Two commercial units in part of the new £200 million Becketwell development have come onto the market and are looking for occupiers. They are situated at the base of the Condor building, which is a huge new apartment block, containing 259 one and two bedroom flats, currently under construction in Victoria Street.

The two ground floor units are available, sized 2,366 sq ft, about the size of a tennis court, and 4,158 sq. ft, about the size of one-and-a-half tennis courts. They are said to be suitable for a variety of uses including retail, leisure, office and food and beverage service. Although initially it was suggested they would most likely be shops, a number of restaurants and café operators are reported to be interested in them.

One of the units also faces onto what will be a new public square around the corner towards Duckworth Square and will have an opportunity for an external seating area. It should be completed in March 2023. Both units will be ready for occupation when the apartment block is completed at the end of next March.

The £200m Becketwell regeneration scheme is being developed by Leeds-based St James Securities and also includes a £45 million 3,500 seat performance venue and possibly a hotel, grade A offices, multi-storey car park and purpose-built student residential at a future stage.

Russell Rigby, managing director of Rigby and Co, which is handling the commercial units, said: “Having helped put the original deal together on behalf of St James Securities, we have in-depth knowledge of the workings of the site and its enormous benefits and are already in discussions with a number of restaurants, cafés and other retailers who are keen to secure representation in the heart of the city centre.”
