The rental gap between prime offices in Leeds and London is the widest it has ever been according to the latest Spotlight: Leeds Offices report from international real estate advisor Savills.  The firm states that Grade A rents in Leeds city centre currently stand at £27 per sq ft (£291 per sq m), compared to £95 sq ft (£1,023 sq m) in the City of London, which will be a key factor in attracting ‘north-shoring’ firms seeking lower staff and property costs outside the capital.
