Leeds: 1,000 people ‘could work at City House’

Have your say

AROUND 1,000 people could work inside a famous city centre office building when it re-opens in April 2017, according to the developers behind the scheme.

Developer Bruntwood believes the 14-storey City House, which stands next to Leeds City Station, could accommodate everything from tiny start-up firms to global brands.

Bruntwood also hopes that City House could have direct access to the station.


Bruntwood bought the 120,000 sq ft City House in 2010 and obtained planning permission to redevelop the building, which dates from 1962 and has been empty for some time.

Craig Burrow, a director at Bruntwood in Leeds, told The Yorkshire Evening Post that he believed the building could be occupied by a wide range of businesses. The revamped City House will feature a roof garden, business lounge and meeting space.
