Mark Finch, director at Rushbond, said: “As the contractor moves towards completion, the building is changing every day – and we begin to move from concept visuals to proper photography!

“This final batch of CGIs not only portrays how the new contemporary additions will sit within the historic fabric of the building, but also looks at ways in which the interior floors could be configured and designed, as inspiration for potential occupiers.

“The contrast of new and old is serving to create a captivating space which will be a fitting home for exciting, forward-thinking businesses in Leeds, unlike anything else currently on the market.

“Interest in the remaining floors, from the super-height lower ground through to the third, continues to be strong as we move towards spring.”
