events.
  • Highly impressive end of trip facilities
  • Unlimited barista-quality coffee
  • Generous secure bike and car parking

It is the second flexible workspace that Orega has launched in Leeds. Orega already offers space at St. Paul’s House, 23 Park Square, in Leeds. In addition, it has offices in Liverpool, Newcastle and Manchester in the North of England.

The company now offers flex space from 27 locations across the UK. In 2023 it opened new space in London, Birmingham, Marlow, Newcastle and Aberdeen.

Ben Hutchen, Real Estate Director at Orega commented: “As one of the UK’s big-six regional cities, the demand for high quality flexible space in Leeds is growing and that is reflected in the increase in desk pricing.

“We are excited by the unique opportunity presented by the creation of a high-quality design-led flexible workspace at Broad Gate together with the broader building amenity that it will include. We look forward to working with HKIP and the landlord to deliver a successful operation to the vibrant Leeds market.”
