Channel 4’s Leeds HQ Office Building Complete

Channel 4’s Leeds HQ Office Building Completed
19 November 2020
 

A landmark Leeds office building, destined to be Channel 4’s headquarters, has reached completion.

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

The third, fourth and fifth floors of the building will become home to Channel 4, with teams from across the organisation coming together to operate out of the iconic building.

Channel 4 is scheduled to move into the building later this year.

"A Leading-Edge Workspace"

 

The Majestic was designed by DLA Architecture and constructed by Sir Robert McAlpine. Knight Frank and JLL are joint marketing agents acting on behalf of the Rushbond Group.

Mark Finch, Real Estate director at Rushbond, commented: “Leeds is now a vibrant, tech-driven city with a huge and growing pool of talent. The Majestic sits proudly at its heart, and the transformation of this well-loved landmark is creating a leading-edge workspace with unrivalled amenity, location and cache.

“Channel 4’s commitment to the building is a testament to the ambitious vision of the Leeds City Region, as well as the excitement and interest in the next chapter of the Majestic story.

“The building offers an unparalleled opportunity for those looking to Leeds as a viable source for business growth, innovation and creativity.  To be alongside a stellar brand such as Channel 4, within a Leeds icon like The Majestic, is a rather special opportunity”.
