Leeds is rapidly expanding its credentials as a hub for dynamic, forward-thinking and growth-focused businesses, both nationally and internationally. According to research on business ‘scale-ups’ – companies with three years of 20% growth in revenues or employees – Leeds is one of the UK’s foremost centres for fast growing firms, behind only London and Cambridge.
For a comprehensive overview of Leeds growth, read our latest journal entry, why you should relocate your business to Leeds.
To accommodate and accelerate this growth, the Majestic plans to open its doors in 2019 offering a super-connected hub for innovative and forward-thinking companies – in the most central location the City has to offer. In this article, we’re going to look at what specifically makes the Majestic the best place to do business in Leeds.
The Majestic is at the very heart of the UK’s second city of business. In a super-prime location, the Majestic is on the doorstep of the North’s busiest railway station, Leeds Central Station, which is the focus of HS2 – the most exciting transport mega-project in Europe. Additional city centre amenities within walking distance of the Majestic can be seen below.
This prime location ensures ease-of-commute for all occupiers of The Majestic. The Safe Workers advisory, an online intelligence platform about workspace safety, states: “The biggest effects on long commutes to work tend to relate to stress-related health issues, the impact upon personal relationships and performance at work.” It’s never been more important to consider your employees’ wellbeing, and The Majestic offers unrivalled connectivity.
The Majestic offers a unique opportunity to welcome the world to your business in the City of Leeds, at the core of a £64 billion plus economy.
Within the Majestic, you will find a stunning office environment, created over multiple levels — the exceptional quality of the design reflecting the exceptional quality of the super-prime location.
The ‘Grade A’ space will bring an ultra-modern, dynamic office environment to further widen the attractiveness of the City for wider and inward investment. Just last year, multi-national conglomerate Burberry announced plans to move 300 jobs from its London office to Leeds and we expect to see more of this.
Become a part of history
The Majestic provides you with the opportunity to become a part of history. This historic landmark has been seen under a number of guises throughout the best part of the last century and is a much-loved Leeds icon – from its inception as a popular cinema in 1922 through its later days as a widely-attended city centre club.
Now, we’re bringing new life to this iconic city centre landmark. The transformation will ensure that, whilst the Majestic of old is represented, the building will have a focus on the future of the city of Leeds – looking toward investment, increasing business prosperity and giving a home to organisations with an international outlook.
Collaboration will be a key focus for the Majestic’s future. Alongside the contemporary office space, you will find the incredible lower ground floor level, which was formally a restaurant that seated 500+ guests, integrated into the ground floor space. The transformation of this part of the Building seeks to provide a relaxed, professional environment that responds to the needs of today’s workforce – one of connectivity, collaboration and ambition.
