“Where once lace was stored and finished for customers from around the world, smart offices for the 21st century have been created within the original distinctive architecture.”

“Becky and Victoria, chief executive, are proud of the careful cleaning and restoration of the stone and brickwork which has included sensitive re-pointing. Some tenants have moved offices within the Spenbeck ownership. The first floor heart of Birkin, more recently a nightclub, has been taken by Learning Pool, which retains the DJ booth and bar as features.”

“There is a strong demand for offices in the Lace Market and Creative Quarter”
