All of the apartments within the £5m conversion of a former college building in Leeds have been sold to investors and in turn are now being marketed for let.

East Point, which is located on East Street, is just behind another successful residential development, The Gateway, which was converted by developer Fortis and finished earlier this year following a 46 week programme to renovate what was the Leeds College of Technology.

Morgan’s City Living is the agent that is marketing some of the one and two bedroomed apartments and managing director, Jonathan Morgan told City Buzz the building’s modern, sleek finish and city centre location are appealing to tenants who want to enjoy all the benefits of city living.

He said: “East Point is a modern building less than a mile from Leeds station and also within easy reach of the University of Leeds.

“Its stylish interiors, residents’ terrace, cycle storage facilities and off street parking are ticking all the right the boxes with tenants who are looking for an easily accessible and smart city centre home.”

On the market for between £650 and £1,250 per calendar month, the one and two bedroom apartments have attractive veneer floors, contemporary kitchens, fully tiled modern white bathrooms, secure access and CCTV.

Mr Morgan added: “High quality schemes like East Point are highly sought after, as there remains a real lack of supply of new smaller scale apartment buildings in Leeds.

“We are having a very positive response to East Point since taking over the contract from the developer to market the 11 remaining apartments, and have already let five. There are now just six one bedroom apartments and we are confident they will all be let very soon.”
