Rushbond gives major sneak peek into what lies inside the Majestic


Anticipation is building around the Majestic, following confirmation late last year that it will be home to Channel 4’s new national HQ – leaving four floors of the iconic building available to lease.

Now, developer Rushbond has given a further insight into what can be expected from the completed scheme, as it releases a new tranche of CGIs ahead of completion in Q2 this year.

Mark Finch, director at Rushbond, said: “As the contractor moves towards completion, the building is changing every day – and we begin to move from concept visuals to proper photography!

“This final batch of CGIs not only portrays how the new contemporary additions will sit within the historic fabric of the building, but also looks at ways in which the interior floors could be configured and designed, as inspiration for potential occupiers.

“The contrast of new and old is serving to create a captivating space which will be a fitting home for exciting, forward-thinking businesses in Leeds, unlike anything else currently on the market.

“Interest in the remaining floors, from the super-height lower ground through to the third, continues to be strong as we move towards spring.”

The Majestic first opened as a 2,400-seat cinema back in 1922 and has been redesigned to create 66,000 sq. ft. of future-focused office accommodation across seven floors.

The development is currently on-site, with construction due to complete in Q2 2020.

The Majestic redevelopment has been designed by DLA Architecture and is being constructed by Sir Robert McAlpine.

Knight Frank and JLL are joint marketing agents acting on behalf of the Rushbond Group.
