Cushman & Wakefield’s Leeds office has picked up two accolades at the Yorkshire Property Awards 2018.
The awards ceremony, which took place on the 10 May at Rudding Park Hotel, was hosted by children’s charity Variety and was attended by 1,000 professionals from across the Yorkshire commercial property sector.
Cushman & Wakefield was awarded:
- The Game Changer Award – the team picked up the award for the sale of a 67 acre site at Goole 36 to Siemens which was handled by Scott Morrison (Associate) on behalf of Homes England. The disposal to Siemens for a new train manufacturing facility will represent one of the largest inward investments in the region and is set to create up to a 1,000 new jobs.
- Office Deal of the Year – this award was for the acquisition of 46,000 sq ft at 6 Queen Street, Leeds in which C&W’s Business Space team, led by Adam Cockroft (Partner) acted for the tenant, Burberry. The Burberry deal was cited as an example of major inward investment by a globally renowned luxury fashion brand and a significant coup for Leeds. The deal eclipsed the GPA letting, Leeds’ largest ever office disposal, for which Cushman & Wakefield were also shortlisted.
Keith Hardman, Head of the Leeds office said: “We are delighted to have been recognised for our role in two of the most important deals to complete in Yorkshire over the last year. The successes are further testimony to the scale of our market coverage, collaborative working and focus on delivery, coming on the back of the EGi Most Active Investment Agent Award we picked up two months’ ago.
