Carter Towler has successfully negotiated a prestigious 10 year lease deal on behalf of Reward Finance Group (Reward). Following 12 years of rapid continuous growth across the UK, the alternative finance provider has moved into larger offices at 12 King Street, Leeds.
Commenting on the letting Carter Towler Director Richard Fraser said: “This has been a great deal to be involved with. It’s exciting to be able to assist a progressive Leeds-based company by facilitating its continued growth in this way. This is one of the highest quality office buildings in Leeds city centre with fantastic onsite amenities. I am sure that both Reward and its clients will benefit from all this exceptional property has to offer.”
Reward has taken 3,934 sq ft on the first floor of 12 King Street. The entire building has been extensively refurbished over the past 18 months with other new occupiers including Rothschild & Co and Endless.
Tom Flannery, Non-Executive Chairman of Reward Investments Ltd, added: “We are extremely pleased to have secured these great new offices, they are so much more than traditional office spaces.
“The developers, Opus North and Fiera Real Estate UK, had a vision to create something very different in Leeds and they have certainly achieved it. They have delivered a transformational working environment that meets the needs of a modern business like ours. We have much more flexible work and collaboration spaces and more wellbeing and networking facilities for our employees and clients to enjoy.”
Ryan Unsworth, Joint Managing Director of Opus North, concluded: “We are delighted to welcome Reward to 12 King Street. They are exactly the kind of innovative, achieving business we had in mind when we set about remodelling the property. We wish them all the very best with their continued growth.”
