Zenith is to expand its global headquarters at a new seven-story office development following its acquisition of Contract Vehicle Holdings.

The company, which last year agreed a deal to relocate to the top three floors of Number One Kirkstall Forge, will take an extra 18,500 sq ft floor after making the acquisition earlier this year.

Zenith will now relocate both companies into a total of 63,000 sq ft of space.

Developer CEG will also move its northern office into 10,000 sq ft of the ground floor alongside a new bar/restaurant, meeting and event space which open later this year.

This leaves 32,700 sq ft available over two floors remaining, along with a self-contained ground floor suite of approximately 3,000 sq ft.

Jon Kenny, development director of CEG, said: “The 
commitment from Zenith and the opening of the new railway station have helped to kick-
start Kirkstall Forge’s renaissance.

“At this first flagship office development, we have pushed the benchmark in terms of design, quality, flexibility and 
efficiency, and we have successfully secured one of the 
most significant pre-lets of this nature in Leeds in the last decade.”

CEG is managing the development of the 57-acre Kirkstall Forge scheme which is set to become home to a mixed-use community in a wooded, riverside setting next to a station which opened in June 2016.
