Knights PLC deal sets record office rent in York with Hudson Quarter pre-let

Richard Dunn / 10 Feb, 20

Knights PLC has signed a pre-let deal at Palace Capital’s Hudson Quarter development in York. The solicitors firm has taken 4,588 sq ft of offices in the Victoria building on a ten-year lease and at a rent of £25.00 psf (after an initial two year period at £12.50 psf) setting a new record for the city’s office rents.


Hudson Quarter is a mixed-use development located opposite York train station. The four separate buildings will comprise 127 luxury apartments and a total of circa 40,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, which is being marketed jointly by office agents at Sanderson Weatherall and JLL.

“I’m pleased to have secured this deal on behalf of Palace Capital and set a new benchmark, office rent in York.

Hudson Quarter is the first Grade A speculative office development of its size in York for over 10 years, and it’s fantastic to have a milestone pre-let for such a landmark development. ”

Richard continued, “We are now targeting a single occupier for the adjacent HQ Offices building of 35,000 sq ft and are in discussions with potential occupiers.

“Knights is a progressive and ambitious firm and a first-class occupier for Hudson Quarter. I’m looking forward to seeing who will become their neighbours and watch the development come to life as we move towards completion early in 2021.”
