New Occupiers Set to Move into Globe Point in Temple, Leeds

CEG has secured a new tenant at Globe Point, the 40,430 sq ft seven-storey office development on Globe Road within the Temple district of Leeds.

Brand design agency, Robot Food, is moving to a 1,848 sq ft suite on the ground floor. Independent café operator, Butlers, will also officially launch the 65-covers café at the entrance and reception lounge to this striking building.

Simon Forster, Founder and Exec Creative Director at Robot Food, said: “Since moving to Leeds over 10 years ago Holbeck has been our home. Globe Point offers us the perfect opportunity to create a contemporary hybrid working space, designed around our needs in the area we love. The quality of the build, the workplace amenities and the commitment CEG has for the area is what attracted us, and we can’t wait to occupy this visible ground floor space.”

Olivia McDowell, investment manager at CEG said: “We are delighted to welcome the Robot Food team into the fast-growing business community at Globe Point. Designed to set the highest quality benchmark for the Temple district, Globe Point provides contemporary, sustainable space in a landmark building.

“Butlers has for many years provided a fantastic and healthy café bar offer at our Number One Kirkstall Forge development so we are delighted that tenants, and the public, will now benefit at Globe Point. It will bring vibrancy to the lounge area and I’ve no doubt they will put the event space here to good use as well, bringing a lively buzz to the ground floor entrance.”

The new tenant joins Jaywing in the building which will provide a home for more than 400 people. There is strong interest in the remaining space, with terms out on another office suite.

Designed to BREEAM Excellent, the Globe Point workspace maximises natural daylight to deliver healthy, flexible workspaces. The upper floors include terraces which provide spectacular views across the city from the roof gardens. The ground floor café kitchen and business lounge are open to the public and creates a vibrant open space at this site, which lies just a five-minute walk from Leeds City Station’s southern entrance.

Globe Point is the first of CEG’s developments to complete within the Temple district of the city. Fox Lloyd Jones and Knight Frank are marketing the building on behalf of CEG.

Nick Salkeld, director at Fox Lloyd Jones, said: “It’s fantastic to add Robot Food to the growing business community at Globe Point. They fit the spirit and ethos of the building perfectly, with a vibrant workforce and culture. Their new studio will be unique and sit proudly at the head of the landmark flat iron design.” 

Slung Low, which is another new tenant at Temple, began performances earlier this month at its new 131 Water Lane production space. With learners from CEG’s Forging Futures campus helping to transform the warehouse and yard, the space will see independent artists deliver family friendly shows from its outdoor stage on a pay-what-you-decide basis.
