Knights moves to design-led York office space

Legal and professional services business Knights has started the fit out of its new office as it relocates its York base to new modern premises.  

Knights will be the first commercial tenant to occupy Hudson Quarter in Central York and supports the wider group’s plans to significantly increase its presence in the city with the new 4,700 sqft office.

Hudson Quarter is a prestigious, sustainable development located opposite York’s train station and includes new landscaped grounds in the heart of the city. In this landmark location, Knights is fulfilling its strategy to grow share in key geographic markets outside London. The office will play a key role in supporting continued recruitment and growth in the region.

The Palace Capital developed scheme has been recently completed after a 26-month construction programme with Caddick Construction acting as main contractor.  The mixed-use development also includes further office space, homes and landscaped grounds. This deal has set a record for York office rents at £25 per sqft.  

Commenting on the new office and plans for growth in York, Jonathan Moore, partner at Knights, commented: “It’s a privilege to work in York and we’ve enjoyed building our team organically over the past year with the recruitment of high quality Partners who have been attracted to Knights due to its unique culture and business model, which offers energetic and commercially minded professionals outstanding opportunities to flourish in their careers.”

“The new offices at Hudson Quarter provide us with a great runway for growth in the region, as we continue to make positive steps to build the leading, premium legal and professional services business outside London. Hudson Quarter really is exceptional, and we can’t wait to welcome colleagues and clients to the building in the near future.” 

Neil Sinclair, chief Executive of Palace Capital, added: “Knights is a forward thinking and ambitious business and so we are thrilled to welcome them to Hudson Quarter as our first commercial occupier. There has also been tremendous interest in the remaining office space and we feel that this development offers something unique in the city.”

The fit out process is expected to be completed in July, when Knights will move from its current Museum Street office.
