The letting follows a strong year for Sky Betting and Gaming which has seen a 30% increase in revenue since locating to Number 2 Wellington Place one year ago.
Sky Betting and Gaming also estimates that both employee productivity and retention has increased since locating to Wellington Place.
Richard Flint, Managing Director at Sky Betting and Gaming, said: “We have now passed our first anniversary of being located at Wellington Place and already the impact of the sense of space, quality of accommodation and central location has had a noticeable impact on employee wellbeing. Over this period, our revenue has shot up 30% and we very much consider that the positive environment here at Wellington Place has been a strong contributing factor.”
Sky Betting and Gaming currently occupies 14,500 sq ft at Number 2, Wellington Place – a seven-storey, Grade A office building in Leeds city centre.
MEPC has recently invested £1m to turn the Wellington Place site into an award-winning community hub with urban gardens and five-a-side football pitch to create a unique, dynamic business estate with a strong focus on sustainability.
Andrew Barlow, Managing Director at MEPC, said: “We are delighted that Sky Betting and Gaming has decided to take on additional space and hope that the next 12 months and beyond will be equally productive and profitable. Despite the climate, there is clearly confidence in Leeds.
“From our British Military Fitness sessions to five-a-Side football, allotments and free bike hire - we invest a great deal in ensuring that the Wellington Place environment is one which supports employee productivity. It is clear that a wide variety of businesses can see a direct benefit to their bottom line by investing in quality office accommodation which forms part of a vibrant business community.”
Eamon Fox, associate director at DTZ who with Jones Lang LaSalle acted for MEPC, said: “The fact that Sky Betting and Gaming has extended their space is testament to the high quality of the accommodation and excellent customer service provided by the MEPC team.”
Sky Betting and Gaming is joined by Towers Watson, RSM Tenon, Irwin Mitchell, Allianz and Regus at Number 2 Wellington Place.
