Rishi Sunak opens UK Infrastructure Bank at incspaces
Our U.K office provider, incspaces has confirmed that UK Infrastructure Bank (UKIB) will take up residency at its Leeds site after Chancellor Rishi Sunak officially opened the space at One Embankment.
The arrival of UKIB to incspaces means that One Embankment will have reached 80% occupancy just one month after opening its doors, following record levels of demand for flexible space in the city. This new home for UKIB could see up to 200 new jobs created in the city and will help support economic growth on a regional and national level.
incspaces Managing Director Charlie Cudworth said, “We are delighted to welcome UKIB to One Embankment. This is a milestone for both the wider Leeds business community and us, and this strategic commitment by UKIB shows a real demand for a return to office life post-pandemic.
“With tenants such as UKIB, which has been purposefully created to grow regional economies across the country, incspaces are better placed than ever before to welcome people back to the office and help them to work in a greener, more sustainable way.”
UKIB is a new government-owned policy bank launched by Chancellor Rishi Sunak, which will use a £22bn cash injection to tackle climate change and support regional economic growth.
Nicholas Gibby, Office Agent at JLL, played a crucial role in bringing UKIB to Leeds. He said, “This is an exciting new organisation that will unlock billions of pounds of investment to help Leeds and other cities across the UK to level up while prioritising climate change and sustainability initiatives. JLL is delighted to have worked with UKIB & incspaces to deliver this project so expeditiously.”
