One Embankment is a landmark building in the heart of Leeds which has undergone a major renovation with works by The Harris Partnership and Vector Design Concepts. Comprising five-storeys, the building offers a range of flexible working spaces including self-contained open plan office-space, a ground floor reception area and business lounge. Project designer Ketia Fong Wah commented: “Obviously more people are working from home, but the right office space is still business critical. “Demand continues to rise for flexible spaces that offer breakout areas, room for collaboration and an environment that enables creative thinking - and that’s what One Embankment’s new space will deliver.”
