Law firm confirms major office move

Walker Morris is to relocate to 33 Wellington Street in Leeds – a move that will be the largest professional services relocation in the city for almost 15 years.

The building, Benson House, is undergoing a comprehensive £10m refurbishment to provide a premium working environment for Walker Morris with significantly improved sustainability credentials.

Walker Morris, which was advised by specialist property consultancy Fox Lloyd Jones, will move from its current locations split across two buildings on King Street into 76,000 sq. ft. of fully renovated, Grade A office space at the heart of the Leeds business district in summer 2019.

Once complete, the relocation will see all 500 of Walker Morris’ staff together under one roof, underlining the Firm’s position as the largest single site law firm outside London.

The property, which was bought by Knight Frank Investment Management for Lancashire County Council Pension Fund from MEPC in 2010 for £20m, was occupied by PwC for 20 years before moving to new headquarters in the city at Central Square in October 2016.

Construction work on the Wellington Street property has started through appointed contractor GMi Construction and it is expected that building will be handed over to Walker Morris for internal fit-out in early 2019.

I like how much they are clearing away & cleaning remaining bits of the white facade/panelling on the ground floor & walkways. Always thought it just needed someone with a pressure washer to give it a good clean.

Overall to me it looks like a classy refurb really. I like how the bigger windows help with that.
