Avenue HQ – A glimpse of the future in the heart of Leeds

Paragon Interiors Group Plc

Leeds is a city that is bold in its vision, blending a tradition of industrial might with a fresh, modern approach to business.

Thanks to Paragon Interiors, this vibrant city will soon have another addition to its compelling offering, with the launch of Avenue HQ’s latest co-working centre, located on East Parade, right in the heart of Leeds city centre.

The business launched in Liverpool and is fast establishing itself at the forefront of the modern approach to the workplace, creating vibrant communities through flexible workspaces including co-working, private offices, meeting rooms, studios, event space, bars and cafes.

Earlier this summer, Liverpool’s Avenue HQ was crowned ‘National Co-Working Space of the Year’ by The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed (IPSE).

The award celebrates ‘the important role co-working spaces play in creating a nurturing, inclusive and stimulating environment for the UK’s 4.8 million-strong self-employed workforce.’

Leeds is built in the same pioneering spirit as the Liverpool base but has a very different feel and look, as Paragon Interiors seeks to fuse the industrial heritage of the city with the vibrant creative economy the city is increasingly known for.

We secured this prestigious 32,000 sq. feet design and build project thanks to our one-team approach, allowing us to deliver this stunning facility in a fast and professional manner ahead of their launch in September

Set across 5 floors and just a 5-minute walk from Leeds Station, Avenue HQ Leeds has 200 co-working desks, 35 private offices, 10 meeting room and an executive boardroom plus a fully licensed bar, café, extensive event space and even a spectacular roof terrace affording wonderful views of the city.

Kelly Bell, who is heading up the project and is herself from Leeds comments;

‘This is an incredible project to work on, not just from the design and build perspective and the creation of a stunning new base for co-workers here in the city but because this is a business that is at the forefront of the modern way of working.

‘This is not just a building or a facility, it is part of the entire ecosystem of Leeds. It will create and foster a new community of vibrant, flexible, dynamic entrepreneurs and businesses that will make a major contribution to the city from a professional and cultural perspective. We are very proud to be playing a role in that and increasing our work and profile in this fantastic city.’

Co-working is one of the hottest workplace and organisational trends across the globe right now, already accounting for more than 27million sq. feet of office space across the United States. It is an area that will shape careers, organisations and economies for decades to come and Paragon is at the heart of it.

In fact, keep your eye on Avenue HQ and Paragon Interiors, we may well have more good news to share about our own future here very soon…
