The opportunity comprises 15 flats within a wider block, which was redeveloped in 2005 to create 350 flats, all of which have been constructed in a spacious and contemporary style. Each flat has been finished to a high specification which provides two bedrooms, two bathrooms, balcony/terrace, built in appliances and video phone entry system. The approximate sizes of the flats are detailed in the table below.

The building benefits from a ground floor piazza with ground floor commercial and leisure accommodation with occupiers including Greggs, Co-operative food store as well as a range of bars, bistros and restaurants.

The flats currently generate an income of £156,480 per annum. The rent is subject to a cap under the Section 106 agreement which increases annually with RPI. We consider the maximum rent under the Section 106 to be approximately £186,000 per annum.

West Point is situated within Leed's West End an established residential and commercial location in the city which continues to attract investment and established commercial occupiers. The property is located approximately 500m from the core city centre and within walking distance of Leeds Railway Station and Bus Station. Wellington Street connects the A58(M) Inner Ring Road to the main core of Leeds the properties are therefore ideally situated for both access in and out of the city.

Long Leasehold

The property is let on 15 separate Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) agreements. Please see the tenancy schedule for more information.

An agreement under S106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 is in place for the 15 flats. The agreement commits the developer to provide the accommodation as affordable housing for a period of no less than 25 years from the completion of the units, or until the council can be satisfied that all reasonable endeavours have been made to dispose of the units as affordable housing.

It has not been demonstrated to the council that all reasonable endeavours have been made to dispose of the units as affordable housing; therefore the provisions of the agreement continue to apply. A copy of both the Agreement (Dated 02/08/2001) and the Deed of Variation (Dated 16/08/2004) are available in the legal pack.
